It’s that time of year again! Time to let-loose and party like it’s 1999. Or something… It’s our annual members-only holiday party! Please take a moment to fill out this RSVP form so we know how many people to expect and what they are bringing!
The 90s may have been a literal century ago – just kidding, it’s only been TWENTY TO THIRTY YEARS – but that doesn’t mean they didn’t know how to party.
We’re going to see how we go about recreating these legendary bashes or just giving your party a retro, 90s feel. From attire to music and food, everything needs to be 90s-fied to perfection.
The preparations start earlier than you think – before you send out the invitations. Not any boring old invitation will do, you gotta make it themed, you can also use this for a white tablecloth bulk so all the tables are themed too.
Have you considered sending a really cheesy e-vite?
Dig out your ancient Hotmail address or AOL (LOL) and write the cringiest email you can muster, complete with plenty of old-timey smiles and text speak.
This is where the REAL fun begins. There’s nothing more fun than decorating for parties, so this should be a piece of cake. Essentially, what you need to do is make sure your house looks like the 90s threw up all over it. Shouldn’t be too hard.
Alternatively, you can send an honest to god paper invite (you’re the reason our forests are dying, btw) and go to town on the arts & crafts.
If you’re lazy and/or talentless like me, you can take the piss and just create a horribly awkward image in Microsoft Paint or something (use Word Art for maximum 90s-ness), complete with colorful balloons and some godawful borders. Make sure to print it on a printer that’s low on ink so you can get that D+ quality and white lines going through it.
If you want to put in a bit more effort, feel free to make them by hand, and write out lyrics to Backstreet Boys songs or something.
OK, so after I filled out my RSVP, I read the results and I see that nobody so far has signed up to bring non-dessert or silverware. So Mike and I will bring plastic knives, or perhaps chopsticks, and something to eat that is not predominantly made of sugar.
