okay okay okay…. before you say it I’m going to, YES I really am that extra!!! Chances are you’ve probably heard of Riverdale, and if you haven’t WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!? Seriously go turn on your Netflix right meow!
The show is very loosely based off the Archie comics, which hold a special place in my heart. When I was around 5ish My dad used to take my sister and I to a little place called Coopers Drugs, a tiny drug store that also sold comics, my sister and I would always get the Archie comics. That place felt like it was stuck in a different decade even back then.
Anyway, I love this show #teambetty #bughead hahah SORRY had to get that out so you know where I stand and all! When season 2 was going to premiere I KNEW I had to throw the most epic Riverdale party there ever was!!!!! When Pinterest and google failed me it was up to me!!
I KNEW I had to had Pop’s inspired food! That meant Milk Shakes, Fries, and burgers (but in this case I though sliders would be cuter and more appropriate party food!) Ordered the food baskets and red an white checkered liner paper off amazon! The old school cake stand is from Walmart only $10!
How cute were these food baskets!! I made simple basic sliders, baked a bag of 5lb fries they were delish though. If you guys would like the burger recipe comment down below and let me know!
Moving on to the Milk Shakes, were spiked DUH; Vanilla ice-cream, Chocolate syrup, frozen strawberries, vanilla extract, a little milk, and raspberry vodka!!!!! (Ordered the Milk shake glasses and straws from amazon!)
I knew I had to make Jughead crowns, and Josey and the Pussy Cat doll ears! I made them both out of poster board, paint, a glue gun, and headbands! I even attached bobby pins to each crown so they would be secure for pictures! Everyone watched the show in either a crown or ears of their choice! It was so fun to see everyone all decked out!!!!!
The Shirts were pretty simple and super fun to make! I thought about doing iron on letters but that was getting expensive, so I opted for stencils and black paint. I got a pack of white big tee’s at Target, thought of cute clever things from the show and went to town. I didn’t want to put anyones specific first names on them because that just seemed a little basic to me. This was one of my fav parts! The shirts said : DARK BETTY, SOUTHSIDE SERPENT, BUGHEAD, BLOSSOM, ARCHIEKINS, SECRETS & SINS, HBIC, MAPLE RED
SO WORTH IT!!!! These were so fun to make and so much fun to pick out!
For the photo background, or in technical terms “step and repeat” I ordered the gold ballon letters off esty, and the blue back drop off amazon! It looked magical!!!! So perfect!!!
Then I KNEW we NEEDED Riverdale inspired cocktails!!! I phoned a couple bartenders and with a little help from google came up with these! They were a HIT! The Blue and Gold was so popular there wasn’t even ANY left for the picture!
Getting to watch together and talk on all the commercial breaks, was probably the best part of all! We talked about our favorite characters, and the episode as it was happening and just being together! Honestly the best part was just being with these babes! We had all the laughs took all the pictures and I had all the warm fuzzies!
From my squad to yours PEACE LOVE AND JUGHEAD!!!!!
