May 10th: Books as Event Themes
— It’s party season, whether that is high school prom, weddings, or summer holiday events. What books would make a good party/event theme??

1 – High School Prom: The Selection

Prom is about pretty dresses. The Selection – for all its faults – has very pretty dresses and very pretty color schemes that would make lovely prom decorations.

2 – A Wedding: Harry Potter

I’ve seen too many gorgeous Harry Potter weddings to not mention/pick this.

3 – Summer BBQ: Percy Jackson

Percy Jackson books just give me a very summer-y vibe. Probably because I read most of them at my cousin’s house after swim class all in one summer, but still. They’re fun, family friendly, and have great potential for themed snacks (blue cookies and chips!).

4 – A Kid’s Birthday Party: Roald Dahl Books

Dahl’s books are basically a childhood staple for any reader and I think they’d make great kid’s party themes. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach… All have great decorations and food/snacks inspiration potential. Plus, you can watch a movie to go along with the party!

5 – Homecoming: Inkheart

Every year, Homecoming at my school is book themed (Great Gatsby, Willy Wonka etc.).

So obviously Homecoming gets a bookish theme in here. Personally, I think Inkheart has the potential for lots of great decorations (the book goes through lots of gorgeous settings).
