There’s no party like a Mindy Lahiri party, because a Mindy Lahiri party don’t quit! Just like her ass, which doesn’t quit, as one Ms. Lahiri would say.
An ultimate Mindy Project party will have you singing the praises of, well, yourself for days to come. Every single, or newly in love woman or man could take a lesson or two from Ms. Lahiri by throwing themselves a hilariously sexy party that would make historic waves. Sort of, little lapping waves, at least.
Of course, your party wouldn’t be complete without inviting every Danny Castellano, Morgan Tookers, Jeremy Reed, Tamra, and Peter Prentice you know. If you really want to get this party turnt up a la Miley Cyrus, your party will need to have all the makings of a true Mindy Lahiri-approved soiree. So, let us begin, shall we?
1. The Invitation
You absolutely should guarantee that you have a fabulous invitation prepared for the special occasion. Perhaps, even a glitter shooting boxed invite!
But, let’s get real, by your second box the carpal tunnel in your wrists will get severely inflamed, and the exhaustion will leave you in a state of complete starvation. You’ll have to lie down, and plead for someone to bring you McDonald’s to bring you some ease.
So, it’s probably in your and everyone’s best interest to just send a group text. Because, either way, your party will have lots and lots of booze, and ain’t nobody going to miss that.
Obviously, all those attending should rock their hottest outfits, paired with an unassuming stethoscope and white coat. It says you’re chic, yet sophisticated, an adorable Indian-American woman with a penchant for Taylor Swift ballads.
But, whatever you do, do not allow anyone to walk through that door with an offensive nursing outfit. Morgan will not be happy.
You definitely want to leave them guessing what’s under that righteous outfit, even if you end up showing up in a frumpy sweatshirt.
No Mindy Project party is complete without a customary Wreath Witherspoon adornment for your door. Anything less would just not suffice. In fact, stock up, and hang one on every door in your place. You can never be too open about your undying love for Reese Witherspoon.
Of course, plenty of Taylor Swift “We Can Do It!” posters are in order. Girl power is so in right now.
If you’re really trying to keep it hip like the young kids these days, a well positioned stripper pole is never a bad idea. Make sure to take the first spin to make sure it’s in sturdy condition!
4. Food & Drink
This will be the easiest part of you party planning. Clearly, you must have all the food at your party. You know, all of it. Chicken wings, cake, party platters, turkey legs — when you think you have enough, do not stop. Continue to bring the trays out because…
And, do not forget to require all guests to bring a plate of food as well. This is a requirement. Entrance will not be allowed without food.
And, extra points will be given for those wearing a wine bra at the party. Screw it, let’s make that a party favor. Wine bras for everyone!
5. Drinking Game
Speaking of wine, no Mindy Project would be complete without a stellar drinking game, meh, a mediocre one will do. Pop in those Mindy Project DVDs, and start guzzling.
Take a shot every time Danny says something incredibly sweet, adorable, or irresistibly sexy.
Take a shot every time Peter says something both inexplicable AND strangely intriguing all at the same time.
Take a shot every time Mindy eats her feelings.
Take a shot every time Mindy keeps it real with someone.
Take a shot every time Tamra makes a hilarious, but possibly true observation.
Take a shot every time Morgan gives Dr. L a supportive ego-boost.
6. Singles Puppy Cuddle Puddle
Once everyone’s smashed after an awesome round of drinks, there might be tears… from the singles. You see, all inhibitions will be down at this point, and if you’re single guests are anything like Mindy, they’ll be feeling pretty hilariously sorry for themselves, maybe taking a jab or two at the couples at the party.
But, not to worry! Assuage their aching hearts with a hoard of Morgan’s puppies, and a lovely cuddle puddle.
The adorableness of the dogs, and the hugs, will subdue everyone into a relaxed pile of ease. Getting everyone as comfortable in their skin as possible will be very important for the next activity.
7. Danny Castellano Dance Breakdown
Aaaaah, yeah! It’s time for a Danny Castellano dance breakdown competition. Everyone will have to pull out their best ’90s and stripper moves to put up a good fight in this showdown. Just look at where the bar’s been set.
Make sure everyone has comfortable footwear and dance wear because can’t nobody take on Aaliyah like Danny. But the one who can comes close takes home all the glory!
8. Self-Esteem Ego Boost & Warrior Names
For those party-goers who leave the dance competition with a whimper and bruised ego, this next activity will help get their confidence back up. No one does a self-esteem ego boost better than Mindy. So, just like Mindy, every partygoer around the room will take their insecurities and bundle them up in neat little rationalizations, and words of empowerment.
In fact, every guest will go around the room determining their warrior name!
In two separate containers, names of musical divas and delicious foods will be sorted. Everyone will take turns taking one name out of each container, and finding their warrior names — Whitney Houston Enchiladas for the win!
9. Pick-Up Lines
Of course, your partygoers may need a little help in the hooking up arena. If they’re as straightforward as Mindy, it may be a little difficult to lock in a little nookie before the night is out.
For this purpose, we give you The Mindy Project Pick-Up Lines!
But before you use these sexy lines, make sure you don’t use them on just anybody. Heed Dr. Reed’s advice on this one when choosing a one-night stand.
Advice + pick-up lines = an all night party!
10. Basically, Do Anything
A Mindy Project party really means absolutely anything goes! So, make it happen yo! Get that party started.
