I have been a huge fan of the Golden Girls since forever. I would watch it with my parents when I was younger, and continue to do so now. I’ll be the first to argue that it’s still relevant to this day: politics, health care, education, and immigration. It’s timeless really.
Well, right in time for Galentine’s Day – you can celebrate your squad with the OG Gal Pals. That’s right: A Golden Girls themed party!
Oh I do love some good invitations. Rose, Blanche, Dorothy, and Sophia resided in Miami and I wanted to bring that tropical flair to the invitations, especially in snowy Michigan.
Remember – your invitation is the first introduction to your theme. My motto: Go Big. Excite your guests by sharing the theme in any way possible. This is the first impression of your party and you want to make sure the theme is very clear.
You bet your vertubenflugen that I harnessed my inner Rose and Sophia to provide party details. Picture it… Michigan…
Wanting to embrace Miami, I went tropical. Very tropical. From the placements to a “Thank You for Being a Friend” banner – I transformed my Michigan landscape into Miami. This included crepe paper and a special tribute to Stan – with his Dorothy-monkey-traffic cone.
Of course there are DIYs! I made some custom treat bags, Golden Girl wine glasses, and a fun tropical wreath.
For games, we are are fortunate to a resurgence of Golden Girls! We played Clue and Anyway You Slice It – the trivia game.
I used my green screen to create a custom backdrop for my guests. From there, I added the Golden Girl’s kitchen and living room to the background. Once printed – I mailed these as a fond memory for the guests.
The menu is the most important aspect to any party. Hone in on the theme: Sicilian pizza, cheese balls, and cheese cake. Of course – cheese cake.
Here are some of my favorite recipes:
The party was an absolute hit, and I highly recommend embracing your inner Golden Girl to throw this awesome party! It’s great for birthdays, girl weekends, and Galentine’s Day!
Thank you for being a friend!
