I have a confession to make. I am obsessed with glitter and I think having a gold glitter themed party would be just awesome. Talk about bringing back your 70's mojo. I am now picturing gold lame shirts and the Bee Gees.
However, as we all know actual Martha Stewart style glitter is extremely messy (unless it's glued to a craft project) and most people would probably call the police if you actually sent them a party invitation with real glitter in the envelope. But that should not stop you from your 70's glam glitter shindig.
Here's a recipe for mixing up the perfect party.
Step 1 - The Invitations
Zazzle has a huge assortment of quality customizable invites that look like glitter. Notice there's no "real" messy glitter which will surely please your guests.
Step 2 - The Party Plates
Your party food will look like a million bucks on these awesome gold glitter plates.
Step 3 - The Gift: Give Your Guests A Gold Glitter Mug!
Your girls will love going home with a personalized gold glitter mug from you. Something to cherish that won't mess up their home.
It's pretty much no secret that the 70's were one of my favorite decades. I owned a Gong Show Reject t-shirt, was glued to Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley on the TV and loved Freddie Mercury like a brother, Oh and don't even get me started on my John Travolta crush. If you've got the same kind of groovy love for the 70's then it's time to host a party!
Luckily for you the Retro Girls (that's us) know a thing a two about hosting the perfect party. Here's a few tips for having the best 70's shindig on the planet!
