Imagining a launch party
At this point, I’m not even sure if they’ll be one. A launch party for Austentatious that is.
I have the sort of personality in which I will daydream about this for months, hoarding all the what-ifs to myself, wondering if I could put everything together and make a spectacular success of it. Well, maybe this is me taking the first step. I’m posting a few pictures…a few possibilities…just in case.
I LOVE the silhouettes and the READ block letters, and the cozy tea party theme! The books are a very nice touch too! [via]
A photo booth would be a blast, particular with this sort of picture frame backdrop, or maybe a manor house (Pemberley anyone…?) with bonnets, mustaches, and mutton chops available for try-on. [via] Given that the book is a modern novel, with snatches of the past, not to mention a cameo by Ms. Austen herself (sort of), a launch would need to balance these elements.
Fairy lights and fabric flowers…or paper flowers…or streamers… There should be something hanging from the ceiling to help with that magical, fairytale feeling. [via]
Cupcakes play a little part in the book (but I can’t find the photo credit)…and cinnamon doughnuts just sound lovely! [via] With the release date being January 31st, I figure hot chocolate will be the perfect accompaniment! [via]
