Clueless was definitely one of those movies that defined the era. When I think of the 1990’s, the movie Clueless is one of the things that comes to mind. It definitely had a huge impact on my 90’s! From the incredible quotes to the clothes, this movie is everything. If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for?? (But seriously, it’s on Netflix right now. Canadian AND American, so go watch it now!!) It was pretty obvious that this would be the best co-theme for my 90’s party. Plus, do we really need an excuse to dress a little like Cher Horowitz? I don’t think so!
Here are some of the ways I made my party like totally Clueless/90’s:
First of all, there are no fancy-schmancy smart phones in the 1990’s. So everyone had to leave their fancy non-flip phones in the basket and experience the 90’s as they really were. Beepers were totally allowed though.
For the food, I had to have food from the movie! There is a line (pictured above) that basically described the way I ate when I was in high school, so I got some of the best foods from the list. Cher is so funny, she eats like a chipmunk but thinks she’s a heifer. So silly!
These were my two themed drinks. I had to use the ultra mean quote “You’re a virgin who can’t drive” to describe my non-alcoholic beverage. And when Cher describes Amber as being a “full-on Monet”, that was just too memorable a line to ignore. And mojitos are amazing 😉
I recently had my thrift store dreams come true when I found a copy of Dream Phone in Burlington, Ontario at Value Village. It was one of the top moments of my entire life. So of course we had to play the best 90’s teen girl game at the 90’s party! I think people had fun playing this blast from the past game.
I really like giving out little goodie bags or a little something to my guests when they’re leaving (if I can remember to actually do it). This year it was the little feathery pens, similar to the one that Cher has in the movie. If any of my friends missed snagging one and still wants it, just let me know! I still have them.
For total authenticity, the only music we could listen to had to be from the 90’s, and it had to be on CD. I had a number of CD’s of bands who started in the 90’s, but the CD was from the 2000’s, and those were NOT played. I was trying to keep it real. 😉
And I definitely had to play the Clueless soundtrack, duh!
The “dress code” of the party was 90’s attire, and it ended up being pretty plaid. But here’s me and my best girlfriend, Melanie and I showing off our best 90’s inspired outfits.
Hope you enjoyed my little trip back to the 1990’s. It was also really fun to come back to 2015 and be able to use Instagram though 😉
