This past weekend I drove back to Omaha to spend time with friends. My Omaha crew is always up for a good theme party so my friend Staci and I thought it would be fun to have a huge sleepover. We decided on a 90s theme since our best sleepovers from childhood took place in that decade. The result was PJs & Pillowfights, our grownup 90s themed sleepover.
Everyone came in their favorite PJs, it was a good display of nostalgia and creativity. I choose MC Hammer style pants (I got them at Urban Outfitters indicating that this may actually be back in style), a Tupac tank, and of course a huge scrunchie. Decorations included lots of pink, purple, and animal print with gold star plates and a variety of neon cups. We had vintage VHS tapes of classic 90s movies set out and sprayed painted a bunch of cassette tapes gold to hang across the table. We also made sure to stick Lisa Frank stickers everywhere, by the end of the night the Lisa Frank stickers were all over people's cups and faces. Staci made a majestic chandelier out of slinkys and we had vases full of multi-colored bouncy balls.
For food, our theme was things that we had in our lunchbox in the 90s. We had Gushers, made Dunkaroo dip, Ring Pops and other fun snack food. We also served cookies and 'milk' (Our grown-up version of milk was White Russians).
We played lots of great games including MASH, (adult) MAD LIBS, built an intense fort (that I actually slept in the whole night), danced and lip synced o our favorite 90s hits and even played Mario on the Super Nintendo. Everyone also got an animal print snap bracelet and gel pen as favors. We ended the night having some pillow fights in our fort with feathers everywhere. I had a great time catching up with everyone and being surrounded by people who make me happy.
