The eighties was a decade of fun and laughter; plan the ultimate 1980s arcade eighties party today!
Guests at an 1980s arcadeeighties party could adorn themselves in outfits appropriate to the time. Ladies could dust off their homemade leg warmers, headbands and dangly fluorescent bracelets, while the guys could paint on some Miami Vice-style stubble and wear jackets in hues they’d never dream of wearing today. Time for the dudes to put on the pink and plaster on the purple!
Dancing is a must at an 1980s arcade Eighties party; guests can entertain each other with their renditions of dances like the Thriller and the Robot. Song choices should be lively and danceable, featuring the music of eighties legends like Duran Duran, Prince, Madonna and Michael Jackson. The host also could screen movies that people commonly identify with the decade, such as “Flashdance,” “Dirty Dancing,” “Lethal Weapon,” and “Beverly Hills Cop.” The younger set might enjoy “The Breakfast Club,” “Home Alone” or “Adventures in Babysitting.”
Predominating colors at an Eighties party should be lively and blindingly vivid, as displayed in ruby red, fluorescent pink and shiny gold banners, streamers and ribbons, all handmade. As an ice breaker, each guest could do his/her best Moonwalk, or imitate Macaulay Culkin’s signature yell from “Home Alone.” Then they could sit down to enjoy homemade variations on snack cakes, cheese curls and “pick a mix” candy; treats commonly served at an Eighties-era party.
Who doesn’t love the eighties, baby? Transport your guests to a brighter, more innocent time with a rollicking Eighties party!
