As promised, here are my pictures from my Sunday viewing party of True Blood.

IMG_4645Lots of romantic, vampy mood lighting. I used all different kinds of red and white candles.

In this picture, I filled red (food dye) water into a vase with floating votive candles

I placed some of the candles on top of a mirror. Mirrors always enhance a tablescape!

~Menu~

Chocolate Covered Strawberries and lots of them

(You could also dip them in chocolate and them drizzle them with white chocolate and add some red food coloring)

Cupcakes with Fake Blood

IMG_4639IMG_4687

An easy, delicious fake blood recipe

Great for decorating cupcakes or when you’re trying to gross someone out

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate powder
  • Corn Starch
  • Red food coloring

Directions

Mix chocolate powder, corn starch, and a little cold water together. Stir until smooth. Add a generous amount of red food coloring. Stir again. Then top off with boiling hot water to enhance the texture.

Splatter it around for a gory, delicious mess. Feel free to spill it all over you because it just tastes chocolaty!

~Drinks~

  • Splash simple syrup (equal amounts sugar and water heated until sugar dissolves, then cooled)

  • Shirley Temples

No recipe required (Grenadine, soda, and maraschino cherries).

I prefer Sprite other Ginger Ale, but always, always, extra cherries. What can I say? I’m a Bombshell, I love excess.

Dripping BloodIMG_4647

The “blood rim” is made from the same kind of mixture as you’d use to make hard candy. It’s actually pretty easy, but you will need a candy thermometer (which you can find at most grocery stores).

Ingredients:
1 c. Sugar
1/2 c. Karo Syrup
1/2 c. Water
Red Food Coloring
Cinnamon (optional)

Directions:
Combine sugar, syrup and water. Cook without stirring to hard crack stage – which is 300 degrees F. Add food coloring. (Optional: Cinnamon may be added for flavor.)

Turn off heat. While the mixture is still hot, dunk the top of the cocktail glass into the mixture to create the red rim. If you need to do several glasses, keep the mixture hot so it lasts longer (instead of turning heat off, just reduce slightly).You can go anywhere from just along the very tip of the rim to part way down the glass – whichever you prefer. Flip the glass right side up to cool. The thick consistency of the mixture will cause “drips” as it hardens on the glass!

~Some more party ideas~

Create napkin rings from glow in the dark plastic fangs… and have more sets of fangs available for photo ops!

Drizzle bowls of popcorn with butter that’s been colored red.

Set up a creative, themed black & red candy buffet…mixed in with “bloody” candy accents and clever details from the movie.

 

Must have accessory of the season!?

An ideal party for a Bombshell involves risque clothing, flirty companions, mouth watering appetizers, and potential for a little mischievousness. Can you say pajama party? This works for anybody looking for a bordello-inspired, sexy event. Get inspired!


Excuses to throw a lingerie/pajama party:

  • Bridal Shower
  • Engagement Party (for a racy couple)
  • Valentine’s Day
  • Singles Party
  • Viewing Party: Screening a fashionable movie or TV Marathon aka Sex and the City night
  • My personal favorite: Grown up Sleepover
Start with either a pink-and-gold OR a purple-and-platinum decor; add festive food and luscious libations to inspire gal-pal revelry, and you’ve got a look that’s romantic, but not schmaltzy.

She sprinkled some little plastic hearts from a craft store, pink caramel kisses, a strand of pearls and a few rose votives. She put it on top of mirror (genius!) along with a vase full of supermarket (no need to break the bank!) roses.

Tabletops: Make a cozy dining space around the coffee table, set up extra seating , including floor pillows, if necessary. Decorate with rose-filled glass bowls (Float roses in glass or silver pedestal bowls) , masses of rose-colored votives, and red and fuchsia hanging lanterns. Scatter roses or orchid blossoms and votive lights around bowls. Arrange low glass or silver/gold vases with orchid stems on coffee and side tables and on the dining table buffet.

Scatter rose petals all around the place!
Madame Sera’s take on lingerie party…
‘A PAJAMA PARTY ‘ AT THE CUCKOO CLUB, SWALLOW ST, LONDON


The club was turned into the hottest bedroom in town! Madame Sera displayed four poster beds in the club that were draped in fuchsia pink silks. The entire space was lit with red and pink Rude lacey lampshades which were the back drop for pink velvet beds that were strewn with plump cushions and saucy feathers that were used to tickle ones fancy.

