Most of us grew up watching this movie and now we can introduce this epic movie to our kids! And why not make a party of it! Invite your friends and their families over and throw an awesome Back to the Future movie party.
Games & Activities
To make your party even more enjoyable, consider setting up some games related to Back to the Future. A simple game could involve showing clips from different parts of the movie while contestants try to guess which scene it is from—the person who guesses correctly gets a prize! Or, if you want something more interactive, you can organize a scavenger hunt where guests have to search around your house for items related to time travel (for example: clocks or hourglasses). Other activities might include trivia contests about Doc Brown's inventions or karaoke competitions featuring songs from 1985 when the first installment of Back To The Future was released in theaters!
This Back to the Future Soundtrack will be perfect in the background before and after watching the movie. Put up a Poster or two on the walls and place a few Marty McFly action figures around with some Red and Yellow balloons (because what's a party without balloons!) and that's all the decor you need! Yahtzee: Back to the Future board game and Back to the Future Monopoly would be fun to have on hand as well! And the game prize winners could receive a classic Back to the Future t-shirt.
For those who want to dress the part of Marty McFly, check out this awesome Hoverboard and this very colorful Marty McFly Cap. And for the Doc Brown fans there'sTHIS or THIS appropriately hilarious costume! These would all be great to re-use for Halloween for years to come.
Food and Drinks
The food and drinks at your Back to the Future themed party should be both creative and easy to prepare. Consider serving traditional ‘80s snacks such as popcorn, chips, candy, Slurpees, and soda. To keep with the theme of the movie, you can also get creative with your food and drinks. For example, you could serve futuristic foods like dehydrated pizza or star-shaped sandwiches. You could also offer “flux capacitor” cocktails or “time machine” mocktails to really get into the spirit of the movie.
All parties need cupcakes so I decided to come up with a fun and easy Back to the Future theme cupcake. And what is more fun than Tie Dye?!? This Tie Dye Frosting adds lots of color to your party and goes great with Marty McFly's cap. Simply bake a batch of your favorite cupcakes then purchase or make your favorite vanilla buttercream frosting. Divide your frosting into 3 different bowls and choose the 3 colors you'd like to use. Add drops of food coloring to each bowl of frosting until you've gotten your desired color.
Don't forget to add more powdered sugar to your frosting if it gets too runny. Prepare a pastry bag fitted with a large piping tip then place 1 scoop of each frosting inside your pastry bag with a spoon and alternate until your bag is full. Simply pipe on your frosting in a swirl and you'll get a really cool, really fun frosting!
Throwing a Back To The Future themed party is sure to be an unforgettable experience for everyone involved! With creative menu ideas for food and drinks, appropriate decorations that reference elements from the movie, and interactive games based on its storyline—you will be sure to please all your guests with this fun celebration! So grab your Hoverboard and put on some Huey Lewis & The News; it's time for a blast from the past!
