50’s Rock ‘N Roll Party Theme

There was a whole lot of shakin’ going on as 50’s feet donned their blue suede shoes, and rocked around the clock to their favourite unchained melodies. The first, and probably most innocent of the rock and roll decades, fabulous 50’s rock and roll is still one of the most popular party themes. It’s super-easy to find great music, it’s a fun and dazzling theme to decorate, and a dream to dress up for. Everyone loves to shake, rattle and (50’s rock n’) roll.

60’s Hippie Themed Party

Channel the vibes of peace, love and tie-dyed harmony with a 60’s hippie party theme. Flower power was groovy baby. Incredibly colourful people were celebrating love not war as they challenged ‘the man’ and the status quo. You can have a whole party centered around the famous Woodstock music festival. All you need to do is decorate and dress in a flurry of fluro, rainbow colours and peace signs for a truly psychedelic 60’s atmosphere. It’s safe to say 60’s hippie parties are still, and probably always will be one of the most popular party themes. Can you dig it?

70’s Disco Party Theme

70’s disco is one of the most iconic eras. As a hugely popular party theme, we still play that funky music for a non stop disco inferno that is ‘stayin alive today. It was stylish, it was glitzy, it infiltrated dance floors, roller rinks and the silver screen. It was mirror balls, sequins, flares and afro’s. What’s not to love? Of course we’re excited to recreate the disco scene at our parties today - with all the exuberance, excess, and enthusiasm of 70’s.

80’s Retro Party Theme

The 80’s meant so many different things to so many different people. It was a game-changing decade. Many say, the golden decade. One thing everyone can agree on though, is that it was BIG. Big hair, big makeup, big shoulder pads, BIG music and BIG personalities. 80’s retro party themes are still one the BIGGEST for those who want to cut footloose and grease those dancing shoes for a colourful, 80’s retro extravaganza.

Casino Themed Parties

Is there anything more shiny than the glitz and glamour of a sparkling casino party? Still one of the world’s favourite themes, casino parties can be centered around vegas, gangsters and flappers, high rollers, or all of the above. Guests can roll the dice at a little blackjack or roulette, sip cocktails stylishly as they mingle, or hit the jackpot on the dance floor. Casino themed parties are always fun, forever interactive, and bound to be a hit.

“No, I don’t want to escape to a tropical oasis.” said no-one ever! Hawaiian party themes are extremely popular, and we can see why. Great music, colourful decorations, easy dress ups, tasty tropical-inspired food and drinks...It’s fun for the whole family. One of the most loved cultures of the world, Hawaii is bright, relaxed and beautiful, every day is a beach party. The awesome thing is, it’s relatively easy to recreate the Hawaiii scene in a party setting, and enjoy a fabulous Luau with great friends and family.
