Back to the 80’s

Looking for an amazing party idea? LOOK NO FURTHER! The 80’s are back! Check out this fantastic party & all the details!

The 80’s party I put together with all the small details needed to have a TOTALLY RAD experience!

Invites went out…

First thing is first, we have to decorate! I went to Party City and grabbed tons of streamers stuff, backdrops & signs! I also went to the dollar store looking for streamers, but party city had bright colors and that was necessary for the 80s!

I used the I LOVE the 80’s backdrop for the bar area:


The bar area had all the bells and whistles including Vodka Infused Gummi Bears, Custom Drinks & Signature drinks!


No party is complete without the most amazing custom napkins as well! Personalized Napkins are the best & I highly recommend them.  Look at the fabulous 80’s ones we had made from the amazing Napkins Personalized:


Outside we had a table filled with light up bracelets, 80’s shades, neon bracelets, neon silly string and more! I just went to the craft store, grabbed some bright paint and painted a cute sign.  Super easy and makes a cute display!


Now onto one of my favorite things! The dessert table!!! We used tons of streamers, laterns, tissue balls and hanging streamers to make a rad background.  After that, we 80-a-fied it! Check out all the details below:


Court’s Torts (out of Tinley Park, IL) did the most amazing 80’s cookies I have ever seen! They tasted yummy too! The MTV & Smurf ones turned out simply outstanding!

Harriet’s House of Cakes had BY FAR the best cake toppers (edible fondant) I have ever seen in my life! They we’re absolutely perfect! 11800140_10206467676444612_8029237050641351218_n

Whatchawant designs makes super cute birthday boards! They are not wood boards, they are like a thick posterboard.  They last well for the party & makes an amazing photo prop! Check out this awesome board she made:


No party is complete without balloons! All of the amazing balloons were filled by Balloon Time.  Make sure you fill the balloons about 1-  3 hours before the event.  They were all on the floor the next morning.. so don’t do ahead of  time.  I love balloons and love having them in all the rooms at events!

All the small details are the absolute best! The plates were from Totally Promotional & I couldn’t possibly say enough about them.  They have the best customer service and their products and amazing! We had koozies & custom plates from Totally Promotional.  The koozies are great because it’s also an extra favor for everyone to take home! Check them out!
