“I wanna do bad things with you!”. Hands down, True Blood is one of my faviroate shows! What’s not to love? Vampires, Warewolves, Witches, Fairies with a Southern Flair.
I decided to have my close friends over to celebrate my birthday Bon Temps style. When it came to the food, it no cooking was definatley the way to go. I wanted to have time to enjoy the party with my sweet friends instead of worry about how the food was going to turn out. Since food trucks are all the rage in Atlanta and the rest of the country, I knew that the Good Food Truck would be perfect!

Seriously, look at that truck! Not only is it red {which is one of the colors of the party} but their logo is beyond cute. Seriously cute!!! The Good Food truck rocked the food. Hands down the yummest food truck I’ve had a chance to taste. My guests dined on The Poodle (a hotdog or soydog with apple topping, spicy brown mustard & maple syrup on a french toast bun), The Curry Cone & a Chutney grilled cheese. YUM!!! So I started at the Chutney grilled cheese and worked my way up to The Poodle. I absolutley LOVED it and my guests were in food truck heaven. The Poodle, hands down, is the best thing I’ve tasted in a long time!


Of Course, I had to jazz up the food truck with a little Bon Temps style. I made a little chalkboard food sign out of a Target Halloween platter & chalkboard spray paint. It was easy peasy and looks fang-tastic!!! The cutlery, from the Sucre Shop, is the cutest thing ever. I love stamped wooden cutlery. It’s SUCH a cute way to dress up your party because you can match them to your theme. In this case, I had beautiful little black chevron bags (from Waiting on Martha) so the Sucre shop created these beautiful red chevron forks & knives. Add a little paint (aka blood) to the mini black chevron bags and a Vampire printable from Frog Prince Paperie and there ya go! It’s a cute little way to serve your cutlery.


Okay – back to the party details!!! After dinner, my guests moved inside and hung out at Merlottes Bar & Grill. Okay maybe it’s not Merlottes but I dressed up our bar (yes, we have a full size bar in our house) to look like it.


We stocked  the bar with fall beers, red wine, Gran’s lemonade, viking glamour shots, bloodtini’s and True Blood!  My favorite thing was the Viking glamour shots. I used strawberry jello with whipped cream vodka – wowsa, it was delicious.


I am a huge candy addict so I made a little mini candy table for my sweet guests. A garland with bloody glittered stakes hung over my small little candy display. Each guest went home with the Blood of Lilith, aka cherry jelly bellies in a test tube, bloody lollipops (by Vintage Confections), a little bit of Talbot and some fangs.


I giggle every time I see the “Hello my name is Talbot” picture. If you are a True Blood watcher, you will totally understand the reference. I just love the printable collection by Frog Prince Paperie! It’s genius and I just love it.


The Fang-tastic dessert table included beautiful cakes by My Sweet Things & amazing fondant toppers by Lynlee's Petite Cakes! I just love the Vampire Authority necklace so Lynlee created a huge topper that went on the center cake. So beautiful! 
Other sweet treats on the dessert table included “Blood” panna cotta, “Deader than Dirt” Oreo cups, macarons, cupcakes and “Compton Cheesecakes” with salted caramel sauce and raspberry topping.
