The first step in getting everyone into the mood for a 90s theme party is to make sure they are dressed for the part!
Most hosts will find that planning and organizing for the event will prove beneficial. Therefore make your shopping list for the celebration in advance. From the foods and drinks to the desserts and take home treats, this simple touch will add a great deal to the event and make the celebration very popular. Grunge was the name of the game in the 90s, and torn baggy jeans, Doc Marten boots, platform shoes, and fanny packs or backpack purses were all the rage. Another option would be to base your 90s party on popular movies of the decade like Clueless, The Matrix, or Jurassic Park. Everyone could come dressed as a character in their favorite 90s movie! Popular music came from such notables as The Spice Girls, MC Hammer, Nirvana, and Vanilla Ice.

An interesting 90s party game is Name that TV Show. Give guests a black paper tablet and a light colored gel pen (both popular in the 90s) and get the theme songs from various popular 90s television shows like Friends, The Real World and Beverly Hills 90210 and play them for everyone. Have each person name the TV show from which the tune originated. To make it easier, if you think it will be too difficult, is to have all the TV shows listed, and just let the guest match them to the appropriate music.
Instead of party favors, consider giving money or tokens (Bought in the party section, fake money is easy to find,or can be created on a home computer easily) and allowing the guests to earn money so they can go to the party store and redeem their earnings by purchasing items you have purchased. Consider things like butterfly clips, jewelry, temporary tattoos, and miscellaneous items with which to stock your 'party store'! That way everyone comes home with a party favor they are sure to enjoy!
