How to Throw a 90s Theme Party

There really is nothing more fun than theme parties!  We decided to throw a “Pick Your Decade Theme Party” a few weeks ago and wanted to share some of the fun details.

Everyone dressed up in any decade they wanted (made it easier for guests to find costumes) and we had a 1920’s  Gatsby Themed upstairs with a fun and crazy 90’s theme basement.

The 90’s Food: Capri Suns, Ring Pops, Doritos, Teddy Grahams, Rice Krispy Treats covered in Nerds, bagel bites and mini hot dogs. And Vodka Infused Gummy Bears.

The 90’s Decor:  Photobooth, inflatable chairs, poloroid cameras, fringe garland with slinkies and neon everything. And a Stussie beerpong table.

How to Make Easy DIY Fringe Garlands

We threw a “Pick Your Decade Party” theme party a few weeks ago and wanted to create some festive but cheap decor for the basement ’90’s decor. We decided to try our hand at the DIY Fringe Garland we’ve been seeing all over.  Ended up being totally easy, here’s a tutorial on how to make your own.

You’ll need:  Tissue paper, string, scissors, washi tape (optional)

Step 1: Fold tissue paper in half, then half again.  Cut 1/2 inch slits from bottom up, leaving about 1 inch at top where it is folded

Step 2:  Unfold the sheet completely. Beginning at one side start to roll tightly so there is so so the 1 inch fold is in the middle and cut strips on each side.

Step 3: Fold in half and twist together at the top.  We wrapped a strip of washi tape around it to help it stay and add a little polish, but they stay just fine without it.

Step 4:  Per garland, we recommend making 7-10 fringes.  String together through the loop you created on the top of each.  Play around with different colors and combinations. We cut up a cheap silver hanging door curtain to make silver accents and also used some mini slinkies since he had a ’90s theme.
