Trash & Tacky Party - White Trash Trivia Game
Cheryl in Somerset, NJ USA
Trailer Trash & Tacky Party Invitations were designed to look like the cover of the Enquirer. My husband and I dressed Trashy on the cover. The headlines spoke of Elvis sightings, Tammy Fae Baker, "Leopard Prints - Not Just for Church Anymore" etc.
We served a cheese and spam ball, squeeze cheese and Ritz crackers, green Jell-O mold, slim jims, pork rinds, tuna casserole, white castle hamburgers, generic beer etc. We used styrofoam carry-out trays to eat on, take-out fork & knife packages for utensils, salt & pepper packages, napkins from various fast-food restaurants, and Budweiser Huggies to hold drinks in.
For decor we had a cable-spool table with ugly plastic tablecloths, tall prayer and lottery candles bought at the supermarket, tents decorated with Christmas lights, garland, blow-up beer cans, beer posters on the wall, pictures of Anna Nicole Smith, Kid Rock, Jerry Springier, Tammy Faye, and Velvet Elvis posters.
I decorated our bathroom with 50 mug shots of famous people that I downloaded and printed out. Fake flowers and trashy magazines were on the tables. Fake tattoos were available in the bathroom as well as Lee Press-on Nails and cheap hairspray. Music was cheesy 80's rock to Lynard Skynard, etc.
Games were Male and Female arm-wrestling , deep-throat Twinkie contest, and White Trash trivia. Prizes were WWF wrestling t-shirts, chia pets, cheesy car air fresheners, fuzzy dice, and fly-swatters.
The hit of the party were the party favors. I made a "Mug Shot" poster on my wall to simulate getting arrested and everyone held a mug-shot "Somerset County Police Department" sign with their arrest date and serial number then they posed for a mug-shot. I then printed out the pics on my computer and framed them in a Dollar-Store American flag picture frame to take home that night.
Everyone created a new name for themselves from Jeff Gilooly to Tommy Lee and Pam Anderson. Everyone dressed appropriately for the occasion. Fun was had by all!!!
