Throwing an anniversary bash, a bachelorette, or a reunion? Really any party can be made into a fantastic and fun ode to a decade. Whichever decade you choose, there are four essential elements to success and Essence of Events, LLC can point you in the right direction. The most obvious and perhaps the most important element in a decade party is the fashion! The 50s are known for poodle skirts, greasers, and varsity jackets, think Grease.
The 60s is known for its hippies! So embrace your inner flower child and rock a boldly patterned outfit.
Have you ever seen Saturday Night Fever? Then you know the 70s is all about disco!
Big hair, brightly colored spandex, valley girls and Miami Vice characterize the iconic 80s.
Whichever decade you choose, popular music from that era is a must! Some simple googling will help you create a mix that will get your guests out of their seats and onto the dance floor. The King of Rock & Roll stole the show in the 50s, but other popular singers were Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, and Doris Day.
The 60s was a time of British Invasion with such artists as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds.
The 80s saw a new use of synthesizers and other non-traditional instruments and rap was particularly popular in the latter half of the decade. Some of the most popular musical stars were Michael Jackson, Madonna, Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, and Run D.M.C.
Of course it is essential to include decade themed décor at your event. Rent a jukebox, paste bright flowers and peace signs all over the walls, or throw up a disco ball. Whatever you do, make sure it is true to your decade and that it is fun. And lastly, if possible, theme the food of your event to your decade. Like malts and burgers for the 50s!
