How to host a Book of Life party! #BOLinsiders @FHEinsiders #BookOfLife


THE BOOK OF LIFE is a breathtaking animated comedy with a dazzling visual style unlike anything you’ve seen before. Torn between the expectations of his family and the desires of his heart, a young man named Manolo sets off on an epic quest that spans three spectacular worlds in order to reunite with his one true love and defend his village. Not your ordinary fairy tale, THE BOOK OF LIFE is a wondrous fantasy-adventure filled with magic, music and fun!

THE BOOK OF LIFE Blu-ray™ brings culture and comedy into your home with unforgettable special features for parents and kids alike. Continue the fun with an all-new bonus short “The Adventures of Chuy”, highlighting the film’s lovable scene-stealing pet pig. Additionally, relive the musical hits from the film with the “Music Machine” featuring Latin-inspired versions of popular songs by Mumford & Sons, Radiohead, Elvis Presley, Rod Stewart and more!

The Book of Like is an inspirational family story and is a great way to get the conversation started with the kids!  Not only that, this is the perfect time to sit down with kids and discuss what you would like to achieve in the New Year! Here are some recipe cards and a New Year's resolution checklist to get you started:



So this Friday night we are hosting a Book of Life party! My daughter is having a couple friends over to spend the night and watch the film.  We will eat, do crafts, list out our New Years Resolutions and watch the movie!  To get ready for the party I got a little crafty.  Take a look at my Pinterest board to get some inspiration for your own party!

First up I started with making skull garland.   I took colored tissue paper (four sheets at a time) and placed a skull template on top of it.  Then I did another four skulls.  Next up, you take a long piece of masking tape, I placed the top of each skull on the edge, once they all were in place, just fold over the tape.



 A fun and easy decoration for the table is Book of Life themed lanterns.   I took plastic cups and busted out the permanent markers and got creative.  You really can't go wrong, just make a fun designed skull.  Once it is done, place a battery operated tea light under it and instant candle!


There will also be crafts and more that night...  I will share more in my post party post this weekend!  Here is a teaser to the craft:
