It’s been nearly 30 years since the final episode of The Golden Girls aired for the first time, and yet it hasn’t slowed down in terms of popularity. Now you can throw a Golden Girls-themed party (opens in new tab), and it’ll be like Dorothy Zbornak (Bea Arthur), Rose Nylund (Betty White), Blanche Devereaux (Rue McClanahan), and Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty) are there!

The deluxe kit from Prime Party comes with eight 9-inch dinner plates, eight 7-inch dessert plates, eight 9-ounce paper cups, 16 napkins, 16 beverage napkins, a “happy birthday” banner, and a table cover. All of the supplies are covered in the ladies’ faces, so there will be no doubt that there is a strong theme to your celebration.

The little details are what will really transport your friends and family to the lanai! The dessert plates say “Live Like Rose, Dress Like Blanche, Think Like Dorothy, Speak Like Sophia.” That’s really the mantra we should all be living by every day. The larger napkins feature quotes by the famous women, like “The older you get, the better you get. Unless you’re a banana.” Rose is truly one of a kind!
