Did you miss the dawning of the Age of Aquarius and wish you could go back in time? Here’s your chance. Hold a retro theme party that lets you live, at least temporarily, in the 60s and 70s, a time when everything was far out and people caught you on the flip side. Or relive the era if you were around the first time, wearing bell-bottom jeans and and a tie-dyed shirt. It’s a great way to celebrate a milestone birthday. At Shindigz, you’ll find everything you need have a groovy time, whether you’re planning a gala or a small get-together. Start your planning with making sure you have the proper lighting – a black light or disco ball is practically required. Strategically placed spot lights are a great touch, too.
Set the stage for a gala with one of our party theme kits, available in three sizes and packed with required décor such as a VW Bug, a hippie bus and flower power galore. The pieces also are sold separately if you’re working with a smaller space or want additional items to carry your theme throughout the room. Balloon bouquets with that omnipresent symbol of the era, the smiley face, also are a great touch. Add tie-dye gossamer as backdrop or use it to cover tables or accent chairs. A solid tablecloth, sprinkled with smiley face or peace sign confetti, will carry out your theme spectacularly, too. Either way, you’ll create a look party-goers won’t soon forget. Skip place settings and place peace sign beam necklaces or bracelets on the tables, letting your décor double as a favor.
