Michael Jackson’s death on June 25th, has prompted many fans, new and old, to take another look at the life and music of this beloved and controversial performer. Why not gather your friends and family around for a Michael Jackson Tribute Party that’s sure to be a great time?
Get out your Michael Jackson CD’s or create a playlist and dance to the songs of the King of Pop. Here are our tips for Michael Jackson party decorations:
Since Jackson’s career spanned four decades, your party can highlight the changes in era and genre by incorporating Motown, Disco and 80’s decorations into your event.
Our party supplies like Gangster Fedora Hats, sunglasses, disco balls, and even Chimpanzee Standees (Remember Jackson’s pet Bubbles?) and Zombie Standees (for Thriller!) evoke the sensation of Jackson’s spectacular career.
Welcome guests to your party with a Disco Vinyl Banner, personalized with your custom wording. The bright colored banner is printed on heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl and makes a great keepsake from your event. Our Musical Note Vinyl Banner is another great choice.
Create a focal point for your party decorations using our Giant Record Standee. Each standee is 6 feet in diameter and made out of corrugated cardboard.
Have our Personalized Record Wall Graphics printed with your favorite Jackson songs and place them around your party space!
Create a base for more specific Michael Jackson party supplies by adding musical notes all over! Put Music Note Cutouts on your walls or suspend them with fishing wire from the ceiling. Add balloon bunches of our music note latex balloons accented with music note mylar balloons.
Next, decorate your party tables, cover them with black, red, or silver plastic table covers or floral sheeting and add a coordinating or contrasting wavy metallic tableskirt and coordinating plastic tableware. Our Dancin’ Party Ensemble (pictured above) is a fun tableware option that coordinates with the feel of the Jackson 5 years. Be sure to add plenty of confetti or sparkle powder to your tables.
Create a dance floor for your party by covering the are intended for dancing with black and white checkerboard flat paper. Add some sparkle powder, twinkle lights, and a disco ball for a really fantastic look.
You could add our Starry Horizon Boarder and Crescent Moon Mylar Balloons too, to encourage the Moonwalk! Have a dance contest for the best Jackson impersonation or best overall dancing!
Really encourage guests to get into the mood for the party by handing out Fedora Hats and white gloves as they arrive (You only need one pair of gloves for every two guests!). Ask guests to come dressed to fit their favorite time period in Michael Jackson’s career and primed for fun like voting on their favorite Michael Jackson video (watch a few), dancing like a zombie to Thriller (use our Zombie Silhouettes to decorate if you’re having this contest!), or battling it out in a Michael Jackson trivia contest. You could even wear one of our Afro Wigs!
