The book covers alone made great dramatic decorations! It was amazing how many red an black things came out of the woodwork once we started decorating!
The fabulous images I used in the frames came from the Hostess with the Mostess found <here>.Credit for the glass ideas goes to these inspirational people <here>.
I found some great drink options at Cost Plus World Market ranging from Pomegranate and Raspberry Soda, Soda Water with Cranberry, Cranberry Apple Juice and Sangria. Cindy found the coolest beer (that was non alcoholic) at Bev Mo. Apple Beer, see <here>.
We were in fact on a special diet of Red and Black foods. Some of the things on the menu:
Hot Tamales, Cherry Sours, Licorice BITES, Black (blue) and red corn chips with salsa and bean dip, cherry tomatoes with a Kalamata Olive spread, cherry tomatoes, chocolate covered strawberries and licorice, red velvet cake, red chips with a red pepper spread, Squid ink pasta and Chianti Wine pasta sauteed with sun dried tomatoes in olive oil and seasoning, and home made strawberry ice cream with dark chocolate pieces! MMMM so good!
We had a photo shoot with each guest and the famous apple. I was the guinea pig and we tried out different lighting. Cindy is such a good photographer to think of that! I think she did a great job capturing everyone so well.Sarah
read the Twilight books before me and was entertained by tortured looks while I had to get through work before I could read again!
She knit her shrug!
Ahh I love this photo! Its so cool! Great pose! Great outfit!
Isn't she so cute! She picked out a special Around the Glass Designs pendant that looks like it has blood spattered on it!
