Luckily, her birthday is in September, so a lot of the Halloween props and goodies were already in stores. It would have been easy to go crazy with buying all kinds of Sookie-inspired stuff - but budget should always be a factor in these kinds of events. (Saves money for an awesome gift, no?)
With a little bit of planning and a whole lot of fun, my BF pulled off one hell of a party.
It's all about the details.
Despite our best efforts, neither Eric nor Bill were able to drop in for the big event (no matter how many creepy fan letters I sent to Alex Skarsgard).
Instead, we created an environment that would comfort any of the True Blood cast.

We also created signage in Fangtasia lettering, mixed up some blood burgers, and the birthday girl wore an awesome Merlott's t-shirt. True Blood played on the DVD player for most of the night. So much fun!
If you're planning a Halloween-inspired birthday party, there are some great resources online to help you with the details. To get you started, you can Google search ideas, or check out - you guessed it - Pinterest.
Happy planning of your monster bash!
23 sleeps until Halloweeen...
