It's quite sad, Kylee. I was invited to join the thread on my New Kid in Town post, and did ... and it seemed to be trailing off right about then.
But we will forward with what we have!
So, Suzan, I don't know anything about the practicalities of doing this on a forum, this being the first forum I have ever been part of. But here are my thoughts, if I were planning it as a party;
1. The cake thing has been done. We solve location and nibble issues at the same time if we throw the party in the White Mountain National Forest, which is close to Dartmouth University in Hanover, New Hampshire. They apparently have a lot of bears
It could be a weekend campout party, reminiscent of the movie scenes of the wedding. It also fits well with Edward and Bella's supposed cover of attending Dartmouth, in case unexpected Italian guests show up. Also, I'm beginning to think that perhaps snacks are just not meant to be a part of vampire parties.
2. Decorating sounds like a lot of fun. I vote for silver (for Edward) and blue (for Bella). I know that we tend to use purple for Bella, but that is a movie bit, not in the books, and we need something to show up against the Lex's background color. Music sounds great - I really suck at picking music. But would love to hear your ideas.
3. I double-checked against the Guide and it is their 5th anniversary. How about a wooden carving of a mountain lion, lioness, and cub?
Should we get a mod involved? Boy, doing these intercontinental celebrations with you is fun!
EDIT: Just looked back at the last Christmas party to see how it's been done. I will start working on an invite to post on threads with the assumption that you like the White Mountain National Forest idea. I can do invites well. If we are posting invites on other threads perhaps we should invite others to bring gifts as well?
