Before Winona was busted for stealing crap, before Slater got pinched for assaulting his partners, before Mean Girls, there was Heathers. I invited some of my closest lady friends around for an evening of Heathers watching fun, with food and drink lifted straight from the scenes in the movie.
So this week, rather than a specific recipe, I’m giving you a recipe for a rad Heathers themed party, complete with movie quotes to match everything on the menu and take home red scrunchies…
The bomb in the boiler room is made by wrapping packets of lifesavers with red paper, making a wick and sticking the lot together to look like dynamite.
Here’s a link to an older post where I explain how to make the mini hot dogs, or in this case, ‘Turbo Dogs’.
The red croquet balls are just big chocolate orange balls.
For the Hull Clean I made labels and stuck them on mini milk bottles. The drink itself is just lemonade with blue food colouring.
Ich Lüge bullets are gum with sherbet which I picked up from a confectioners.
The movie mentions great pate so much I couldn’t leave it out, but actual pate grosses me out, so I used an olive and feta dip instead.
BBQ corn nuts were easy to find!
…as was the mineral water.
This was fun; I made spaghetti with lots of oregano, popped single serve portions into some small glasses, put cheese on top and put them in the oven. When done, I stuck cake forks into each and wrapped napkins around the glasses.
I didn’t get a good photo of the sandwiches, but I made Vegemite for Veronica Sawyer and Ham and Cheese for Heather Chandler.
I also made slushies which I served in these milkshake cups with red straws, and the red liquorice is from the same scene in the film.
These are the red scrunchies I gave to each guest as a take home gift, along with lolly bags full of the leftover lollies.
So having seen this, which movie would you like to theme a party around? I’m thinking my next party will either be Lost Boys or Goonies themed…