A selection of Madame Sera’s Foxy Cushions
Plump and blousy, made up of exquisite fabrics and textiles. These Cherries form the basis of every truly chic and exotic room.
A lair of pillows
Note Madame Sera’s Rude Lampshades in the background.
Madame Sera strung long fuchsia feathers from the chandeliers and ceilings.
Lots and lots of balloons! The more the better. When you do something so obviously party-like, best to push the limits. Imagine wading through those! That reminds of the fight scene in the Sex and the Movie when Carrie and Miranda go on their singles Valentine’s Day dinner. Then the secrets drop…
There were pillow fights by naughty, show off type London girls (in peach satin boxer shorts and teeny weenie brassieres that made all busts heave and jiggle with the lack of fabric!)
Please note these are direct quotes from her website, this is not MY commentary. hehehe
Luckily, Madame Sera thought that the ‘pillow fights’ were highly likely and saucily stuffed all the pillows with fuchsia pink feathers beforehand!!!
The Menu:
Baked Brie with Pears and Raspberries
Bowls of popcorn, yogurt-covered raisins, and white-chocoalte covered pretzels
Smoked Salmon and Caviar on Lemon Toasts
Shrimp cocktails
Mini burgers (Meat and Veggie)

The key to a spirited party like this is to splurge on the drinks!
Drinks of Choice: Pink Champagne, Rose, Prosecco

Veuve Clicquot Rose
Non-alcoholic Beverages
Raspberry Ginger Ale (LOVE THIS!)

~Watermelon Lemonade~
(Serves 8)
In a tight-sealing pitcher, combine 3 cups of water and fresh lemon juice with 1 cup sugar and 4 cups seeded and pureed fresh watermelon; mix well. Chill thoroughly. Serve over ice, garnished with lemon wheels and mint sprigs.

Desserts
Macaroons, tropical fruit platter

Bombshell Party Must-Have: Chocolate
A lingerie party is for women, after all, and there are few things women love more than chocolate. Why not make it with chocolate fondue? A true bombshell knows that fondue is an underrated, sensual foodie adventure. Plus, its so easy! All that passionate sharing of finger foods, luscious fruits and creamy milk chocolate equals bombshell decadence.

Fondue
1 cup heavy cream
8 oz. semisweet or milk chocolate chips (preferably melting chocolate)
1) In a small saucepan, warm cream over low heat. Add in chocolate chips, and stir constantly until completely melted and smooth.
2) Then pour into fondue pot or heaving serving dish and serve immediately.
*Also Try:
Peanut and Chocolate
Follow the recipe, above, and then stir in 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter after chocolate melts!

~What to Dip~
Crispy cookies or biscotti
Fresh fruit such as bananas, berries, or pineapples
Marshmallows
Angel Food Cake
Brownies
Music Playlist
Bombshell Favorites
Peggy Lee, “Fever”
Blossom Dearie, ‘I Won’t Dance”
Cachao, “Mambo”
When things are heating up:
(Some may sound cheesy, but it is scientifically proven that people tend to dance spicier when these tunes come on) – Christina Aguileria (the Dirty years), Nelly, Latin/Salsa inspired music, Dirty Stop Out (sexy rock n’roll band) and anything on the Moulin Rouge Soundtrack.

When things are winding down:
Paolo Nutini

What to Wear:
Lingerie of course! Anything satiny, lacy, and ultra luxurious.

Silky slips with bright colored stockings. I have the fuchsia stay-ups from Agent Provocateur. They work wonders!
Agent Provocateur Classic Red Corset
Silk men’s pajamas work as well.
These sexy ‘ready for bed’ pyjamas are essential for every boudoir seduction ritual or lingerie party.
Don’t forget the accessories!
Agent Provocateur’s Crystal tipped Whip!
Activities:
Dance Off – Soul Train with a racy twist
I’ve Never…
Strip Poker – Winner Takes All!

And of course…PILLOW FIGHTS!
Take a cue from The Girls Next Door (Bridget, Kendra, and Holly) and engage in some harmless pillow fighting.
