    "RENT" theme party ideas

    Hi everyone! (and especially fans of RENT)

    I'm looking for ideas for a RENT theme party I'm hosting. I'm lucky enough to be married to someone who works with a performing arts center where the touring company of RENT is rehearsing before their tour and performing a couple of shows. Since I'm a huge fan of the show (and now the movie!), we're hosting a party for about 30 people before one of the shows. So, I'd like to do a RENT-theme, and I'm looking for ideas... food, decorations, party-favors, whatever comes to mind. And, I knew this was the place to come! All ideas and thoughts will be appreciated!!!

    The only thing I could think of is food/appetizers related to Tom and Angel's dream of opening up a restaurant in Sante Fe.

    Or how about Maureen "cow jumped over the moon" milkshakes or sombreros?

    You have to serve bananas and Captain Crunch, of course.

    It was Christmastime, so if you can find some leftover green and red tissue paper bells or red and green streamers, that would be good.

    Draw a picture of a coat on a poster board and then have a paper sleeve with some tape on it so you can play "Pin the sleeve on the coat".

    Play charades by having each person act out the different "art" things like playing the drums on a 10 gallon pickle drum, the lawnchair dance...I can't remember what all they say in "La Vie Boheme."

    Our party was absolutely FABULOUS!! Thank you so much for all your help... I used a ton of different get crafty ideas...
    -- I made bowls using recycled vintage albums and filled them with Captain Crunch as an appetizer/desert
    -- We filled a few pickle drums with flowers for the buffet table
    -- we made a sign for the door that said "Life Cafe"
    -- we cut out the lyrics to La Vie Boheme and used them as confetti over all the tables
    -- We found out that the day of our party was Jonathon Larson's birthday, so we made a cake that said No Day But Today, Happy Birthday Johathon
    -- We served GREAT Tom Collins, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic
    --We made lots of Stoli cocktails
    -- I used zebra print fabric as a table cloth
    -- And, of course made many Rent themed toasts throughout the evening!

    Thanks again for all the great ideas!
