Party Planning: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

I’ve been meaning to get back into blogging for some time now and I thought a great place to start would be to share all of the photos from the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before party that I hosted for Alexa and Rachel.  We started planning as soon as the premiere date was announced, going so far as to color coordinate our outfits, desserts, and all of the decor.  I knew I wanted to make cupcakes (which Lara Jean bakes in the film despite Margo suggesting that brownies would be easier).  We also ordered pizza to eat during our viewing and before we started, Rachel was kind enough to french braid Alexa and my hair! I absolutely love how everything turned out and I’m so thankful to have such good friends who are just as enthusiastic about celebrating books as I am<3

Being one of the biggest fans of the book series that immortalized the Song Sisters in my heart, I knew I wanted to go all out.  I can honestly say I have never been so excited for a book to film adaptation before and Netflix did not disappoint.  Lana Condor is a gem and she perfectly captured everything about Lara Jean that I’ve loved for all of these years.  She is so perfectly awkward and a kindred introverted spirit.  (And totally irrelevant to her portrayal, but she’s absolutely gorgeous!) I really want her entire wardrobe and I keep searching to see if anyone has posted about where to them but alas, I haven’t found anything!  I loved the sister moments between LJ, Kitty & Margo, the sweet moments between LJ and Peter K, the BFF moments between LJ and Chris and especially the final Gen scene because ugh that girl needs to move on!  Then there’s Noah Centineo, who played an even better Peter K than the one in my wildest dreams!  I just want to give him a hug.  I also loved John Corbett as Dr. Covey. He added an element of humor that made my heart happy.  I sincerely hope there’s a P.S. I Still Love You film in our future.

And a special thanks to Andrew was very gracious about us bothering him to be our photographer throughout the day!

    OMG I love the party you organized!!!

    Unfortunately I haven’t read the book yet, but I watched the movie on Netflix and I am pretty confident it’s one of the favorites of the year! ❤️ Hope they will film the sequel now.

    This is the cutest little party!! I love how you guys went all out with the snacks, decor, and your color coordinated outfits. The book series was so fun, and the movie adaptation did not disappoint! I think I’ve watched it at least 6 times. Haha! How about you? :) I loved Lana Condor’s take on Lara Jean and I’m so happy Jenny Han fought to have an Asian American actress be cast in the role. ❤️

  3. You really went all out, and it looks AMAZING. I love how you have all the books on display! Lana Condor portrays Lara Jean SO WELL and I’m so happy the adaptation was such a good one. It’s the first time I’ve ever wanted to re-watch a movie right after finishing it! So that’s really saying something.

  4. You guys are too cute!!! I loveddddd the movie too. It was a very true adaptation (besides the fact that they made Kitty 100000 times less brash) & I was happy it kept the true feel of the book. Your cupcakes look so good– and now I’m starving!! I wish I lived in NY so I could do cute things like this w/ you guys!!

  5. Oh wow, that looks like an amazing premiere party! :) You ladies look like you had a lot of fun. I haven’t seen the film yet – I want to read the book first! – but I’ve heard nothing but AMAZING things and the book fans seem really happy… a rarity in a book-to-film situation. I am so SO happy that it was a good adaptation, and those cupcakes look delicious, you did a great job. :)

  6. I am LIVING for these pictures! I am just now reading the books for the first time and have so much love for the Song girls <3 Also, your french braids are amazing, Rachel is seriously skilled!

    AHhhh I love themed parties. We throw parties for newly released games usually!!! Everything looks picture perfect – you did an amazing job!!! Love it!

  8. Oh my goodness I love this idea SO much. I loved the books and I was so happy with how the movie turned out. They did an amazing job with it ♥

    What a charming idea! Those decorations are picture perfect, and the cupcakes look totally scrumptious, even though brownies would have been easier ;) I STILL haven’t read this book, but I did watch the Netflix movie recently, and I loved it.

    I’m so thrilled we decided to have a little viewing party for To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before! It’s such a delightful memory, and I can’t wait to do something similar for the sequel.
