Friends Themed Party Ideas Ross & Rachel Would Love

Get ready to tap into some serious 90s nostalgia with a fabulous Friends themed party! Check out these ideas for invitations, food, and decorations that pay homage to favorite characters and moments from the beloved sitcom’s ten-season run.

Friends Themed Party Invitations

To start, send Friends themed party invitations by text or email to share important event details with guests and easily manage RSVPs online. Customize retro Friends invitations featuring the whole gang, Friends themed birthday party invitations with Monica’s peephole frame, or Friends coffee hour invitations that incorporate elements from everyone’s favorite coffee shop. 

You can even celebrate life’s major milestones with a Friends engagement party invitation (aptly titled “The One Where We Got Engaged”); a Friends themed bachelorette party invitation that features Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe dressed in wedding gowns; and a Friends themed baby shower invitation with a liner that incorporates lobsters, a turkey wearing sunglasses, and other fun Friends elements diehard fans will appreciate. 

Friends Themed Party Food

Once you’ve sent your invitations, it’s time to think about what to serve your guests. Below are a few Friends themed party food ideas that incorporate memorable moments from the show.

Friends Themed Party Decorations

Create a festive atmosphere for your celebration with Friends themed party decorations. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Greet guests with a “The One Where…” banner that includes the reason you’re celebrating (“...Mike turns 30”, “...Sara Has a Baby”, etc.). 
  • Set up a table at the entrance with “Hello, My Name Is” stickers and a sign that encourages guests to use two name tags like Ross did in season 5, episode 15. Guests can put their real names on one sticker and the Friends character that they most identify with on the other. 
  • Decorate with red, yellow, and blue umbrellas like the ones from the opening credits.
  • Write your favorite Friends TV show quotes on mini chalkboards or print a few quotes on colorful paper and frame them.
  • Place oversized coffee mugs throughout the space and use them to serve beverages, regardless of what the drink is.
  • Set up a fun photo backdrop with Monica’s apartment door. First, tape a lavender, reusable tablecloth or purple gift wrap to a wall. Next, make a peephole frame out of cardboard, paint it yellow, and hang it on the door. Finally, provide fun props like oversized sunglasses and a red fez hat, fake mustaches (like the real one Monica’s boyfriend Richard had), monkeys, Magic 8 balls, and more!

Use these celebration tips and get creative with your own ideas to throw an unforgettable Friends themed party that Chandler, Phoebe, Joey, Monica, Ross, and Rachel would be proud of!
