eclipse movie release party

Saturday I hosted a fun little Eclipse movie party. I used a few ideas from my Twilight party, and a few new ideas. Because I had been in Utah for two weeks a week before this party, I had planned on keeping things really low key. That didn't work. I guess I can't throw a party "low key." That's okay because it turned out great and everyone had a great time (I think).

These little party favors were kinda last minute, but I love how they turned out. Eclipse ornaments for all the guests to take home and hang on their tree, plus a little chocolate because no party favor is complete without chocolate.

I covered the drink glasses with blood (aka red corn syrup). I loved how it looked with the frothy white pina colada drink inside-I just forgot to take a picture of it.

I wish I could say that I made these cookies, but I did not. My very talented friend Brittney made them. Can you even believe the detail on each cookie, taken from the various Twilight book covers? Amazing. Before I ate mine, I thought, "These look too cute to eat." Then I ate it and thought, "I'm sure glad I decided to eat that, because it was delicious!"
We had a great time eating, talking and watching the movie. I can't wait for the Breaking Dawn party, (which won't be for another year and a halfish).
