Fifty Shades Darker Movie Party

This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures.

I am so excited for the upcoming movie, Fifty Shades Darker. It is coming out this weekend, just in time for Valentine’s Day! I gathered my girlfriends for a fun “masquerade party” to prepare for the big premiere! I loved coming up with cute ideas to set up a fun table with desserts, red cocktails, chocolate, gift bags, party favors and a great sparkly photo back drop!

I set everything up on a long rectangular table in my front room. A plain black tablecloth with some white serving dishes to display the yummy treats and here it is! Lovely right?

I kept everything in red, black and white colors with a little silver here and there….I got store bought mini bundt-cakes, red velvet cupcakes with a cherry on top, Hershey chocolate kisses and Dove dark chocolate. I found the cutest red heart shaped plates for the table….they were perfect! I wanted to serve something red to drink and made a delicious “Strawberry Sultry Sangria”. I used white moscato wine, a little grenadine to make it red, fresh strawberries and garnished with a strawberry on the glass. For my friends who drink non-alcoholic beverages, I made cherry limeades…they were yummy!

Our fabulous sponsor sent awesome gifts for us including copies of the Fifty Shades Darker movie tie-in book, cosmetic bags with lip gloss, fun masks, comfy sweatshirts, balloons and a cool sparkly back drop for us to take photos!

We had so much fun at the party taking photos, eating chocolate, dessert and drinking our favorite beverage! Be sure to make plans with your girlfriends or your significant other to see the movie in theaters when it opens this weekend. You can buy your tickets now on Fandango:
