Want to throw a MATCHED themed party for a book club, library, birthday party or a Crossed book release party? Here are some great ideas to help plan the perfect party!
The official MATCHED site has a great new party guide here
For a Matched party you can plan the event as casual or elaborate as you see fit for your group. You could come up with a theme such as turning your party into a Match Banquet, or just have something more low key.
In keeping with a MATCHED theme you could decorate with a green theme. If you are hosting a Crossed book release party you can use the brilliant blue from the cover, or use both! Tablecloths, napkins, plates, balloons, streamers can give your party space a Matched aura.
Get out your crafty side and have fun with these! You can make invitations that make the guest feel like they would be attending a real Match Banquet, or make it less formal and just use a color scheme similar to the books.
You can use rubber stamps, ribbons, stickers, glitter, anything!
There are a couple of MATCHED themed games you can have to give your guests a chance to win prizes
In the Society, food is prepared by nutrition specialists and sent in foilware containers via a nutrition vehicle which delivers food to the citizens. For your party you can try a couple of different ways of presenting food in a Matched way!
Do you want to do something more? Like Cassia had in the book, you could make a pill box container with the book cover image on the front! This is a fun DIY project that you can do before the party, or even have guests make their own at the party. You can buy a pillbox like the one we used above in a quantity of one, five or ten. To make these, you just need to print the image that you like, adhere the epoxy sticker to the top of the image, then use a craft glue to glue the image to the top of the pillbox. Once it is dry you can fill it with red, green and blue candies to symbolize the pills.
Stay tuned to hear how you can win the pill container and rubber stamp listed above!
