Last weekend, I co-hosted a bridal shower for my oldest friend; we have known each other since 4th grade. She asked for a Twilight themed bash. I was happy to oblige! I decided to put together a comprehensive guide for you to throw your own Twilight party (bridal or otherwise).

Colors

  • Black, red, and white are a natural choice.
  • Want something a little more girly? Go for a pink theme from Bella’s birthday party in New Moon (lots of pink roses and candles).
  • You can also take inspiration from the wedding from Breaking Dawn – Part I: bunches of beautiful white flowers and a rustic feel.

Invitations

Pick invitation to mimic your theme. Etsy is a wonderful choice for reasonably priced invitations, many that you can print yourself. For the bridal shower, I bought the customized digital file for $13, printed it on cardstock, and cut them myself. Use a wax seal for extra pizazz! Here are some invitation ideas:

Food

There is lots of Italian food throughout the books – Bella has ravioli at the restaurant with Edward at Port Angeles and the Cullen family makes Italian food for Bella during her first visit to their home. Here are just a couple ideas:

  • Antipasto¬†platter
  • Ravioli with dipping sauce
  • Pasta bar (different pasta and sauces)
  • Meatballs
  • Bruschetta
  • Spinach and artichoke dip with pieces of bread or chips
  • Caprese salad skewers
  • Grilled polenta
  • Mini pizzas
  • Stuffed olives

Desserts

Whether it is an elaborate cake or a simple, fruit-based dessert, everyone will love these yummy treats:

Jacob Cupcakes (spicy chocolate)

Decorations

For a red, black, and white theme:

  • Make Martha’s famous tissue paper pom poms and hang them at varying heights around the room
  • Fill vases and apothecary jars with red apples
  • Use rose petals on the food/gift tables
  • Keep the lights dim. Maybe it will even rain for a true Forks experience!
  • Buy cardboard cutouts of Edward and Jacob and set up a photo backdrop with props so guests can take funny pictures with their preferred Twilight man candy.
  • Play the Twilight score or soundtrack to set the mood.
  • Make Edward and Jacob buttons and have guests choose one when they arrive. If you don’t have a button machine, you can use these.
  • Use these great printables from Hostess with the Mostess (including¬†signs and drink labels)

Favors

And, of course, have fun!

Great! The bride-to-be loved it, and it could be applied to lots of different kinds of Twilight parties :)
