Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life – DIY Viewing Party

Ever since news broke about the upcoming Gilmore Girls Netflix Revival Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, I’ve wanted to do something to commemorate the occasion. I grew up watching Gilmore Girls and I like to think it is the only reason I can read and talk at an absurdly fast pace. I could only ever afford to build up my DVD collection to series 3 and, therefore, spent at least a month every year slowly going through every episode on watch series (thank god for Netflix, I wouldn’t have the attention span for that nowadays). I also participated in a 30 Day Gilmore Girls Challenge on tumblr almost 7 years ago, posts can still be found today if you know where to look; be careful though, there’s a lot of One Direction gifs I am not proud of.

Real insightful, 12 year old Carol.

ANYWAY – to the point of this post.

I decided to take the Date Night with Mom idea and make it a little more, well, me. I also only wanted to spend money on food.

And you can’t forget about Big Edie and Little Edie, I mean come on.

FOOD

The SORTED boys helped me out massively here with their 3 Epic Movie Snacks video. I wanted to make everything in it, however I’m too lazy so I just picked their Bacon and Cheddar Gourmet Popcorn.

Obviously these bad boys (you don’t get much of a selection at ASDA).

And these cupcake toppers stuck into Nigella Lawson’s Red Velvet Cupcakes.

DRINKS

“COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE”

I would’ve made boozy coffees but I don’t have any chocolate liquor, so the booze part of this is going to just be mulled wine and/or mulled cider because:

A) Christmas

and

B) it was all I had.
