After much debate with my daughter we have decided upon a Gothic Vampire theme for her party, but it really needs a cool name to it..... Any thoughts?

I also need a name for her "club" or dance area. All I have thought of is "Club Blood" but I wanted to make the bar area the "Blood Bar" so that one won't work. Maybe something like "Fangs"? My creative juices are not flowing.

I also wanted to do something with this idea I have for her invitation. I have ordered a ton of tiny perfume tester vials and am going to fill them with fake blood to tie onto the invite but I am at a loss for what to tie them to. Any ideas or input would be much appreciated!!!

Red
The Fang
Dark Water
Pain Palace

Great idea with the bottles. You can punch a hole through the invite and thread a red or black satin ribbon through it, then around the bottle. For an older look, use twine to tie it together. You could also thread the ribbon through the hole and attach a small wooden spike on the other side. Splt tongue depressors in half lengthwise, use an xacto knife to shape it, dip the sharp end in red fingernail polish.

Why not call your club area "The Black Rose" and decorate it with red candles and black flowers? When I was a teenager I read a series of books called "Night World" by L.J.Smith about vampires and other supernatural creatures, and they used black flowers as their symbol - I believe the black rose was a symbol mostly used by vampires, so it would fit your theme? Plus they are quite gothic aesthetically.

If not, how about something like "The Crimson Lounge" and decorate with lots of red velvet drapes and serve red drinks etc?

I'd love to hear more about what the place is going to look like - what kind of 'decor' is the club and bar.

Shadow Club
Vein
Pulse
B Negative
Disco Vamp
Suckers Lounge
Wraith Taproom
Strigoi Club (loosely a Romanian term for vampire)
the Bathouse
Desmodus Rotundus Club (Vampire bat's latin name)

Classic name for a vamp club:
Danse Macabre

Food area could be Lunatic Cafe

Both from Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series.

I just got back home and am stoked by all the awesome ideas! Thanks so much.

I'd love to hear more about what the place is going to look like - what kind of 'decor' is the club and bar.
It's at our home which is Mediterranean and certainly gels well with the goth look - all the wrought iron and all. The house will be renamed Moonlight Manor (a nod to the short lived CBS Vampire series) and the ideas has evolved into 2 club like areas. The first one is a piano lounge vibe with a small stage for the karaoke and around the room small round cocktail tables and chairs. The drapes are red silk so I think black & red with hints of gold for the colors to give it a more old world feel. Lots of candlelight for a classy vampire mood.

The dance club will be blacked out with glow in the dark decor. Think dance club. I have found a rental company that has glow in the dark bartops so I am going to try to get one of those. I have white benches to line the walls for seating. Fog machine, bubble machine, flashing lights, glow sticks and glow jewelry for the guests. I'm going to try to make a sign with the club name using something that will glow.

Hi, looks like some great ideas already! I have a suggestion for invitations, Micheal's carries the Martha Stewart line of crafts and I saw a cute Halloween invitation set with plaster fingers in a box with the party details & invite. I thought it was a cute idea, hope it helps.
