Breaking Dawn

In honor of the release of the movie, Breaking Dawn this coming Friday, I thought I would share with you the Twilight Party I had for my daughter back in 2009 when the first movie (Twilight) was released.

Olivia & her friends were/are huge Twilight fans, so I tried my best to impress them. At the time, there really wasn't alot of merchandise out there, so I had to get creative.

The table all set in the red, white & black theme (OMG, I'm glad those green walls are gone,  I hated them!)

Anyone care for an Edward bar?

The part that really surprised my daughter...I made all these signs and hung them all over the house, including the bathroom. You should have heard the girls squeal with delight when they found a sign.

A Twilight vignette complete with a life sized Edward Cullen. Every party needs a life sized Edward! Just saying. A life sized Jacob Black wouldn't be too shabby either. ;D

The cake was really difficult because I had to make it myself. The baking wasn't the problem, it was the decorating. I managed to find that sugar image online, but I had a terrible time adhering it to the cake. I'll never attempt this again.  The girls didn't mind though, just so long as they got a piece with their favorite character on it!

Only the Twihards drink "The Nectar of the Volturi" aka Hawaiian Punch. Oh boy, did the girls get a kick out of that!

The girls insisted that no Twilight party would be complete without a little vampire baseball!

So there you have it...Olivia's birthday party 2009 done Twilight-style! Just looking at these pictures makes me smile & wish I was giving the party again. I've got so many more ideas I would like to use.
