Back in March, I read the entire Twilight series . Saying I enjoyed it was an understatement. It took over my life for a week, and during that time I did nothing outside of reading and daydreaming about vampires.
Hey. I’m just being real.
Well, I found out that I’m definitely not the only woman who felt this way. My friend Rebecca and I figured that we may as well embrace the fact that we loved Twilight, and not hide it. There is nothing to be embarrassed about.
This got the ball rolling. I decided to host a New Moon premier party at our house, complete with cocktails, food, games and a showing of Twilight. Then, we will all go see the new movie together.
Then a few other gals wanted in. Then a couple more. People actually began reading the books because they wanted to come to the soiree. We ended up giving invites to about 40 people.
haha…. my house doesn’t fit 40 people. But, we’ll figure it out. It’s Twilight after all… magic can indeed happen.
So, we figured that we needed an invite that would set the tone. I mean, it had to be elegant, fun and pretty. Pretty was a necessity.
Then Laura jumped in and volunteered to make the invites for us! (She’s a fan of Twilight, too, will be at the party, and is one of the gals I saw the first movie with.) And, when Laura does something, she goes all out.
Look what we came up with (okay…. Laura came up with most of it, but I was there, too):
The invites consists of lovely black, red and white shimmery papers. I mean… shimmery was a necessity. After all, Edward does, in fact, glimmer like diamonds.
(Please note that Laura has offered a 10 percent discount to NewlyWoodwards readers – check out the sidebar. I also put a watermark on these photos. It may be a little of my crazy coming out, but these were an original idea.)
Laura cut the pieces (including the folder and apple cut-out above) and then we assembled together. I’m pretty handy with a tape dispenser.
So, since the invites clearly set the bar high, we’ve begun planning other aspects of the party. I’ll be sharing the ideas and links soon so if you are planning, you can hopefully get some inspiration.
For now, let me know what you think of the invites and the craze of Twilight as a whole. Are you planning a get-together for the movie premier?
