    4. Play Some Betty White Themed Music!

    Music is a great way to bring back memories! Play the theme song from the Golden Girls, “Thank you for being a friend” at the beginning and the end of your sit-com theme day.

    5. Cheesecake

    “Let’s slice this baby up and see if we can solve our problems” “It’s always time for cheesecake!”

    The Golden Girls loved Cheesecake! and would always end the show with a slice around the kitchen table. Use all the best China and cake plates and serve cheesecake the Golden Girls favorite dessert with coffee and tea.
