When Apartment Guide designed a challenge to “create an entertainment area or tablescape and throw a party in that space, within the next 10 days,” Caley of How Does She set out to time travel back to the days of HIGH SCHOOL! With cafeteria trays as her inspiration, Caley created a FLASHBACK menu full of tater tots, square pizza (remember those days?), milk cartons, pudding, and lots of other cafeteria eats! High school photos of the guests were combined to create a photo garland hung around the room. My favorite part? Guests arrived dressed up as their favorite High School Stereotype!
Take a trip down memory lane below… with more fun, high school inspired photos + all the creative details from Caley!
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Caley…
THE CHALLENGE & INSPIRATION
“Apartment Guide challenged us to ‘create an entertainment area or tablescape and throw a party in that space, within the next 10 days’. Talk about a time crunch! The main inspiration was cafeteria trays. This opened the food options to anything found in a school cafeteria including, chips, chocolate milk, jello, tater tots, etc!
Each guest provided several photos from their high school days and came dressed as a high school stereotype. My absolute favorite part about this gathering was the participation. Each guest provided several High School pictures (some willingly, some not so willingly) to help set the mood. Their CLASSIC photos were used as party photo garland. Yearbook/party photos were a must at the end of the party!”
