One of my mother-in-laws favorite book and movie series is Twilight, so for her birthday this year I put on a Twilight themed dinner for her and the rest of the family.
-Twilight Themed Dinner-
Using two pieces of black poster board and some red Die-Cut Letters from The Dollar Tree I made a Vampire fang Happy Birthday sign.
I covered the table with a red table cloth then put a folded black table cloth down the middle of the table as a table runner. I set the table using black plates, black bowls and black napkins.
I made blood dripped candles by melting a red candle over 3 different sized white candles. I placed them on a silver platter then put a couple white and dark pink colored flowers (Eclipse Book Cover) that I found at The Dollar Tree on the tray as well.
I served a red wine, Riunite Lambrusco, so I put a wine glass at each adult table setting. I also made blood dripped glasses for the other beverages I was serving...ice tea, water and soda.
I didn't start making dinner tell everyone got to our house so I put out a few munchies for everyone to eat while they were waiting: red white and black jelly beans, black and red licorice, Bugles (fangs) and Chex Mix served in a black dog bowl for the Werewolves...I thought it was funny!
camp in I put Spruce & Citrus melts in my potpourri crock to make the house smell like the woods.
I also made my mother-in-laws dog a collar with Leah's name on it.
It was a lot of fun coming up with all these Twilight ideas and setting up all the decorations. Dinner was really good, the blood dripped glasses were a huge hit and most importantly my mother-in-law loved everything. Another successful themed dinner!
