New Moon Event

The New Moon Event in Salt Lake City...

Myself and a good friend of mine.

Bella's truck

There was an Edward look-a-like who had a booth and was taking pictures with people. I took one with my sister, Meridith--the Anne from Lizzie Anne Designs. We shared our booth there.

Edward played the piano quite well and he was really sweet with all the little girls who came up to him.

Alice's yellow Porsche.

The event had different "rooms" from Forks and LaPush. This was the Cullen's living room complete with Bella's cake.

There was even a broken vase with scattered flowers...

And even a smattering of blood!

An awesome cake decorator made this cake of Forks and ...

Of LaPush.

Billy's house. By the way, guess who made the signs... Yep! we did.

Gearing up for New Moon

For all you Twilight fans out there, there is a big two-day event in Salt Lake City November 19-20. The New Moon Experience will be held at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy, Utah. This event is put on by Twilight Moms and will raise money for Alex's Lemonade Stand. (Excellent charity IMHO). Follow the link to get tickets. Though we're not listed yet, I'll be there in a booth with my favorite stamp company, Lizzie Anne Designs. We'll be selling some fun Twilight themed vinyl projects as well as other cute craft items perfect for holiday gifts.

More Twilight Ideas

Every good party needs a centerpiece and what better way to decorate than a vase with Bella & Edward's initials? The vase I chose is a bit more modern, because it's what I envision Alice would choose when decorating for Bella's birthday.

Twilight Themed Party Goods

It's shockingly been nearly a year since my last post. I've had a number of challenges this last year, including various health issues. I'm doing better at the moment, and I'm trying to get back on top of things.

My sister told me the other day about her friend's complaint that there is a lack of Twilight themed party goods. It put a little bee in my bonnet, and well, you can see the result. I bought an inexpensive black charger plate at a local big box store, cut the book titles out of vinyl and applied. I photographed it with a plain white plate.

And again with a red acrylic plate in the center (playing off the red, black and white theme of the books). I'm pretty happy with the results.

The labels are removable if I want to use the chargers for something else (acrylic chargers are NOT food grade plastic, so you do need to put a plate on top of the charger).

We're actually going to be at the New Moon Experience Event at the South Towne Expo Center and we're thinking we might sell sets of these vinyl labels (in sets of four), for anyone who wants an easy way to create a Twilight-themed party.
