OK, hands up, who’s stupidly excited about the return of Rory and Lorelai? If you’ve no idea what I’m on about then you might want to read a different post, maybe this one? For all you die hard GG fans, keep reading as I’m going to share the ten things you need to host the ultimate Gilmore Girls viewing party.
Have you seen the trailer? Of course you have! But you’re going to watch it again, aren’t you? I can tell 😉
Right, so here we go, are you ready
1.Your best GG fan girls
You cannot have a Gilmore Girls viewing party without your fellow GG lovers. Set a date for your viewing party and if it’s for the new ones A Year In The Life then make it on the actual night it’s released of make a pact to wait and all watch them together at a later date. For the latter you all must love each other a whole lot to wait!
Self explanatory. Any GG party has to involved food and pizza is right up there with coffee when it comes to what is synonymous to Rory and Lorelai.
3. Bingo cards
Add even more fun to you night and play Gilmore Girls Bingo. Check out these downloadable bingo cards or you can even turn it into a drinking game though that could get a little messy.
4. Pop Tarts
So you can buy them, which let’s be honest that is exactly what Lorelai would do, but if you’re feeling particularly creative you can make your own, like these beauties.
These awesome homemade Pop Tarts are by Hello Glow, I’m wondering whether to try and make mini pop tart pops, OR I might just buy Pop Tarts and a load of sweets instead 😉
5. The Rory
Remember when Emily threw a birthday party for Rory and even named a cocktail after her? Well, you too can drink a Rory, check out how here.
6. MORE food – take out
Yes, I know I’ve mentioned food already BUT this is the Gilmore Girls we’re talking about, there can never be enough food. Whether it’s take out, tacos, or just loads of sugary sweets, you need to annoy Luke and get loads of junk food for your party.
Check out these awesome take out boxes by PaperConfete! You can download them and make your own.
7. Fan girl t-shirts
Whether you make your own or buy them here are a few of my favourites..
8. Coffee or at least coffee cake!
You can’t channel you’re inner Lorelai without lots of coffee, whether it’s hot coffee, iced or even coffee cake, there has to be a nod to the good stuff at your party.
Check out this awesome coffee cart by A Beautiful Mess!
9. Whose team are you?
This is a big deal and something every GG fan will have an opinion on, which guy should Rory end up with (you have to choose between Dean, Logan and Jess, you can’t opt out and be wishy washy saying that maybe it’s someone she hasn’t met yet.
Whether you have t-shirts, badges, or cups with your team on, make it something fun. Of course we all know which Team is the right Team, don’t we… 😉
Make sure your living room looks the part. There are so many cool GG printables out there, like these from Jane.com
