If you’re a fan of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and want to host a viewing party when it comes out on Netflix on August 17th, here are all my best ideas for throwing a premier party!
If you follow me at all on Instagram Stories, you know I’m basically obsessed with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
I can’t tell you how many messages I get every. single. day from people who have read them because I won’t shut about them and then fell in love with the series too. And those messages make my day.
So of course I’ve been closely watching all the details about the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie that’s coming to Netflix on August 17th.
If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, you probably better watch it immediately.
I had big plans for throwing a viewing party on August 17th, but thanks to our move, I’m very dubious that I can make it happen. I’ll probably be watching it home alone, with a big pack of Pokky Sticks. It’s probably what Lara Jean would want, anyway.
BUT, even if I can’t throw my own party, you know I can’t resist telling you all the ideas I had for throwing a To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before party.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie viewing party
Chocolate Chip Cookies. This is a given (even though it’s more in the third book). I kind of would want people to bring their best chocolate chip cookies and have a taste test.
Fruitcake Cookies. I mean, I don’t really want to EAT fruitcake cookies, but there would need to be at least one plate of them. Make Peter proud.
Pocky Sticks. These are the perfect treat for munching on while you’re watching (actually, one of my dear friends bought me a massive box of these from Costco after she read the books. It was the best thing anyone has ever done for me).
Korean Yogurt Drinks. You can order these online if your local store doesn’t carry them.
Sugar Donuts. They might not be warm and they might not be mocha sugar, but I’ll still eat them.
Pizza. But guaranteed, no one will take the last piece.
Cupcakes. Only if they are frosted by someone who has earned the right to frost them.
Frozen Yogurt. Peter wouldn’t pay for it, of course.
Happily, with a viewing party, you don’t actually need a lot of activities, but if you want to extend the party. . .
Hair Braiding. Make Kitty proud.
Cupcake decorating. Then you don’t have to do it beforehand!
Nail painting. Plenty of time to let them dry while you watch.
Probably you wouldn’t do swag bags for a regular non-sponsored party, but I loved thinking of items that would go in them. Or if you wanted, they’d make fun raffle prizes or prizes for the best cookies. In my dream world, each of the swag bags would actually be a small hat box.
Chocolate Chips. A bag of great chocolate chips, like Guittard or Ghiradelli or Scharffen Berger.
Coconut Shampoo. Obviously.
Korean Face Masks. Gogo would approve, especially because they’re only $3 each.
Stationary. Because how else will you write love letter you never intend to send?
Cute printed socks. Bonus points if you wear them DURING the movie.
Writing all this out has made me want to somehow make one happen in Utah, but if I can’t, and you happen to be in Utah and throw one, definitely invite me.
My Pokky Sticks and I will be happy to attend.
I had no idea this amazing series was coming to Netflix! This makes me so happy!
Didn’t know it was coming to Netflix, either! Loved that series so much!!

Um, this sounds like a dream come true. I don’t know anyone but you who has read them, so if you do host one in Utah, let me know!
Dee Mortison says
Umm, help me remember where in the book do we hear about pocky sticks??
Janssen Bradshaw says
It’s one of the snacks she takes on the bus for the ski trip!
