TOTALLY TELEVISION

Instead of watching their favourite TV character, your friends can become them at your TV party! You get a huge range of costumes which really adds to the vibrancy of the party, unlike a Simpson’s party that looks like an evil scientist has been breeding clones of Homer Simpson. It also sparks great conversations as guests can find out about shows and characters that they may not previously have known about. TV has been around in Australia since the 1950s which means party guests of all ages will have something to come as. Think of all the great shows: ‘The Simpsons’, ‘Cheers’, ‘M.A.S.H.’, and of course ‘Spongebob Squarepants.’

TOTALLY TELEVISION

PARTY THEME IDEAS AND PLANNING TIPS:

SUITABLE FOR:

Birthday parties for people of all ages, end-of-year work party, housewarming party.

PARTY FOOD IDEAS:

Create the best TV dinners to ever exist. You can cook up a hearty Game of Thrones style roast pork for mains and bake some cupcakes good enough to be served at Sex and The City’s Magnolia Bakery for dessert.

DRINK & COCKTAIL IDEAS:

Stock the bar with everything as this is a broad theme. Take hints from popular TV shows to narrow it down. For example, you could make fruity, sweet Cosmos straight out of Sex and the City, or make Don Draper’s Old Fashioned. But be prepared for anything. BYO is probably a good choice, especially if the drink is relevant to your outfit.

PARTY DECORATIONS:

Find some old school TVs and upcycle them into useful props. For example, turn the TV into a chiller for drinks. Or make your very own bar out of a TV.
