Giveaway & Party Idea: Safe Haven (BuRay)

You might remember that last summer I was fortunate enough to be invited to visit the Safe Haven movie set. In February, I wrote about my day on the set and also included a writeup of what author Nicholas Sparks had to say about the process of turning a novel into a film.

Although I went to see the film the first week appeared in the theaters, I have been anxiously awaiting the DVD / BluRay release so I can watch the parade scene very carefully to see if I might have made the cut. I couldn't tell on the big screen. Fortunately, my wait is over because the BluRay edition will be released for sale tomorrow!

Here's the synopsis of the film, just in case you don't know yet:

Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough star in this spellbinding romantic drama based on the novel by best-selling author Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook). When a mysterious, beautiful woman named Katie (Hough), moves to Southport, North Carolina, she sparks the interest of the locals, especially Alex (Duhamel), a handsome widower. Although she is attracted to Alex, Katie is reluctant to trust him–that is, until a new friend (Cobie Smulders) convinces her to give Alex a chance. But before long, a dark secret from Katie’s past threatens her happiness in this thrilling romance directed by Lasse Hallström (Dear John).
Once you get your copy, why not invite some friends over to watch it with you. Thanks to Think Jam, you can turn your movie night into a fun-filled "Women's Night In" by taking advantage of the following food and drink suggestions. Although Southport, North Carolina, is known for its seafood, you can serve some of the "land food" if that suits you better.
Appetizers and Finger Foods
  • Crab cakes
  • Seafood chowder
  • Fried Shrimp with cayenne aioli
  • Crab dip
  • Sugarcane skewered scallops
Non-Seafood Ideas
  • Pimento cheese
  • Deviled eggs
  • Fried chicken
  • Cheese straws
  • Vidalia onion tart
  • Tomato pie
  • Bourbon punch
  • Mint julep
  • The Ramos gin fizz
  • Lavendar and peach bellini
I'm not quite sure what I'd serve, but I think crab dip, deviled eggs, cheese straws, and mint juleps might make for a nice and easy southern-themed evening.

The Giveaway: Thanks to Think Jam and Twentieth Century Home Entertainment, I can offer one of my readers his or her very own copy of the BluRay edition of Safe Haven. But no promises that you'll see me in it! All you need to do to enter for a chance to win is to have a U.S. mailing address and to fill out the form. I'll pick a winner on May 15 using a random number generator. Once the winner has been confirmed, I'll delete all personal information. Good luck!
