Travel back to a time of 1960s flower power with a festive Sixties party.
As guests enter the party area, they should be transported back in time. They should pass through long handmade strings of colorful beads (posted at the door) into a room lit only by lava lamps, and decorated with stick on wall appliqués depicting brightly colored flowers and dangling peace signs, homemade from tin foil or paper mache. The host also could put up posters of classic ‘60s rock groups; from the Beatles to the Turtles (groups with non-animal names, like the Doors, the Crystals, the Four Tops, etc., also are welcome:).
Guests can dance to the music of these and other sixties artists, and might even come dressed as their favorite; whether it’s Jim Morrison or Paul McCartney, Janis Joplin or Diana Ross. Others might opt for handmade (or at least hand dyed) tie-dyed shirts, bandanas and bell-bottom pants. Homemade floral wreathes, charm necklaces bearing peace signs, handmade bead necklaces, jewelry flowers and peace signs could add the ideal finishing touch to these costumes.
After the 1960s dance guests could sit down to enjoy a classic sixties film, like the Beatles’ “Help!”, “Bonnie and Clyde,” “Dr. Zhivago,” “Dr. Strangelove (Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb).” As they watch they can munch on homemade, all-natural goodies like whole wheat spice cake and trail mix.
Transport guests on a magical trip, back to the decade of love. Stage a 1960s party today! Peace out!
