Travel back to a time of peace and activism with a 60s Retro party.

Education could be a central focus of any 60s Retro party. This was, after all, a time of activism; guests can conduct Internet research about their favorite causes, including anti-war, equal rights and civil rights themes, also researching the historical luminaries, like Martin Luther King Jr., Gloria Steinem and John F Kennedy, that championed these causes.

On a lighter note, guests at a 60s Retro party can dance to period party music from popular groups such as the Doors, the Beatles and the Supremes.

The decorations of a 60s Retro party should evoke a real feel for the time period, complete with tie-dyed wall art (preferably handmade), pictures of ‘60s historical figures and entertainers, and homemade signs bearing 60s catch phrases like “No nukes,” “Give peace a chance,” and “Make love, not war.”

Encourage guests to come dressed in store bought or homemade wigs (paper, cotton or fabric) as well as tie-dyed shirts, jeans, and handmade bandanas. Homemade floral wreathes, charm necklaces bearing popular ‘60s symbols, like jewelry flowers and peace signs, and bead necklaces could add a sharp accent to any of these costumes, as would flowered or beaded purses or John Lennon-style round sunglasses.

As an icebreaker at a 60s Retro party, each guest could state their favorite song or social cause from that period; then sit down Indian style (perhaps on a beanbag chair alongside a lava lamp) to eat a homemade butter cream cake in the shape of the numbers “60.” Cupcakes, wafers and cookies, also homemade, could boast this symbol, or could be shaped in the likenesses of peace signs. Truck on back to a fun, relevant time with a 60s Retro party. Peace out!
