Rosemary's Baby Party

Updated on September 21, 2015

Welcome to the Bram

If you're a HUGE fan of Roman Polanski's 1968 film Rosemary's Baby and an even BIGGER fan of the book by Ira Levin, you are going to LOVE the idea of throwing a Rosemary's Baby themed party! Even if you're just a fan of the 60's and you want to have a 60's theme party, these plans have got you covered.

The Menu

One of the cool things about this movie/book is that they eat a lot of food, so you already have the menu set up for you. Here are some ideas to plan the menu for your Rosemary's Baby Party:

Chicken salad sandwiches on black bread with Bloody Marys. At the beginning of the book, Guy and Rosemary go to the Russian Tea Room and order chicken salad sandwiches on black bread and Bloody Marys (clever). If you don't know how to make chicken salad or Bloody Marys here are a few links to help you out:

Chicken salad < click

Bloody Mary < click

Swordfish steaks, stuffed mushrooms, salad, and chocolate mouse (mousse). This is the meal that Guy and Rosemary share together on baby making night (scary baby making night!)

Here is a recipe for chocolate mousse because, what Rosemary's Baby party would be complete without it?

Steak, peas, mashed potatoes, boston cream pie, and vodka blushes. This is the meal that Guy and Rosemary share with Minnie and Roman in Minnie and Roman's apartment.The vodka blushes are a must! Ira Levin invented the drink himself when he was writing the book. Vodka blush recipe:

2-3 oz. Vodka

A squeeze of lime

A dash of grenadine syrup

Caution: these drinks are strong. Adjust as necessary!

Chupe. Chupe is the dish that Rosemary prepares for the party for her friends (where Mini and Roman are not invited). It's a type of Chilean seafood casserole, as described by Levin. Try chupe for yourself here.

The Decor

Throwing a Rosemary's Baby party is easy in the decorating department. Decorate the space with roses and vintage items. Keep plants and herbs hanging around and if you can, a shag carpet would be great! Rosemary really seemed to like yellow, so you can't go wrong with that color.

Keep some Gargoyles in the corners to capture the essence of Black Bramford or place some black candles on a shelf (during a black-out Minnie and Roman brought black candles to Guy and Rosemary, something that made Hutch highly suspicious)

The Soundtrack

Choosing the soundtrack for your Rosemary's Baby party is probably the easiest part of all. You can play Fur Elise on loop (it plays several times during the movie) or you can use the Official Movie Soundtrack if you want to feel like you have dived right into the film.

The Attire

Any 60's attire is perfect for your Rosemary's Baby party, but Rosemary always wore straight, short dresses in the film. Hand out filigree ball necklaces as a party favor and get your hands on some Detchema so that you can smell like Rosemary Woodhouse (it has a fantastic floral scent not unlike Chanel no. 5)

Activities

So what do you do at a Rosemary's Baby party besides drink vodka blushes? Anything you want, really, but here are a few ideas straight from the movie and book:

Play Scrabble - Scrabble is something that they do a lot in Rosemary's Baby. You could do this with your friends or set up your scrabble board as another decoration.

Play the Recorder - Maybe doing a full on satanic ritual would be strange, but if you know someone who can play the recorder, make sure they bring it to the party!

Watch Rosemary's Baby - This one is a no-brainer, but it had to be mentioned

Have an Old Fashioned Dinner Party - Throw an old fashioned classy party and just talk. There are tons of ways to make your party creepier for Halloween (think devil babies) or keep your party a little more low key for a fun flashback to the 60's.

Have Fun

This is an amazing movie and an even more amazing book! Roman Polanski's film has been known as one of the scariest movies of all time for decades. Have fun revisiting the 60's through this AWESOME story! If you have any other suggestions, please leave a comment!

P.S. If you haven't read the book, you can get it here!
