All the awesome ideas I found online for the Twilight parties were mainly centered around the images on the books – apples, chess piece, red, black and white; Red Velvet was the birthday cake of choice. But Bella’s birthday party was all pink, silver, crystal, glass, roses – and the cake was pink. So, I picked up New Moon and read excerpts from the party in Chapter 1 to learn more about the actual events…
“A long line of glowing Japanese lanterns hung from the porch eaves, reflecting a soft radiance on the huge cedars that surrounded the house. Big bowls of flowers – pink roses – lined the wide stairs up to the front doors."
"Alice, I assumed, had covered every flat surface with pink candles and dozens of crystal bowls filled with hundreds of roses. There was a table with a white cloth draped over it next to Edward's grand piano, holding a pink birthday cake, more roses, a stack of glass plates, and a small pile of silver-wrapped presents."
Not only was there a completely different color scheme, there was something interesting that happened at that party… “I landed in the mess of shattered crystal." ...this was going to be fun.
