A Night of Twilight

Awhile back Ken helped his sister with some games for a Twilight party. Since we were already half way there, we (I) decided to go ahead and have a Twilight party of my own. We asked everyone to bring a Twilight themed food and encouraged costumes. Unfortunately, I quit taking pictures after the first few minutes, so I only have one of the amazing treats that were brought. My book club girls totally pulled through! I also don't have any pictures of "Pin the Hair on Edward", another highlight of the evening. Ken and I secretly filmed the husbands of several of the women who were coming saying quotes from the books, in costume. Yes, we had a grown man in an Afro wig saying, "He leaned closer, his pale glorious face just inches from mine..." and another in a Jason mask with a knife saying, "Does my being half naked bother you?". We kept the wives completely clueless so it was a total shock when suddenly their husbands appeared on screen. It was the hit of the night and turned out even funnier than we'd planned. Here are a few pictures from the evening.This is what greeted them on the front door. It says, "Thanks for coming to our Twilight party! The children are in bed, please come around to the back door and let yourself in!"This is what was on the back door. It says, "You made it! Come in! Follow the wolf prints to get to the party!"As they came inside they met Edward #3. He said " Be careful. Don't trip. I have enough of my hands trying to keep Bella safe, let alone a bunch of grown women."The final quote read, "You're almost there. I hope you are ready to party! Just watch out for the wolves and please don't betray our secrets!" I must admit I chuckled to myself the whole time I was making these and putting them up. I thought I was pretty funny.We had a "Blood Bar" for our drinks. All of our red drinks were labeled with blood types.The silverware was sparkly, in honor of our sparkling vampires. I thought that was a nice little touch.Yes, that is Edward holding out a rose. Yes, that is Voldemort's body.Just another decoration shot. We had those pictures of movie characters hung all around the room.My sister, Tami, made these amazing werewolf cupcakes. They were so awesome, the picture really does it no justice. I saved one to give to Abe the next day and he thought it was so cool.
These are the only pictures I have that were taken during the actual party, and of course it was during the boring part, the quiz. Oh well. It really was fun, I promise.

I was giggling when I saw the Edward Faces, and honestly, I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I thought of their husbands dressing up :) Sounds like a great party.

Kim... I must say that you are among the most creative, quirky, funny, crazy people I know. That husband dress up thing actually made me laugh out loud. I tried to picture Aaron doing it and laughed even harder (knowing of course that it would never happen. ha ha. Thanks for the laugh.

Werewoves and vampires. Witches and gnomes. Watch out for the guests that you invite into your homes. Edward or Jacob in the moonlight or twilight might appear. Blood and confusion promote weird dreams to fear.

It was such a great party, Kim! I will always remember the video of our husbands being the highlight of the evening. What fun!

I wish there was a picture of Tami there. She really did a good job the the cupcakes. She said they turned out awful and they really didn't. Glad your party was fun.

This is an amazing party. I think that perhaps you should throw parties for a living. I have an idea though... could you ever post what you spent on one of these super cool parties? I would like to know if it is pretty expensive to go to all this work or not. And where you get the stuff from.

You are so creative! What a hilarious idea! I wish I could have seen the film of the husbands.

It was such a great party! And the highlight definitely was our hilarious husbands dressed up and saying cheesy lines from the books! You are so creative!
