How to Have a Legendary HIMYM Finale Party

original image via

The How I Met Your Mother series finale is in 4 short days, and I’m equally excited and sad to see it come to an end. Last year, I had so much fun coming up with ways to celebrate the end of Breaking Bad that I thought it’d be fun to do the same thing for the mother of all comedies. So, here you have it – the keys to having a legendary HIMYM series finale party!

Eat This:
1. The best burger in New York! Or, you know, whichever state you live in.
2. Funyuns – a staple in Ted and Marshall’s college years and in Marshall’s mom’s layer salads (along with mayo and gummy bears, of course).
3. Cupcakes, similar to the ones from Victoria’s bakery.
4. Tantrum – or maybe Mountain Dew with a homemade “Tantrum” label.

Wear this:
1. A ducky tie – but only if you lose a bet.
2. Channel your inner Robin Sparkles with tons of denim (and don’t forget the robot!)
3. Suit up!
4. Red cowboy boots – you’ll totally be pulling. them. off.

Decorate with this:
1. A hanging intervention sign (possibly for an intervention about how obsessed you are with the show?)
2. Mysterious pineapples, just to get people to say, “but what about the pineapple?!?”
3. Yellow (drink) umbrellas – or real ones if you don’t care about bad luck.
4. Coffee cups with the name “Swarley” written on them. Or any variation, such as Swarles Barkley, Swarhili, etc.

Listen to this:
1. “Hey Beautiful” by The Solids (aka the band of the show’s creators, aka the full version of the HIMYM theme song).
2. “Let’s Go to the Mall” by Robin Sparkles (aka one of the greatest songs by Canada’s best fictional pop star)
3. “Sandcastles in the Sand” by Robin Sparkles (aka the classic ballad follow-up hit by the aforementioned fictional pop star)
4. “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers (aka the Fiero’s greatest gift to the gang – a good road trip soundtrack)

Are you planning to watch the series finale? What would you like to see happen to the gang when it all ends?

    This post is perfect! I want to do all of that now! I am sad the show is ending. It has been the only thing I watch on CBS, so now I have no need to go to that channel.

    YES. All of this. I honestly have zero idea how this show is going to end. I’m a little unsatisfied with how this season has gone. I don’t like that they made it all take place on the same day with flashbacks and flashforwards. I wanted him to meet the mother toward the beginning of the season and then develop that a little. And I hope the rumors are completely false that the mother is dying. Not okay. I’ll be tuning in with you next monday. Fingers crossed for an epic finale!

    FUN! I can’t wait for the finale – maybe I’ll surprise Ryan by putting a pineapple on this nightstand Sunday night after he’s asleep. He’ll be so confused until he gets it! I’ll have to wait until Tuesday to watch it though booo! I’ll be staying off the internets to hide from any spoilers!!!

    I am seriously going to cry when I watch the finale. (Which wont be until tomorrow.) I haven’t been satisfied with all the episodes this season….but overall I freaking love this show!!! I have no clue what to expect, I stay away from spoilers and rumors because I don’t want them to cloud my judgement. Maybe I need to go get some Funyuns to watch with. I am sure it is going to be legend wait for it dairy!

    This post is full of winning. Just like the red cowboy boots.
