4 Steps to a Great Book-Themed Party

Book-themed parties can be a great way to show off your love of reading while having a blast with friends. In order to throw the best literary-inspired get-together, though, you'll need to make sure you have a few key components. Specifically, you'll need the right drinks, food, entertainment, and decor.


If you're throwing a party for adults, incorporating book-themed cocktails is a must. There are plenty of options for literary cocktails available. Many excellent choices are included in Tequila Mockingbird, written by Tim Federle, which offers recipes for dozens of cocktails that would perfectly suit your bookish party. 


Books from all genres offer a ton of great choices for party foods. If you're a fan of The Chronicles of Narnia, you can offer your guests some Turkish delight. Tiny cakes with the words "Eat Me" written in icing would be perfect for fans of Alice in Wonderland. If you're entertaining children, you can combine Rice Krispie treats and modeling chocolate to create book-shaped pops. 


There are some fantastic party games available to include in your bookish gathering. For example, you could play Call My Bluff, in which you pick a word, then write down its definition, along with two other definitions that are incorrect. The object of the game is for the other players to guess the correct definition. The best part about this one is that you only need a dictionary, pencils, and paper.

Or, if you enjoy charades, you could try out the Name in the Hat game, where each player has to guess a character based on clues given by their team leader. Whichever team guesses the most names correctly in one minute is the winner of that round.


The decorations for your party can be the area where you can get the most creative. Depending on the time of year, you could create snowflakes or wreaths from the pages of old books. You could also set up a photo booth with some of your favorite comic book characters. Or, if you're throwing a dinner party, you could create centerpieces out of stacks of books. Also, don't forget some cute invites or placecards in the form of library due-date slips.

A book-themed party is an excellent option for readers of all ages. You can customize it to suit the tastes of both you and your guests, making it memorable and fun for everyone. The best part is, you might come out with a few new books to add to your list.
