  1. Feed me all the Osso Bucco you can,
    Give me all the baby carrots in the world,
    Bring me an endless supply of Kool Aid on tap,
    Let’s play Office board games all night,

    The only true way to enjoy an Office finale party right, is just to be with the people that matter the most; the characters.

  2. Donuts (michaels birthday)
    Fruit and veggies (“weight loss” vending machine) lol

  3. You’re welcome for all the contributions haha. Love the show just as much as you.

    P.s. make sure you list Herrs Chips from grief counseling.

  4. 7 and 7 with eight Maraschino cherries, sugar on the rim, blended if you can. (Casino night)

  5. Make sure on the Awesome Blossom that you order it Extra Awesome! I did this type of thing for the Seinfeld finale and it was a blast! But my husband wants this week to be just us watching in tribute to our favorite show. I can handle that since I want to hear every line!!!

  6. Have Mr. Bean playing in the other room, and Pink Panther movie playing in your office. And make sure others don’t empathize. You’ll wallow, so keep conversations light. (The Chump)

  7. What about decorations? We’re decorating the room in black (and all wearing black) since we’re in mourning, but previously have decorated the way Jim and Dwight did for Kelly. Something made of ice. Something in Jello. Bobbleheads.

  8. Personally I will be getting a thing of Mr. Noodles for the finale. I remember falling in love with this show while eating a bowl of it one night in first year of college.

  9. What about an old favorite from “Kevin Cooks Stuff in The Office” (special feature from season 3):

    -Creme Brulee (tapioca pudding and sugar packets)
    -Quesadillas a la Kevin (chips and squeeze cheese…you can even get creative with circle and flower designs if you wish!)
    -Home/work brewed beer (aka, bacteria filled yeast water)

  10. Great list and ideas! Too bad I will be in a car and missing out on the finale until I return home (my sis better know I love her! Going to her Masters Degree graduation)

  11. @30 Carla-my work friend and I also put on a Seinfeld party like this and had props like a puffy shirt, fishing rod with a marble rye, etc. Great fun !

    How bout another activity: guess how many jelly beans are in the jar

    This list is amazing and can’t believe how many food and drink references there have been !
