After much anticipation, the final season of Lost premiered tonight (don't worry, no spoilers here) and I had a little Lost viewing party with Rob. Unfortunately, I didn’t think of having a Lost themed party until 6pm tonight so I only had two short hours to whip something up. To make matters worse, Rob and I have both been sick for the past few days and barely had any food in the house.
That didn’t stop me though and I put together a mini Lost watching party for us. First, I quarantined the refrigerator with the famous Quarantine hatch sign:
I also printed out the Dharma cafeteria symbol and used it to decorate the kitchen counter:
For food, I made pizza and stood some broccoli on it to make it look somewhat like trees in the jungle (use your imagination people, I didn’t have much time). For some reason, I thought a rectangular pizza would be more “Lost” like and didn’t realize until afterwards that a traditional round pizza would look more like the island. I blame my cold for clouding my Lost thinking! But I salvaged the island-ness of the pizza by adding a Jack action figure which Rob got for me a few years ago.
Of course no party is complete without some dessert. I wanted to bake some cookies but had no ingredients in the house (sometime during the past three days while I was stuck at home sick someone ate the rest of our chocolate chips. Ok, maybe it was me). Luckily, I had a box of low fat brownie mix and quickly whipped up a batch. I always keep a box of brownie mix in the house for such last minute emergencies!
To make the brownies Lost-like, I cut them into the shape of an airplane and coated them with a layer of low-fat Cool Whip. Tada, instant Oceanic Air brownies! Don’t worry, the rest of the brownies weren’t thrown out, just put away for later munching.
And that is my last minute Lost party! Nothing spectacular, but a cool way for us to enjoy Lost and have some fun on a weeknight. I think our little Lost party turned out well considering my lack of ingredients, time, and preparation. Did you have a Lost party? Ever throw a tv show themed party?
