Your Parties: Ashli in Wisconsin, Twilight Party

I had a bunch of friends over to watch Twilight new on DVD. I've been planning this party for quite a while and I had lots of fun planning all the details. There were quite a few people there that I didn't know very well, and it was fun to get to know some more people here in our new place. We ate lots of yummy food (everyone was very creative with their Twilight-themed snacks), watched the movie, and gabbed. Thanks everyone for coming!

Here's the sign I made to hang on the front door.

I put different tags on the glasses so everyone would remember which glass was theirs after setting it down. I made strawberry flavored red heart ice cubes to put in soda for the drink. It was yummy and a cool effect.

I made red velvet cupcakes. My sister-in-law Charise made red velvet cupcakes too, and it wasn't planned at all. She put edible glitter on hers so they sparkled. I also made blood (red caramel) covered red apples. Very Twilightish, and yummy!
More blood...Strawberries and angel food cake
My friend Greta made this yummy red popcorn. We also had "blood" popsicles, apple crisp, Count Chocula bars, and cookies. At the end of the night, everyone went home with a box like this filled with goodies. What a fun, night!

I requested the recipe for the red bloody popcorn from Ashli's friend Gretta:
Greta's Popcorn

1 c corn syrup
1/2 c sugar
1 (3 oz.) package Jello gelatin (any flavor)
10 c popped corn

Mix all ingredients except popcorn in heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook just till sugar ad jello are dissolved. Pour over popcorn and mix well and fast. Bake at 300 degrees for 45 min, stirring every 15 minutes. Let sit and cool.

Store in air tight container.
