What a Hoot: Trailer Trash Theme Dinner Party

Last weekend I attended a most unique dinner party that featured a trailer trash theme. It was the first time I’d even heard of such a thing, and I admit it was a lot of fun.

The hostess had a large back yard, and used it to full advantage. (No, she didn’t haul in an old Airstream for the trailer trash theme party, but it would have been a nice touch. LOL)

Here are some of her trailer trash theme decorating ideas:
– Big posters of NASCAR scenes
– Folding lawn chairs
– Jerry Springer shows projected on a sheet clothes-pinned (is that a verb?) to a clothesline that also had a few unmentionables attached
– Steel tubs and coolers of iced beer and sodas
– Microwave placed outdoors
– Old tires
– Pink flamingo lawn decorations
– A string of lights with some Christmas ornaments attached
– Charcoal bbq
– An old pick up truck with a sign saying “Party Here”

The trailer trash theme menu consisted of mostly casual fare:
– Cheese Whiz on crackers
– Cheese puffs
– Vienna sausages
– Onion dip
– Doritos
– Hot dogs & hot dog buns
– Whole dill pickles
– Chicken nuggets
– TV dinners (guests pick one from a cooler and microwave it)
– Cold pork & beans with saltine crackers
– Twinkies or Moon Pies for dessert

Guests got into the trailer trash theme by wearing spandex, big hair with rollers, and extreme makeup. One “gentleman” wore a white tank-type undershirt, trucker cap, huge belt buckle, and a mullet hairdo.

What a hoot! The trailer trash theme dinner party was fairly simple, but very creative. I took more notes, and am adding this idea to my theme party section of my family cookbook. Oh yeah, our hostess even crowned a king and queen of the trailer trash trailer park. Funny.

Happy Cookbooking,
