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!
Pick The Perfect 70s Party Invitations
Getting your guests through the front door should be the first thing on your 70's party to-do list and that means sending out a personalized party invitation. Luckily the amazing folks at Zazzle have a super selection of fully customizable 70's party invites. Here's just a few to choose from.
Party Like It's 1978
This is your chance to shine the the 70's sun. Create a decor palette that will wow your guests. Here are just a few 70's party themes you can try or mix and match for an even groovier look.
Disco Parlor Party Theme - Create a disco den with faux shag carpet, beaded curtains and (of course) a disco ball. You can even serve your food on disco plates!
Hard Rockin' 70's Party - This is a super simple party idea (no decoration necessary). Have everyone come in their favorite 70's band t-shirt. Give out prizes for the best tee.
Have a Tiki Party - Go Hawaiian with some Tiki wear and decor. Be creative with your food too. Pineapple Smoothies are a must as are Tiki Posters!
