Book-inspired parties! That’s what is on my mind today. This morning I was working on a project for a client—unfortunately not a plan for a book-inspired party, but it was New Year’s Eve related, so fairly festive. Along the trail of research I had the good fortune to stumble upon the InLiterature.net website. This site has fabulous ideas and information for planning a book-inspired party, everything from recipes to decorations plus crafts and activities for kids’ parties.
The books range from classic literature to favorite children’s stories and everything in between.
Just a few of the books included are:
- A Christmas Carol
- Anna Karenina
- Julie & Julia
- Jurassic Park
- Pride and Prejudice
- Practical Magic
- Sherlock Holmes
- The Hobbit
And of course you can find pages on the site for Harry Potter party ideas.
Do you want to learn how to make a paper mache mandrake? Here you go. InLiterature.net has step-by-step directions.
How about whipping up a batch of Fizzing Whizbees to enjoy at your Harry Potter party? They have a three-ingredient recipe for that too. It looks so easy!
Several years ago I worked at a library and hosted the weekly reading programs for kids. It was a blast! For the preschoolers each week, it was always a program theme relating to our book of the week. I would have loved to have had access to a site like this. Now I’m actually considering a theme party somewhere down the road. But which book to choose?
