Disco parties can be funky and fun
March 30, 2010
There is some debate as to which decade of the millennium was the best. Some people believe it was the roaring '20s, when women would don flapper skirts and move to the Charleston. Others often pick the '50s, when poodle skirts were all the rage and the mashed potato was the dance of choice.
While we understand those selections, we are happy to announce that our favorite decade of all time was the '70s!
While the '70s was the time when those stylish bell bottom jeans and lengthy hairdos came to fruition, there is one standout feature of the era. Of course, we're talking about disco music.
We might not be able to jump into a time machine and travel back to this period, but we can always throw a disco party to have fun and make believe we're gettin' down old-school style.
If you choose to throw a disco party, you can begin by patting yourself on the back - there's no doubt the night will be one to remember. However, all good things must start somewhere, and disco parties must certainly commence with funky disco party invitations.
Disco invitations should be flashy and fun. Remember, this was a time when people really let their hair down. In this case, the crazier, the better.
Invitations should be multicolored and perhaps contain pictures of a jukebox or microphone. This is your chance to remind prospective guests that they are being asked to attend the party of a lifetime.
Once the invitations are sent out, get to work on disco party supplies. Paper cups, plates and napkins with disco themes on them should be laid out and available to guests as they enjoy finger food and tasty appetizers. Utensils baring words such as "groovy" and "funky" will be a winner with everyone.
Once that's taken care of, turn your attention to disco decorations. Don't forget, you simply cannot throw a fantastic party without them.
To start, make sure there is a disco ball in the room. The sparkly prop will add flair to the night and also make people feel like they're shaking their tail on an authentic '70s dance floor. If you're feeling daring, go ahead and put up a life-sized poster of John Travolta from Saturday Night Fever.
Also, disco light ups will take your party to another level. A glow-in-the-dark peace sign necklace or LED flashing sunglasses are fantastic handouts. Give them away, throw on a classic vinyl record and be prepared to boogie.
No matter what, make sure you tell your guests to wear a costume! Everyone loves dressing up (who doesn't get a kick out of Halloween?) and people will be incredibly excited to aquiese partake in this request. Once everyone gets together, the lights are turned down low and the music begins, you and all your party patrons will no doubt have one incredible experience.
