So we are going to come right out and say we have no plans for you to actually recreate the shower scene-- but there are ways to give a nod to it at your party. The iconic opening scene involves several shots that display the horrible cruelty Carrie is subjected to that we don’t quite need to give explicit details about. However, lighten the mood and hand out these hilarious flasks as party favors or load them up with red colored shots for a, er, “appropriate” drink of choice.

God Fearing Food

“Religious” isn’t a serious enough description for what Carrie’s mother was. While it may be over the top to deck your party out in religious paraphernalia, we do have an impressive list of biblical foods that should definitely make it onto your food bar.

Defy Gravity

In honor of Carrie discovering her telekinetic powers make you party defy gravity. We found wine bottle holders that appear to be floating and candles that hover in mid air. Use glassware and translucent table linens on your tables to create the illusion of weightlessness.

What to Wear

Of course, everyone who arrives should be dressed to kill. Aside from a pink gown dosed in blood, guests can arrive in time period prom attire. Encourage them to play off of their favorite character’s clothes in the movie or arrive as Carrie’s victims.  

Prom Night

Prom night is finally here and it is time to get the horror show on the road. For the prom, make sure you capture the glittery essence of the prom pre Carrie freak-out but hanging dozens of shiny stars and dusting food with edible glitter. Instead of actually pouring pig’s blood on your guests, serve an array of party pork dishes to give an appropriate nod to Carrie’s final straw.

Bloody Good Time

With the help of a few food items, you can give Carrie’s prom a fitting shade of red and cover the party in fake blood. From the decor, to the guests, to even the food everything should be oozing gruesome (but edible) amount of fake blood.

Light a Fire

Turn up the heat and set the party on fire Carri style. Set the scene with dozens of strategically, safely placed candles to give off an eerie glow that will serve as the main lighting for your party. If you are taking the party outdoors, nothing could be more fitting than a pig roast that will freak your friends out and delight their taste buds simultaneously.

Take a Stab at It

The dark ending of the movie can be easily and safely represented at your prom. Use fake butcher and steak knives to dress up party foods. To give off the illusion of freshly stabbed centerpieces and table wear, use magnetic knives to give a hair raising effect.
