True love is forever...
and if you're a fan of Team Jacob or Team Edward,
then this is a party you will remember forever!
Decorating ideas for the Edward and Bella Party may be taken right off the Twilight book covers. Twilight, this book has hands holding an apple against a black background. The second novel in the Saga, New Moon, has a Parrot Tulip in red and white. The third novel in the Saga, Eclipse, has a piece of red satin ribbon against a black background. The final Novel in the Saga, Breaking Dawn, has a white Chess Queen and a red Pawn against a black background. So it looks like the color scheme should be red, black and white. What an intense backdrop this color scheme will create for your party.
There are a few main elements in setting up this particular theme party. Red, black and white are the "team" colors for Twilight. The Twilight ambience is created with twinkle light and candles. Lighting is always a key in creating the atmosphere. Plenty of candles, both tealights and block candles are used. Famous quotes from the book and movie are framed, totally as eyecatchers! A classy touch is added by scattering some dark red acrylic sea glass along the theme table.
The theme table centrepiece is of course the red velvet cake inspired by all four book covers. The cupcakes with vampire bites and flashing red gel driping down by the side like blood really make a statement about Bella and Edwards love. Every each comes with a 2" circular party embellishments of personalized themed cupcake toppers. They stand in three different designs, Edward, Jacob and Bella. It's exciting to see which design is taken out first!
Twilight goodie bag fillers include vampire fangs, battery operated red devil horns, red juicy apples, clappers, horns, LED finger pointers, glow stick bangles and candy in cellophane bags with personalized rectangular favor tags. Each of the tags is labeled with an Eclipse-themed word + “treats” (i.e. vampire treats, newborn treats, wolf treats, etc).

Take a trip under the sea with a Mermaid Party. The idea is to create an under water world experience. Think Disney Little Mermaid! Under the water, shades of blue, green and teal. You will have all your guests feeling like they’ve finally reached never-never-land!
Decorations for your Little Mermaid party should be fun and vibrant, bringing to life the under the sea flavor of the movie.
The room is decorated using colors of aqua, blue and green. Party tables are covered with ocean blue table cloth. A fishnet is then draped over the party table and decorated with starfish, large jewels and sparkle confetti. Shells are placed in glass bowls filled with crystal cubes and also left scattered on the tables as confetti. A bubble machine is kept running at the entrance. Themed music like songs from the Disney Little Mermaid Soundtrack is played all along.
A glittery backdrop made of blue turquoise fabric will provide an instant ocean backdrop. Little Mermaid danglers are added to the decorations to create dimensions. They are hanged from the ceiling for an awesome floating effect that makes the most of the decorating space. Squiggle seaweed is a fantastic decoration for this party. The seaweed makes a great accent to entrances or scattered around the room. They are paired with a backdrop of water patterned gossamer decorating material for a really awesome effect. Crepe and shimmery paper creates great underwater effect. Each little mermaid guest would feel like entering an underwater palace.
The best thing in holding out a party is having it thematic all the way from the start, as early as in choosing the venue. Children will certainly remember a great party. Watching the fish and rays is always mesmerizing, escpecially when there's a scuba diver feeding the beautiful fishes. A rare unforgetable experience!
