Party It Up: A Gallagher Girls Gala!

Planning your own Gallagher Girls book group get-together? Here are some party ideas from featured author Ally Carter.

Invite: Send a coded message via covert means. (This invitation will self-destruct in three...two...)

Décor: Plaid, crests, swords, and cut-out letters

Food: Peanut M&Ms, "drugged" apples, crème Brule, and, of course, Evapopaper (perhaps phyllo dough could be used in such a way)

Movies & TV Shows: Alias, the Bourne movies, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Craft: Make a hair bow out of coordinating plaids; create a super secret book cover to hide your covert texts; hollow out an old lipstick tube or some other innocuous-looking container to form a secret carrying device; make a holder for all that dangerous/killer spaghetti.

Don't forget Veronica Mars!

Veronica Mars would rock as a Gallagher Girl, graduated years ago and back as a mentor or on a special mission.

BtVS Season Three was my favorite.

Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) on USA Network's new TV series Covert Affairs also could have been a Gallagher Girl. Oh, gracious, can you imagine Auggie at Blackthorne?

This is a totally fun party. Very.

What's your favorite color of M&Ms?
