Golden Girls Party

Raise your hand if you're a Golden Girls fan!
 Who doesn't love the geriatric hi-jinks of Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia?  
 My friends and I are huge lovers of the show and when I found out one of my friends was moving out of state, I knew I had to throw her the ultimate send off, Golden Girls style! When harnessing your inner Golden Girl, you can't have too many bright pinks and lime greens to inject some Miami flair into your party. So sit back and relax out on the lanai, grab yourself a slice of cheesecake and enjoy a party featuring your favorite sassy senior citizens! 

ORIENTAL TRADING had everything I needed for the party, right down to pink flamingos and palm leaves.  Blanche would be so proud...

Here's what you'll need  to create a fabulous Golden Girls inspired party:

These "Thank you for being a friend" ( now that song is in your head) favors were so quick and easy to make. Find the tutorial HERE along with the free printable. You can't go wrong with palm trees and jelly beans!

I'm a bit of a favor freak and my guests are always sent home with at least a couple fun favors from the party. I used hot pink parchment treat bags to create these goodie bags and my CRICUT machine to cut out the golden silhouettes of the ladies.

 I used pink vinyl, my CRICUT EXPLORE AIR 2  and clear acrylic insertable tumblers to make these classic quotes tumbler favors. 

"Shady Pines, Ma."
 I love when Dorothy repeats this veiled threat to send her mom, Sophia, to a nursing home when she is about to do something rebellious or if she says something out of line. Each guest received a tumbler with a Golden Girls quote on it. They were quite the hit!

Rose's hilarious and bizarre St. Olaf stories were the highlight of any Golden Girls episode. 
"Back in St.Olaf, that moose not only raised Yimminy, he put him through medical school."
Oh, how I love Rose!

And of course, we can't forget Sophia's Sicily stories!

I used flamingo pinwheels (very Miami-esque) as table decor and each guest home was sent home with one. How cute are they?!

What's a Golden Girls party without cheesecake? How many times did the girls talk it out over cheesecake...I'm thinking in the hundreds! Cheesecake solves everything, right?!  The oh-so-incredibly talented  Ali from Paperly Press designed these awesome Golden Girls toppers for the cheesecake.

 "Like we say in St. Olaf — Christmas without fruitcake is like St. Sigmund's Day without the headless boy."

"Jealousy is a very ugly thing, Dorothy. And so are you in anything backless." 
Golden Girls

"Nobody ever believes me when I'm telling the truth. I guess it's the curse of being a devastatingly beautiful woman."
Golden Girls

"No, I will NOT have a nice day."
