Party Recap

I hosted a "Cook the Books" potluck dinner for my book club. Each lady had to bring a dish inspired by a book. Everyone was so creative!


Party Highlights

  • What People Ate

    Various dishes inspired by books

  • What People Drank

    Guests could also choose drinks inspired by books. For instance, there was sangria inspired by Shadow of the Wind

  • Desserts

    There were some fun ideas here, including a chocolate pie inspired by The Help!

  • Party Favors

    Gummy worms labeled "For Your Little Bookworms"

  • Activities / Games

    We talked about our book of the month, but there was a quiz on hand and lots of eating!

  • Budget

    Budget was tight, but because of the nature of the party was able to do all the decorations for pretty much nothing. I made a lot of it using torn book pages (I bought a hardcover from the Dollar Tree!)
