The Ultimate 90's Sleepover

The Ultimate 90's Sleepover

This idea came to me while watching "Friends" for the millionth time, but nonetheless, when Phoebe, Monica and Rachel had their all-girls sleepover that made the girls realize that they don't even have a "PL," it dawned on me that I'm the age that they are portraying now. They are mid to late 20's trying to figure out life and even though they're not super successful, married, rich or anything like that, they had each other. Maybe it's because I'm 27 and having more panic attacks about my future lately, but the idea of having an old-fashioned sleepover with my girls sounded like a fantastic idea.

I quickly made the arrangements, picked a night and planned it out. I used to have sleepovers every weekend with my friends. It's what 12 year old girls look forward to the most on the weekends and there are certain aspects of those sleepovers that quite frankly if you didn't grow up in that time, you just wouldn't get it.


I wanted to throw and old school 90's/early 2000's sleepover. Before the smart phones had high quality cameras, before you could get any food delivered to your door and even before Instagram. For this sleepover we had to pull out all the stops. Order pizza, old school games, Mary-Kate & Ashley movies, tons of junk food, and, because we're over 21, wine. That's new, but it was a necessity.

The Food
As I said before, you can get any food you want delivered right to your door. That wasn't the case 20+ years ago. So what did you eat when you had a sleepover? Pizza. Another thing was all the junk food. I picked up a ton of snacks and treats that I loved as a kid, but only got on special occasion. We had Gushers, Fruit Roll-Ups, cosmic brownies, dippers, Capri-Suns and Kool-Aid. We also picked up some candy and let me tell you if you need candy for a party you should go to Five Below. They sell such large quantities for so cheap. Plus they had a lot of the candies that I grew up with that you can't really find in the grocery stores anymore. Rocio even made cupcakes with the pattern of the classic 90's paper cup!

Music & Movies
I made the ultimate pre-teen angst playlist on my Spotify for us to listen to the whole night. Only music, tv shows and movies that we watched and love as pre-teens were allowed. I am still a huge Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fan so I had a ton of their movies set aside of the occasion. My cousin even brought some VHS tapes, not that I had anything to watch them on but the nostalgia was there.

Fashion
Obviously to stay on brand we had to pull out our very best 90's/2000's outfits. We decided to have a "fashion show" (did you just cringe reading that, because I did, but remember it's what we all used to do, including you, don't lie) and everyone showed off their best look from that era. Some of the girls wore the classic dress over a t-shirt, Rocio wore an oversized Rugrats shirt, Maria wore the classic fanny pack and scrunchie combo and I found this 90's Taco Bell looking printed shirt at Marshalls and paired it with my 1993 gold pendant from Amazon.

Entertainment
To keep ourselves entertained and away from our iPhones we had a ton of things that would be considered a "throwback," but to us, it was like we were 12 years old all over again. Everyone brought something that symbolized their childhoods one way or another including Twister, a Barney stuffed animal, a McDonald's Play-Dough set and I even have an old MK&A board game. The funniest part was that Rocio and my cousin both brought Bratz Dolls! Those were very entertaining throughout the night. I have a pink digital camera that I've had since high school and we took tons of photos using that camera, just like we used to when we were young. We also took our best "MySpace selfies," honestly it's pure gold. We also did the Fruit-Roll up challenge on TikTok. But let's be honest, we mostly sat around and talked about boys all night. I guess nothing has really changed.

I love a good themed party and having a throwback party with my gals is always a recipe for a fun night.
