Have a psychedelic time with a disco party
June 08, 2010
Is there anything better than disco tunes? Whether you love to cut a rug or prefer to remain seated when the music gets going at a party, there's no denying that that songs from the 70s are some of the most beat-friendly sounds.
Considering one of the major factors of a memorable party is a wild dance floor, those who are considering throwing a shindig might want to steer their event towards a far out theme - the disco era.
Disco parties aren't difficult to plan, but they do take a little bit of time. If you set aside a few days and put your noggin to work, you're bound to wind up with an event that people of all personalities will dig.
To start, purchase a bunch of disco party invitations. These should really evoke images and themes of the famous decade.
The seventies were when the Jackson 5 really skyrocketed to fame. Wouldn't it be great to get an invitation with the talented brothers on it, each decked out in their bellbottom pants and wild hair? The move can be seen as both a funky way to get people excited as well as an tribute to the late Michael Jackson.
Also, Saturday Night Fever is one of the most infamous films to pay homage to the jivin' era. If you can find invites that have John Travolta or even a silhouette of that infamous Dance Fever pose, snag those up immediately.
Next, try to locate some incredible disco decorations. Purchasing the right ones will really help your guests get in the mood to boogie.
For starters, gold records undoubtedly remind people of this amazing decade. This was when Mowtown Records really got going, and artists such as Marvin Gaye, The Supremes and Stevie Wonder accrued huge sales for the company. So, if you can get your hands on a bunch of faux-multi-platinum records and place them around the venue, go for it.
Finally, start thinking about some seriously amazing disco party supplies. A disco ball is completely necessary, and there are also other humorous additions party planners can buy. For example, wouldn't it be great to do your friends a solid and purchase a disco ball piñata? Once the shindig starts wrapping up, feel free to hang it up and let everyone go crazy trying to break it to pieces. Of course, if you want to go a more simpler route, disco light-ups always work wonders.
Planning a disco party may take a few days, but the payoff will be huge. After everyone has their fill of spectacular appetizers, great drinks and burns off hundreds of calories dancing the night away, you can guarantee they'll be excited for any event you plan in the future. When you send your next invitation in the mail you will truly be able to say "Be There or Be Square."
