Last weekend, I threw a 90’s style birthday bash at my house to celebrate my 23rd birthday (milestone, I know). If you read my earlier post, you would understand how excited I was about planning this. In the weeks leading up to the party, I spent a lot of time researching ideas and sourcing all kinds of 90’s bits and pieces. Maybe it’s all the free time I’ve had lately (I’m only working on a casual basis at the moment) but I found it was a really great outlet for me to put all of my pent up creativity into. That and I love the 90’s. A lot.

For my outfit, I decided on going as a 90’s prom queen with a grunge twist. While I tossed up the idea of going as Cher from Clueless, I felt like this was a little more me. I fell in love with the skirt which I found on eBay, and ended up teaming it up with a velvet bodysuit (which I wore off the shoulder), a choker necklace and black combat boots. The tiara was the final touch, which I felt really completed the ensemble. My best friend Luke went as a boy band member, and I still can’t decide whether he looked more like a Backstreet Boy or an NSYNC dude.

I used the dining table as the main food location, which in addition to classic party snacks, also included curly straws, bubble blowers and mini slinkies. I strung a double layer of string above the table which had images of celebrities and popular TV shows from the ’90s, which I attached using pegs.

I set up another smaller table which had a few different bits and pieces on it; babysitters club books, a Barbie doll still in the packaging from 1993, pokemon cards, party bags and disposable polaroid cameras. I added a few different toys and things in other spots around the house as well, just to give it that 90’s touch.

I made these cupcake toppers using images of CD covers from the ’90s.

Bum bags and glow sticks are never a bad idea!

Yeah, there was breakdancing…


I’m so obsessed with my Instax, I only wish I took more pictures because I definitely bought enough film!

All up it was an amazing, very drunk night. I loved how into the theme everyone got, my friends are the coolest.
