*      Your options are almost limitless here.  You can choose to set up your space to resemble:

*      Fran Drescher's beautiful Malibu beachside home

*      The Sheffield's elegant NY upper East Side brownstone

*      If you're hosting a sleepover, decorate your room to resemble Fran's bedroom

*      A New York beauty salon (where Fran Fine got her "roots")

*      A Queens, NY bridal salon where Ms. Fine was fired before stumbling into her position as "The Nanny."

*      Sylvia Fine's (Fran's mom) home complete with leather, leopard prints and plastic slipcovers.

*      Create centerpieces from shopping bags and hat boxes from some of your area's best "Fran-style" shopping haunts (Saks, Lord & Taylor, Barneys, Bloomingdales, etc.)  Stuff the bags with real merchandise or leopard-print, hot pink or bright red tissue paper.

*      Wherever the party is set, just make sure you have your television(s) tuned to Lifetime TV for “ THE NANNY REUNION:A NOSH TO REMEMBER”, on December 6th at 8PM/7C.


*      What's a "Nanny Nosh" without deli food! Here are some ideas to make your spread a "Nosh to Remember."

*      Mini knishes

*      Mini bagels topped with lox (smoked salmon), cream cheese, sliced onions and capers

*      Deli sandwiches on rye (pastrami, corned beef, Reubens, and so on)

*      Kosher pickles

*      New York style potato salad

*      Creamy cold slaw

*      Fran Drescher is serving a full dinner to her guests so you might want to consider something a little more upscale or traditional ethnic dinner cuisine (chicken soup (with or without matzo balls), beef brisket and gravy, potato pancakes or latkes, green beans, or other favorites).  In fact, you can find Fran's salad recipe right on the http://www.lifetimetv.com.

*      Beverages can be anything from bubbly pink champagne, to a frothy Pink Lady, to deli delectables (cream soda or a NY Eggcream (chocolate syrup, selzer or club soda and a splash of milk).  Or how about a bottle of the finest "whine?"

*      Dessert can include something as decadent as chocolate-dipped strawberries or slices of creamy NY style cheesecake.

*      And whatever you serve, be sure to put it on silver plates or platters. After all, the Sheffields always showed sterling good taste.

*      If you can, hire or convince a gentlemen to serve your guests dressed in full butler regalia as the Sheffield's uptight and terribly funny British butler, Niles, to make the evening even more fun and fabulous.

*      Host a look-alike contest and award prizes for the best dressed guests.

*      As guests arrive and before the show, you have to play Fran's favorite (and ours) Barbra Streisand CDs and Broadway show tunes--Make it Cats or Tommy--the one's Mr. Sheffield let get away!

*      Tape a bunch of re-runs of The Nanny (check your local listings for the time the shows air on Lifetime Television or visit http://www.lifetimetv.com) to play for your guests before the reunion special starts.

*      Have guests do their best Fran Drescher laugh impression for prizes.
