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.
