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]

  1. Haha, I totally understand that personality because I have it myself! Good for you! It means that you are well organised and will put on a good party!

    (Just one comment – it’s hard to read the security question against the colour of the background.)

      I would say I’m well organized, Allie. But as pertains to entertaining…I get a little frazzled. I’ll hope for the best. (And I’ll see what I can do about the security question–thanks!)

  2. Oooooh, I hope you have a launch party just like this, and I want to come and try one of those cinnamon donuts w/ hot chocolate!

      Eve, the temperature is making me crave crisp fall days. And doughnuts with cocoa! Consider yourself invited!

  3. Awesome. :)
