Planning an 80s Themed Party
There is no other decade or time period quite so unique and recognized as the 80’s. So planning an 80s themed party is not only a popular task, but a really fun occasion to plan for. You don’t even need a special occasion to plan such a themed party for, as it’s just a fun way to bring people together. You want to start with invitations that are sure to set the tone from the beginning. Start things off right with plenty of neon color and of course any cues that you can find that are identified with the 1980s like hairspray cans or even funky fonts or cues.
The music is going to be one of the most important elements of this type of party beyond the invitations. First and foremost be sure that you have a never ending playlist of great 80s music including “hair bands”, ballads, and some cool “one hit wonder” rock. The music will get people into the right frame of mind and make for a great setting for a dance party. Be sure that on the invitations you tell people to come dressed in their 80s best as that will help to really capture the spirit of it all.
With the right ensembles and outfits from all of the guests and the music you have yourself an instant hit on its own. Planning an 80s themed party is easy to do as these elements can play into things directly. You can have a great trivia game to test peoples knowledge of 80s movies, TV shows, music, and heart throbs. This is another great way to tie to the theme and ensure that everyone has a great time as you plan a wonderful throwback to the 80s.
