How To Throw A 90s Party At Home

If you're about to have your birthday or just fancy throwing a big party to relive your youth, we have the perfect OneHowTo article for you: How to throw a 90s party at home.
To throw a 90s party, the first thing to do is to let your guests know about the fancy dress theme. Dressing like a rapper was all the rage during the 90s: baggy trousers, converse shoes, crop tops or tops with low-cut backs, jumpers, mini skirts, high heels and low waist trousers. Think of all the other trends when you plan out your outfit: the symbol of peace, sunflowers, Troll Dolls and Mario Bross were all prominent in this era.
Remember to link the music playing at the party to the theme. For your 90s party, make a playlist on your MP3 player or any other music streaming device, including the hits of that decade: Baby One More Time, Mmmbop, I Want It That Way, U Can not Touch This, Kiss Me, All That She Wants and more.
Decoration is crucial when it comes to a themed party, transforming the venue into a place of the past. Find movie posters or artists that were in-vogue at the time. Also, dig out some old telephones, jukeboxes, vinyl records or any other old music player and use to decorate the venue to transport your guests back in time. Also, don't forget about decorative garlands using tye-dyed colored ribbons- it will add color and the perfect 90s vibe.
Don't forget the iconic smileys!
Drinks are also important. If you plan on serving alcohol, remember to serve ones that were popular in the 90s. How about making a bowl of punch or providing a barrel of beer like in the 'American Pie' movies. You can also offer other types of drink to cater to your guests' tastes.
Create popular drinking games such as beer pong, using the typical red paper cups.
The invitations must also be in keeping with the theme. To keep costs down, you could make invitations using PowerPoint and attach it to an email and sending to your friends. Use images of icons of the time to give your guests a taste of the theme, e.g. a picture of the band Aerosmith. You can also recreate a scene from a 90s film, which could double up as a souvenir for you friends. Movies like Terminator, Trainspotting, American Beauty, Pulp Fiction have very original scenes.
