It is finally here. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will be released on November 25th, and if you’re anything like us, the trailer alone makes you laugh and cry. We had talked about trying to watch it together but Wendy had to go and travel for Thanksgiving, and sorry friend, I can’t wait. Whether you will be watching alone in your pajamas the moment the episodes are released, or hosting all of your besties for a party, we’ve got the ultimate viewing experience.

Stash those cell phones so you can give the Girls your full attention. (But how will you tweet about every incredible second?) We’re not sure we’ll adhere to this one, but we sure do love this nod to Luke’s Diner.
We love this kit from Paper Confete on Etsy which includes bunting, a Yale banner, Stars Hollow directional signs, cupcake toppers and more! You might want to be sure to have plenty of tissues on hand, because the loss of Richard Gilmore alone is enough to make me weep right now.
Basically anything you have a lot of will suffice. Thanksgiving leftovers? Go for it! We think you should eat like a Gilmore while watching the Gilmores so we’ll be choosing our favorite takeout along with a box of donuts and probably a stash of leftover Halloween candy. Even coffee (lots of it) and Pop Tarts would be perfection.
Watching is the main event, but how about an activity that you can combine along with the watching. These Gilmore Girls Bingo Cards, also from Paper Confete are the perfect thing. Have a stash of coffee gift cards on hand for the winners.
Candy, duh. Back to Paper Confete (who, by the way, has no idea who we are, we just loved the stuff in this shop.) for these DIY Al’s Pancake World favor boxes. Fill them with the candy of your choice, or create a candy bar and let guests do the hard work for you.
What are you plans for watching the revival? Will you watch alone so you don’t miss a single minute, or watch with a group of friends? Are you staying up until the moment they’re released so you don’t have see a single spoiler online? Will you immediately begin rewatching the second the four episodes are over. Any guesses on when the first Gilmore Guys episode post revival will be released? We are counting down the days over here. Tick tock, Gilmores. Tick, tock.
