Oh sit right back and you'll hear a tale...
That's right. You know it. You love it! So you'll love a Gilligan Party too!
I once heard that every minute of every day Gilligan's Island is being broadcast somewhere in the world.
I grew up watching Gilligan's Island, and absolutely love it. We have the
Gilligan's Island DVD Collection and watch it over and over again.
So, naturally I once had a Gilligan's Island party. It was really pretty simple to get together, and it was fun - everyone really go into it.
For decorations, we made
homemade party decorations.
We served the standard assortment of
easy party food, including tropical food items.

We played episodes on the TV screen throughout the party, but the best part that made this one of my favorite adult party ideas was the fact that just about everyone got into a costume.
We encouraged guests to "Come as Your Favorite Castaway". We had lots of Maryanns (I came as Ginger - I even died my hair auburn red and stitched up a evening gown like hers!). Guys came as all the characters - Professor, Mr. Howell, the Skipper, and of course Gilligan.
We had a costume contest and our friend Daryl won. He came as the professor, which is a pretty easy costume, actullay, but it was what he did with it! He carried a physics textbook around with him, drank from a science flask (and had test tubes on hand as well) and was "in character", often heard saying things like "those natives over there are not indigenous to these parts!" It was halirous.
For those few who didn't dress up, we had leis for them so everyone could get into the act.
More recently, our school auction theme used a Gilligan's Island theme. We used these same ideas and it was a big hit.
Hold a Gilligan Party as a fundraising party.
Try it yourself and have fun!
