Take a trip to a brighter, happier time with a rockin’ 80s party!
Brightly colored suits, lots of hairspray and heavy makeup would typify the costumes at an 80s party; and that’s just for the male guests! Indeed, guests of both genders should illuminate themselves for an 80s party; whether the guest is a young man going for a David Bowie or Simon LeBon look, or a girl who yearns to be Madonna or Annie Lennox, they should cake on the spray, makeup, spiffy threads, and homemade sparkly jewelry for the event.
Dancing is a must at an 80s party; but as this was a visual decade, the host might consider playing music videos on an overhead screen as opposed to broadcasting audio CDs. Song choices should be bouncy and upbeat, including 80s classics like “Hungry Like the Wolf” by Duran Duran, “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go” by Wham, “Sweet Dreams” by Eurythmics, “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya” by Culture Club and “Holiday” by Madonna. For another entertainment option, the host could screen movies like “The Wedding Singer,” which captures the 80s perfectly, or a genuine 80s classic like “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” or “Pretty in Pink.”
Predominating colors at an 80s party should be bright and vivid, expressed in ruby red, fluorescent pink and shiny gold banners, streamers and ribbons, preferably handmade. Party favors, served up in homemade fiber or tissue bags, could include Rubik’s Cube keychains, “Miami Vice”-style sunglasses and other treats.
Return to a brighter, happier time with a rollicking 80s party. Save Ferris!!!
