I'm planning on throwing a premier party and have been looking here and elsewhere online for ideas but could use more. I'm set on drinks and pretty good on food, but could use more. Not sure how many people and how much I'll need thus far. My issue is where to find decorations or what would be good to use. I can't even really find anything online that's not just costumes or Twilight themed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Definitely have the TruBlood bottles possibly in commercial looking cases. I would check screen caps of trueblood HBO for bottle designs. Make sure you serve some Bon Temps BBQ. waitress costumes. some kind of mind reading game. viles of vamp blood (candy) vampire teeth. and season one of TrueBlood.

I like the idea of season 1 of true blood - you can have it just running in the background. If you don't already have it on DVD there are internet sites you can stream. I would also suggest making some kind of drink that looks like blood in the viles.

Sounds like fun!

Well I like the vial idea but where to get them and what to serve in them? i was going to make red jello shots and thought those at first but then realized those might be a pain in a vial like that since they are slightly solidified. I guess maybe red headed s!^*s? I was also going to make a sangria or something to put in this beverage fountain I have. But where can I find these things right now? It's not exactly halloween season. Oh I wish I had thought ofhis sooner. I woud love to hit garage/yard/tags sales but won't have time. Oh well any websites you know of that may help would be great. Thanks in advance.

Why not go mix it up with a swamp/bayou party? I'm hoping all your guests watch or know of the show? The fact it's set in small-town Louisiana could be a great aspect- have loads and loads of moss hanging around, some driftwood, you could wind mini lights around them and cover them with moss. If you can find things like toy alligators, snakes, vultures, or even real animal bones if you've found any to place around. Look through the opening credits for some inspiration.

Also you can get t-shirts for Merlotte's and Fangtasia as well as all sorts of other merch on hbo.com. Download some of the music they use for the closing credits, and the theme song as well. Check out some of the older threads on here about voodoo/swamp themed parties, that would be cool. Good luck!

Invite Marian to the party and have her jiggle around until your all naked and sodomizing a pine tree! Lol! We are actually thinking of offering themed parties like this with our Coffin Rentals.

This thread is the clearest labeled True Blood Party, so I'm going to keep adding party ideas here even though the original poster's event is long over - I'm very likely going to do a TB party next year, so as I come across Ideas I'm going to keep posting them here :)

Today I came across this -
TrueBloodScreencaps
a site that has screen captures from every episode! You can right click and download them, use as decor/invites or just for your own reference - need to build a meat tree? Here's what it looks like! Making an authentic Fangtasia - here's something to go off of. Awesome!
