How to throw your own 2000s themed bday party

Drizzy Drake just celebrated his 32nd birthday party by throwing a huge 2000s themed bash featuring a big Blockbuster video wall, Slurpee machines, a “Rap City” booth, and a recreation of the “106 & Park” set.

While his 2000s were the prime of his teenage and Degrassi years, many of us were still livin' it up in Macca's parties and having backyard water fights in the Summer. Here are some key items you need for a killer throwback party. Soz, we won't be raffling off any Chanel bags here.

The Food

Fairy Bread

Classic. Iconic. Phenomenal. A staple.

Party Pies

Eat these burning hot for extra nostalgia.
