How to Throw the Best Willy Wonka Party Ever

Love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Celebrate your love of literature with this Willy Wonka party! Willy Wonka party ideas are perfect for everyone.One of the things I’ve always wanted to do is throw a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory party. I’ve always loved the Willy Wonka movie (the really old one with Gene Wilder), and in fact, I think I actually like the Willy Wonka movie better than the book (but don’t tell Roald Dahl, because apparently he hated it). To inspire myself to actually host this Willy Wonka party, I’ve put together a list of things I would love at my Willy Wonka party.

8 Fun Anne of Green Gables Activities

If you can’t tell by the title of this post, I’ve caught Anne fever once more. Today, it’s all about Anne of Green Gables activities!

With the new story coming out soon, I can’t wait to re-read and revel in a universe that is one of my childhood favorites.

I always considered myself to be just like Anne, and strangely enough, I also married my childhood sweetheart (although I wasn’t quite as stubborn about resisting as she was). This time around, I noticed that Anne very likely had ADHD, just like me and my daughter, which may just be what made me love her so much back in the day.

Today, I’ve rounded up some of the best Anne of Green Gables activities across the interwebs for your enjoyment (but full disclosure, also for mine).

The Ultimate Breaking Bad Anne of Green Gables Mashup (Lit Lovers Link Party)

Please Note: This Breaking Bad Anne of Green Gables mashup is meant to be light-hearted, so please don’t take offense. Anne of Green Gables has been and will always be one of my favorite stories of all time. Scroll to the bottom of the post to link up with this week’s Lit Lovers Link Party!

Breaking Bad producer Moira Walley-Beckett is making the new Anne of Green Gables. This Breaking Bad Anne of Green Gables mashup is what dreams are made of.

By now, if you haven’t heard that Anne of Green Gables is set for a re-boot in Canada in 2017 you probably haven’t been online since November. Of course, true fans will know that Anne was originally 11 in the books, not 13 like the article says, but potatoes potatoes.

For the few of you who might not know, Breaking Bad producer and Canadian-native Moira Walley-Beckett is set to produce the new Anne series. I could not be more excited about this, although she does mention wanting to “chart new territory” to make it more interesting for young viewers, and I’m not sure what that means. In a press release, Ms. Walley-Beckett said,

“Anne’s issues are contemporary issues: feminism, prejudice, bullying and a desire to belong. The stakes are high and her emotional journey is tumultuous.” I could see her making Anne’s story dark, but ultimately, I hope she brings Anne’s hopefulness to forefront of the story, since her eternal optimism made her who she was (that and her ADHD).

Honestly, I cannot wait to see where Anne goes in the new millennium, but it will be nigh-impossible to find a more attractive Gilbert than Jonathan Crombie.

The Ultimate Breaking Bad Anne of Green Gables Mashup

If Ms. Walley-Beckett is feeling overwhelmed by taking on Anne, I am taking a moment to remind her that she doesn’t have to start from scratch. In fact, many of the plotlines and script lines from Breaking Bad can apply to Anne of Green Gables. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself:
