My Twilight Birthday Party!!!!

Yes, that's right! I am that much of a dork..and though I won't mention exactly how old I am (trust me..it's too old to be having a tween novel-themed party) but like I said, I'm all into Twilight and it's my Birthday... so I can "Twi" if I want to (did I mention I'm a dork?
Bad pun intended lol)
So My friend, and fellow Twigirl, Kalena and I had a joint Twilight party...(that's what friends are for, right? To share in dorkdom and have Twilight B-day parties together~ we would have never had the courage to throw one on our own..so we did it together..it was less embarassing if we did it together? maybe not..)
Between the two of us we have had way too many years of Martha Stewart Living subscriptions and with my crafty blogging..the decorations got kinda out of hand..but I loved it all!!!!

We framed favorite quotes from the books...and used satin red ribbons ala New Moon for deocrations...

Me and My Edward Cullen a.k.a Matthew, the bestest husband in the universe and all around Super hero...He loves and accepts my crazy twilight obsession...gotta love him.


Kalena's gf's brought her Edward for her birthday...well he's two-dimensional...but it was AMAZING!!! I can't even post the pics of the things that happened to him throughout the night...let's just say~ bringing a bunch of women together and giving them a safe space to share their love and devotion of all things Edward Cullen lead to some inhibitions being let loose...lol




Kalena's so damn clever! She used the cards from her Borders DVD set to make a banner for her mantle...and we set the books out to tie in the theme...



and here's me, I finally got the New Moon tshirt!!! I also got a LOAD of twilight gifts~ amazing!!! I can't wait for the movie to come out..Nov.20th!!!


and since we went everywhere begging for someone to make us a twilight cake..and no one would- (somethng about copyright laws.. I looked online and saw tons of people with twilight pics on cakes??? In NE Ohio- I guess they take copyright laws seriously as I swear the lady at the Giant Eagle bakery almost screamed at us...lol)
We decided to make twilight cupcakes.and honestly, I think they came out better than any store-bought cake!
They were Red velvet cupcakes~ with red and black dyed butter cream frosting..I got the silver glitter edible sprinkles and silver cups at Michaels...
I made the cupcake pics with popsicle sticks, some of my favorite twilight pics and little black satin bows..I loved the way they came out..and they tasted as good as they looked :)
and last but not least..the presents! We got so many neat things..and Kalena and I made each other twilight gifts...and yes, those are pics we framed and put out from our trip to the twilight convention in Chicago..We got "professional" pics with Ashely Green and Peter Facenelli (Alice and Carlisle)...at the time we were psyched, but upon receiveing them we were both too embarassed to put them out in our homes(see, we do have some boundaries...lol) so we used them for our party!!!
So, I hope I didn't embarass myself too much by posting my obsession all over the place here..I guess that's the advantage of getting older..you kinda just don't care what other peole think as much lol
I suffer from O.C.D. (Obsessive Cullen Disorder) ...I admit it.

Edward is nice but I was always pulling for Jacob myself. I wish she'd write him his own story.
Happy belated Birthday!

Stumbled across your blog -- I just had my 33rd birthday and it was Twilight-themed -- it was UNBELIEVABLE and the best time ever!

I LOVE your cupcake idea, with the tongue-depressor looking sticks and everything -- fantastic!
