Long ago, before kids and real responsibility and when I was still skinny enough to rock a real short denim mini skirt, my husband and I had a White Trash Party! This is TOTALLY my kind of party! So I thought I’d share my white trash party ideas with you.
Back in August 2006, hubby and I hosted a White Trash Backyard Bash. If you weren’t dressed to the nines in your best white trash gear, you couldn’t get through the door. And let me just say, people went all out. We served proper white trash food and drink like Twinkies, canned cheese, weenies in bbq sauce, Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, and wine in a box. And of course we had a keg in the back…because what kind of white trash party would it be without keg stands? A good time was had by all.
White Trash Party Ideas: Decor
I’ll start by showing you some pictures of our house trailer:
See the laundry hanging in the front of the house? The barbecue with the dead plant hanging from it? And yes, the yard did have pink flamingos and plastic sunflowers in it.
The front door, complete with Christmas lights (remember, the party was in August), a dead plant, and tin foil on the windows.
Our idea of a highfalutin’ flower arrangement
The living room couches we covered with sheets and towels to keep clean from the dirt the riff-raff might bring in with them.
And what white trash party would be complete without the Confederate Flag.
White Trash Party Ideas: Costumes
Some of the party goers, who shall remain nameless (for the most part):
And some of my personal favorites:
Hubby dressed to impress
Me making out with George Clooney…kinda, sorta, but not really at all. Do you know what my hubby said when he saw this picture? “You put your shoe on the wall?”!
Me and my brothers
My mom’s trashy tattoo of her nickname
Me and my brothers and sisters
But by far, the person who not only dressed up for the occasion, but also got into character 100% was my brother David, a.k.a. Snake. Snake talked like trash (complete with a gold tooth), acted like trash, wouldn’t acknowledge you if you called him by his real name, and cracked all of us up. Like roll-on-the-floor-with-tears-in-your-eyes cracking up. And we still ask my brother D to bring Snake to every family party we have. We haven’t seen Snake since our White Trash Backyard Bash, but each and everyone of us hopes to see him again someday soon. He must be back in jail.
Here’s my favorite picture from the whole party. This is Snake, freshly released from the joint:
Here’s a picture of what my brother D (holding Ms. M at Easter) looks like on a regular day, just so you can appreciate the transformation:
To this day, people still ask us when we’re going to have another White Trash Backyard Bash. Maybe it’s time…
And if you are looking for white trash gift ideas, I’ve got you covered! How about hillbilly wine glasses (also referred to as white trash wine glasses), Jolly Rancher vodka, Candy Cane Vodka and more!
