The Memorable 70's!

The key to pulling off a coordinated event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair. Whether that theme is as general as a season or a feeling, or as specific as a special flower, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as creative as you can! 

Whether your party location is in a basement, a kitchen, a school gymnasium, or a Country Club here are a few party tips for pulling together your funky 70's look. 

Divide your party into two areas. Have one designated as your "dance" area, and the other designated as your "food" area. Use a living room, family room, basement, or even garage as the dance floor. The disco area should be dimly lit, and your food area can be well lit, for guests wanting a break from the action.

70'S PARTY DECORATING IDEAS

Remember the the tops of your tables provide a very large surface area, covering them with a themed table cloth or colorful table cloth is the fastest and most economical way to change the look and feel of your party area. For a 70's party try using a black table cloths with neon pink, lime green, & orange overlays the Psychedelic look is the key or use Disco Tableware. Black chair covers are an excellent choice for a 70's theme too.

70's Centerpiece with Boa Retro Centerpiece cylinder vase

For an original touch on your party table, create centerpieces like the ones shown above. A neon colored spike heeled shoe sitting on a record surrounded by a neon boa or place a cylinder vase on a record surrounded by a neon boa. Sprinkle confetti on the table for an additional touch.

Add scene setters & room rolls to walls for a big impact.

Use a pink paint pen to draw random dots or squiggles on the handles of clear plastic cutlery. Tie the plastic flatware together with curling ribbon …big impact at a little price!

70's  MOOD LIGHTING

20 12 8
20" Disco Ball with Base 12" Disco Ball with Base 8" Disco Ball with Base

Never did an occasion call for mood lighting more than a retro party does. To create an authentic psychedelic 60's mood in your home, or party location, start with a few light fixtures. The most popular? 

A Disco Ball or Rainbow Disco Ball is a retro party "must have". Use as a centerpiece, accent for a buffet table or hang from the center of your dance floor.

Black lights and Mini Black Strobe Light are in demand, and the others provide great color and atmosphere, and can be added as needed according to your room size. Good lighting for your retro party takes care of a good portion of your decorating needs. These light fixtures will never go out of style, and are a great, but small, investment. You'll be able to use them at a future Halloween party, and any time the mood to dance in your living room strikes! Kids love them, and baby boomers will find themselves transported back in time. 

Every groovy party needs a Lava Lamp. Add a floral ring of colorful daisies around the base to dress your lamp up for a formal event.

SPECIAL TOUCHES FOR YOUR 70s THEME

 Groovy 12

Groovy 12" Balloons

Tye Dye 12

Tye Dye 12" Balloons

 

Never underestimate the power of decorating with Balloons, as they can transform any size room into a cozy space in minutes at a very low cost. You need not use helium, and will save money using this tip. Inflate Groovy Balloons. Tie a 5-8 foot piece of Curling Ribbon to the end of each one. Using scotch tape, masking tape, or straight pins, hang balloons down from the ceiling so they hang at different lengths. Curl the loose end of the ribbon with scissors. 

 

Tie-dyeing was briefly very fashionable in the West in the late 1960s and early 1970s, as part of hippie style. You can get cheap muslin fabric, bedding (duvet or comforter) and tie dye them, as well as curtains, & etc to create a wonderful inexpensive room that fits the 60's period. If you are decorating a large area, garage, or sparsely decorated basement, drape tye-died fabric across ceilings or walls for a spectacular look.

Directions on how to tie-dye fabrics is available on the internet, a couple of my favorite links are:
