Have a groovy evening with a super 60s party
May 19, 2010
There's no doubt that this decade is bound to be an exciting one. Future generations are going to remember this era for the iPhone, fashion that included leggings and Ugg boots, and the return of teen pop artists. Still, wouldn't it be nice to turn back the hands of time and experience a night in the 60s?
The 60s had it all, including fantastic music and amazing trends. And while most of us would look silly walking the streets in bellbottom jeans while carrying a boom box on our shoulders, there's still a way to experience this decade firsthand. With a super 60s party, of course!
To get your event going and prove you were born to be wild, make sure you stock up on 60s decorations. These can include banners that have words such as "groovy" adorned on them, or streamers that are tie-dyed and colorful. The décor will have your guests waiting until the midnight hour - or longer - to go home.
Next, don't forget to stock up on 60s party supplies. These will really help your guests get into the party spirit and prepare themselves to have a blast.
For starters, consider buying necklaces that have the peace sign on them and handing them out to everyone. Even those who aren't a fan of little trinkets may be able to indulge and give peace a chance.
Also, there's one music instrument that's synonymous with the 60s - a tambourine! Try purchasing a bunch in bulk and offering them everyone. People will be able to create their own music and twist and shout the night away.
Also, 60s paper goods are a must. Every party must have food, and if you don't have paper plates, cups and utensils out and about, your guests may turn a whiter shade of pale!
Consider stocking up on some place settings that call attention to the fabulous decade. Supplies that have phrases such as "Blast from the Past" or even "Woodstock '69" will work wonders.
To put the finishing touches on the preparations for your shindig, try finding a bunch of 60s party extras. These additional details will really bring the party to another level.
Hippies were huge during this decade, so groovy accessories are sure to be a hit. Try finding bandanas and place them out and about. Everyone is bound to pick them up and put them on.
Also, who can forget the term "Flower Power?" Buy a bunch of plush daisies and give them out to guests. If you see your teen angel staring at you from across the room, make sure you give one to them.
Planning the ultimate 60s party isn't difficult, and it only takes a little bit of work to make sure your shindig comes together. After it's over, everyone will have heard through the grapevine that it was a true success.
