This year, for the Breaking Dawn 2 movie premiere–because we had a pre-midnight (9:00pm) showing–the “studio” wouldn’t allow us to promote our event in any social media outlet what-so-ever. That meant, no posting on Facebook, or Twitter, or babbling about it on Gracious Rain…my own blog. I have say, that was a big, huge, drag–because, as you can imagine, at least half the fun is showing you what we’re doing–as it’s happening. It’s so much fun to share every second with my friends–you guys, and when they told me I’d have to keep it quiet….
well, for a select few of us, that’s nearly impossible.
So, here at long last, are the contents of our Magical Goodie Bags. Are you ready?
As every Twilight fan knows–vampires don’t actually have fangs. But for the sake of the party bags, we had to take advantage of any vampire themed do-dads that we could, so Fang Candy was a great find.
And how could we resist Vampire Whoop Whistles? We couldn’t.
Glow-in-the-dark Biting Fangs–my personal favorite. We walk around with these things in our mouths for weeks. Nothing beats having a 4 year old grin at you with vampire fangs. :I
If you’ve read the Twilight books, you know that one of the Vampire Covens that comes to help the Cullen family is from Ireland. To represent them in our Goodie Bags, we made a Celtic Knot bracelet for everyone.
For the Amazon Coven we thought tropical fruity candy would be funny. Not exactly Amazon…but we tried.
The sweet little Werewolf and Vampire boxes hold a tiny snowflake Christmas ornament from the Denali Coven in Alaska.
Naturally…NATURALLY we needed Werewolf hair cotton candy. The very idea is positively hideous in such a fun way that we had to have it.
We made 200 Scarab Necklaces from the Egyptian Coven.
So. Much. Fun.
The Yes Utah Organ Donation Group gave us pens and chapstick…to keep those Vampire lips from getting weathered. heh, heh.
As you may recognize our favorite movie prize from our friends at WeeKnit. This time Jenny made us an adorable “Vampire Bella” finger puppet, complete with her torn up blue dress and white, sparkly skin. Perfect!
The last little trinket is a goofy Fang Bracelet kit, but since it was in pieces, that proved to be the best gift from the Volturi…cause, you know, they like to…ahem…tear things up.
A wonderful treat bag, good friends and an incredible movie with a totally fabulous surprise ending.
I’m not kidding. I screamed…
The very best Twilight yet. :} :I :}
PS~ We’ll be making a Gracious Rain Event Page soon so that we can communicate with anyone who would like to know about our events. So watch for that coming soon!

Best. Movie. Ever! So much fun! Now I will be going through withdraws until the movie comes out on DVD. Stephanie Meyer needs to get busy on writing books about their happily ever afters. Like…NOW!!!
Loved this movie! I gasped and screamed a couple times too. Wow. It was CRAZY awesome! I loved it! I can’t wait to see it again. Great job on the goody bags. I LOVE bracelets so I can’t wait to put my Irish Coven gift to good use. I’m still laughing about the PIECES of vampire from The Volturi; so freaking hilarious! Great job! I’m glad I have such a yellow Mom… it means there’s always something fun to look forward to! *:D*
Even though I couldn’t be with you for this event of all events, I wanted to let you know how much fun it was for me to read about all the excitement and imagine it =D I was having a crappy day but NO MORE! How could I feel sad when reading about so much … “all this” (I just gestured at all of you! what movie is that from?)
I especially loved the quote at the end. I needed that. Yes, you are so right! I will try that ^_^Thanks Launi, for being a bright freaking ray of sunshine in my life, always…
I think Beanie thinks he’s in the perfect camo because he’s the same color as the bags. You’d better break it to him slowly… I can still see him 🙂
As always — it looks like crazy fun!
I wanted to be there with you but I did see it on Saturday with both my sisters, and one brother-in-law who was actually the one to demand we go see it opening weekend.
