In 2013, I threw my best friend what seems to be the first-known FRIENDS-themed bridal shower. Buzzfeed,Cosmo,Comedy Central UKand others have shared the news, and I blogged about ithere.
Today, “FRIENDS” is now a popular theme for parties and showers – especially since the show continues to thrive in syndication and both Generation Z and millennials are newly obsessed (even if they were just being born when the show debuted).
HERE ARE MY PICKS FOR THE TOP 10
FRIENDS-THEMED SHOWER IDEAS EVER!
The ultimate FRIENDS-themed invitation. I’m biased, of course, as this is my design, but I truly feel like it’s the best FRIENDS-themed invitation. It comes in several colors and everything can be customized. I can vouch for the customer service (you get to work with me!) and the quality. Plus, I can print them for you!
This awesome photo backdrop! Ladies, we love a good step-and-repeat, no? This easy to re-create backdrop will delight your guests and have them snapping selfies and creating the best Insta-stories about your event! All you need is purple wrapping paper and a yellow frame (this handmade frame on Etsy is GREAT!).
The “trifle” and a killer shower food spread. Who can forget the TRIFLE episode?! It’s a shower gotta-have! But there are so many food moments throughout the 10 seasons of “FRIENDS,” you should have no trouble coming up with themed food that will give everyone a chuckle as they make a plate. Here are some of my faves from around the web:
The cake. If you want an amazing centerpiece, plus a delicious cake, this is the one! Created by Just Desserts by Jess of Thornwood, New York, this is by far one of the best FRIENDS-themed bridal shower cake out there. Although, there are many!
A Central Perk coffee bar.
No FRIENDS-themed shower is complete without a coffee bar worthy of Central Perk. All you need is a great pot or two of coffee, an assortment of different mugs (bonus points for giant mugs!), and a Central Perk sign! Like these:
The party favors. Affordable and used by most all people, coffee cups are a great party favor, especially when we’re talking about FRIENDS. You’ll find so many FRIENDS-themed coffee mugs on Etsy!
FRIENDS-themed name tags. Using silly names from the show, each guest can pick a different name tag to wear during the shower! A great conversation starter!
Great purple and yellow decor. From table clothes and party plates to paper straws and balloons — sticking to these quintessential FRIENDS colors will round out your party. Items I love:• Paper Straws viaTwigsAndTwirls.com • Polka dot balloons viaPartyCity.com • Purple and gold dot plates viaZazzle.com • Pastel “party time” plates viaPaperSource.com • Flower examples galore via Google (coffee mug arrangement for the win!)
