The Twilight Saga- Throwing a DVD Release Party

First off, I have to admit to everyone that I have been in the middle of Breaking Dawn for over a year and I’m not sure I will finish it before the movie comes out! Some of you might be gasping in disbelief, while others might be wondering how I even made it through the first 3 books! Either way I don’t claim to be a huge Twilight fan, but I will say the social-ness surrounding all the hype is a ton of fun for me! Each time a movie is released in the theaters, 2 of my close friends rent out 2 theaters and sell tickets for a private screening the day before the movie is released (no waiting all night in line for me, thank you very much!). I also have another friend who throws a DVD release party the day the movie comes to the stores, which makes for a fun girls night in- let me tell ya! This particular friend just sent her invitations for the DVD release party of Eclipse, and they were so fun I just had to share them with all of you! Take a look and recreate them for your own party-
How cute are those?!? 
So it got me thinking about possible other ideas for a “Twilight themed party” and my internet search was quickly overwhelming with so many fun ideas. Here is just a handful of what I found:
1. Cute cupcakes that look like blood is dripping from them, from Retro Bakery featured on  Hostess with the Mostess
2. Bloody liccorice, from Hostess with the Mostess
3. Jell-O shots in syringes, from Makin’ Mud Pies
4. Cullenify your pictures, from Handmade News
5. I thought the “Forks” cupcake card holders were clever, from Twicrack Addict
6. “Keep Calm” redo for all Team Edward members, from Craftily Ever After
7. Free Blood Type drink label printables, from Hostess with the Mostess
8. Twilight Survial Kit, from The Dating Divas
9. Make a Twilight bookmark with a huge selection of images, from Bella and Edward
There is also a ton of fun ideas on the Twilight Party Flikr Group.
So get social and throw a party already! 
And which team are you on anyway? And don’t say “Edward in the books, Jacob in the movies.” Pick one. 
And I have to add a quote from my male friend who came home one day to find his wife looking at pictures of Taylor Lautner on the internet:
“If I were online looking up topless pictures of a 17 year old girl, I’d be locked up! Double standard!” 
ha ha ha….

    I am a HUGE Twihard..Have read all the books and seen all the movies(several times!!!) Team Edward all the way…My SIL and niece got me hooked…

    I jumped on the Twilight bandwagon early last year (after all the books had been released and a while after the first movie). Once I started reading the books, which I always do before watching a movie, I was hooked! I read them all in less than a week.

    Our house is divided. I'm an Edward fan all the way. My mom, is a Jacob fan. So it's a running joke between us.

    I'm thinking I need a DVD release party with all the movies. LOVE the ideas you shared!

    love the blood type drink printables! Also, tell your husband there is a BIG difference between a topless girl and a topless boy!

    Edward. I don't like Jacob anyway you slice him. I think I might be a Twilight fan just to throw the parties. I threw a big one at the movie release (and blogged about it for a solid week…oops), and now my group is planning a 'halfway to Breaking Dawn' party this March…not to mention our Breaking Dawn party next November….and….oh…nevermind.
