Hey Everyone… *HOW YOU DOIN’*
So I’ve always been a big F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan, I could watch it all day everyday and pretty much quote every episode, lol. And I’ve always had a fascination with the friends favorite hangout “Central Perk.” It has always been a tv nerd dream of mine to sit on that big orange couch on the set of F.R.I.E.N.D.S with a big ole mug of coffee in my hand. It’s such a shame I never got to visit the set in real life, it would have been an amazing experience. Because to me, it was and still is an iconic show, one that can never be matched. There is a certain simplicity about it, it makes you laugh, makes you cry, there are first loves, and breakups, but it mirrors real life. People don’t always have the right words to say, and often times jokes are made during times of tragedy because it makes it easier to cope, that’s what friends is about, the root of it all is the uplifting comedy. And it’s a beautiful thing.
So for a while I had been toying around with the idea of having a central perk themed party, I’ve seen a few examples of it online, and I was eager to make it happen. So I did! Take a look at some of the pics, including decor, menu, guest list and even entertainment! 😉
My goal was to bring Central Perk and the spirit of F.r.i.e.n.d.s into my very own living room.
Decor & Menu:
A number of years ago, my best friend lent me the friends soundtrack to burn, so to set the mood I played the theme song while everyone arrived, it was pretty cool because there’s the long version of the song and towards the end there are snippets of conversations from the show between the characters, so it was a good ambiance setter, made it feel like they were right there with us!
Guest Entertainment 😉

After all the planning it was a really great experience to share my Central Perk and Friends infatuation (lol) with some amazing friends of my own! Friends is a show that should have never ended…but will live on through me and all my other friends buffs… and well through reruns lol….in the wise words of Rachel Green…
Yes Rachel, yes it is 😉
