Do-It-Yourself Retro Party Idea

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!

Fun Decor Idea for retro parties

Bowl made from 33 1/3 records Records



Here is a fun way to decorate for your music theme. These containers made from 33 1/3 records can be used as a serving dish or turn them upside down and use as a base for a centerpiece. Some ideas for using them include:
  • Use record bowls to serve snacks or as a candy dish.
  • Place a glass cylinder vase with floating candle on top & decorate with a floral ring.
  • Place a pillar candle on top and add a floral ring.
  • Stack & glue them together to make an elevated base for your vase or candle.
  • Place a hurricane globe on top and add a floral ring.
  • Get creative! You will be amazed at what you can come up with.

Retro Table Decoration Ideas

In the picture to the left, we used the record bowl to create a centerpiece for a retro theme wedding reception. We glued a flat record to the top of the upside down record bowl (creating a surface to set a bubble bowl on top). We added a fuchsia & pink floral ring and a floating candle. 33 1/3 records were used as charger plates and yoyo's were placed on the top of the napkins for favors.

Bowl  Directions:

Don't have a collection of old 33 1/3 records to work with like I do. Start by visiting thrift shops and antique shops, ask friends and family for old records (make sure the record is not valuable before you melt it down).

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Place record over a Pyrex or oven proof glass bowl (use a bowl that is large enough that the record can melt over it). Place bowl and record in the oven for 2 - 5 minutes. It is ready to remove as soon as the record has taken the shape of the bowl. Be careful when removing the bowl from the oven the glass bowl will be hot. The record will not be to hot. Let sit for about a minute then remove the record from the glass bowl.
