April 12, 2012
Think disco theme parties went out of style with leisure suits and hot pants? Well think again! A disco theme party is perfect for a birthday celebration, a charity event, a Halloween party, or just a fun night out with friends. So put on your favorite paisley pants and get ready to plan a 70s soiree that your friends will never forget!
Your friends will be thrilled when they receive their personalized disco invitation and will be left wondering what gems from the past you’ll dig up to entertain your guests on the night of the party. Won’t they be surprised when they walk into your party space to see how you’ve transformed your home into a 70’s nightclub? With our selection of disco party decorations you’ll find everything you need to make your guests feel like they’ve hopped in a time machine and traveled back to the heyday of Studio 54 for a rocking good time! Request that your guests arrive in the finest 70’s fashions. Bell-bottoms, leisure suits, bright scarves, tie-dyed shirts, and tube tops are all acceptable attire for the party. Be sure to pick a fun disco party favor to hand out as a prize to the best-dressed guest!
Of course the centerpiece of your nightclub scene will be your disco ball hanging from the ceiling! After all, what disco is complete without a disco ball? Set up a dance floor for your guests to show off their dance skills and plan a dance contest to see which of your friends can do the best Hustle! Be sure you’ve loaded up the MP3 player with popular music from the 70s so that your guests can dance the night away, showing off their moves and channeling their inner John Travolta and Donna Summers.
To complete the 70s theme, check out the rest of our disco party decorations to see what else you can find transform your home into the ultimate 70s nightclub. A couple rolls of disco night scene setters will help make the transformation complete, making your walls look like a fabulous disco scene. Add a few of our disco dancer add-ons and your guests will think they are right in the middle of a disco dance off!
When you’re throwing a disco theme party you’ll have to consider the food your serving as well as your disco decorations. Fondue parties were a huge hit back in the day, so why not bring the tradition back? Cheese fondue makes for a fun appetizer, and of course, chocolate fondue is the best dessert alternative! To encourage mingling, set fondue pots with different dipping foods at various tables and let guests choose which station to start at and where they would like to eat next. Be sure you have plenty of 70s Disco Party Napkins at each table, as fondue can get a little messy, and even though polyester is know for repelling stains, your guests will still want to stay neat!
Decorate your tables with a fun 70s disco dancer centerpiece and hang some disco ball whirls from the ceiling to add a fun atmosphere. Add a black light to the room to set the stage and help your friends remember just what it was like to truly party back in the 70s!
And speaking of setting the mood for the 70s, if you think your friends won’t want to dance the entire night away, why not let them watch some of their favorite shows from the era? Set up a television and let them watch classic episodes of “Happy Days,” “Mork and Mindy,” and “Mary Tyler Moore.” Or you can play movies from the 70s like “Jaws,” “Star Wars,” and everyone’s favorite “Saturday Night Fever.”
The possibilities for party favors are endless when you are throwing a disco theme party! You can make a pet rock for each of your guests to take home at the end of the night. Or, present each guest with a mirror ball disco necklace when they arrive to help them get into the disco mood. You could also send each guest home with their own disco party music CD so they can keep practicing their disco dance moves after the party is over!
While a disco theme party might not be the first idea that pops into your head when you’re trying to plan a fun night for your friends, with these creative ideas, everyone, whether they were experienced the 70s the first time around or not, will have a rocking good time at your party and want to know when you’re planning your next disco theme party! And you can be sure everyone will be Hustling their way home to practice their dance moves so they can dance the night away at your next dance party!
