The color theme was officially red and black. The setting we were going for was elegant, a reflection on the party Edward's family threw for Bella, with candles and glam. For this party, I was worried about many candles and lots of teenagers, so besides a couple of carefully placed red tapers, I set out a lot of the small flameless tea candles. I placed several in glass bowls through the livingroom and dining area, which added an elegant sparkle. I don't know why I didn't take pictures of other areas, but I'm sure everyone can sympathize with how hard it is to journal an event when you're in the middle of making it happen.
For cake, we made cupcakes and ran out on a color copier some Twilight images for cupcakes I found on the internet. Those were cut out and pasted onto toothpicks. They made cute cupcake picks, especially with the red and black tubing decorating the girls did. Then of course we put out lots of snack food and let everyone enjoy the party.
