Are you a 90s kid who remembers the good old days of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and Lion King valentines? Did you love trading conversation hearts with your BFFs and maybe even your crush?
There are some holidays that the 90s had just right, and if you’re craving a nostalgic return to the decade, then there isn’t a better time to celebrate than your upcoming Galentine’s Day party.
Here’s how you can create the ideal 90s theme for your Galentine’s Day party.
To set the mood, create your own 90s inspired playlist with music from the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, Celine Dion, etc. If you want to go all out, you could even make it on a CD or mixtape (provided you have somewhere to play it) because we all remember how big a part those played in the 90s.
While the music will be best if it’s tailored to the party guests, here’s a link to a90s Valentine’s Day mix if you’re crunched for time.
What’s a holiday party without a gift exchange? Some people love to spice up their party with a White Elephant Gift Exchange or a “Secret Sister” swap. If you go this route, make it all 90s themed gifts. Here are some examples:
If you don’t want the gift exchange to be the main event at your Galentine’s Day party, then you may consider just ordering Small Packages for everyone (or using them as your prize for the costume contest in #5!). These boxes have a 90s nostalgia theme that’s perfect for your Galentine’s Day party.
Simply add a personalized note, we’ll hand write it and take care of all the rest so that she's sure to feel celebrated and loved this Galentine's Day! Whether you've been friends for 2 weeks or 20 years, celebrate as though you're a kid again.
In the 90s, Pinterest didn’t exist, so don’t get too fancy with the food! If there’s one thing you need at your Galentine’s Day party, it’s conversation hearts and “Be My Valentine” Little Debbie cakes.
You could also consider making the party a potluck. Have everyone make one food item that they grew up eating in the 90s on Valentine’s Day. Some people may make/bring heart-shaped pancakes, pizza, cookies, etc. The possibilities are endless!
90s TV? Iconic. Have everyone come to your Galentine’s Day party dressed as their favorite show. Here are some ideas of 90s shows to dress up as. The best costume gets a prize!
These rich and creamy red velvet cupcakes are the perfect festive treat, whether you’re hosting a party or leaving them on a doorstep! The recipe makes 16, but consider doubling it because everyone will want seconds of this delicious dessert. ( add from Inspired by preppykitchen.com on bottom of page)
