A retro 70s party is a great theme to start your party off on the right foot. Use fun colors, a retro theme, and fond memories to create a party that is totally rock and roll! Food and drinks can include a fruit and cheese cube bar and pineapple upside down cake. You can even have a make-your-own ice cream float bar for a more adult twist on rocking and roll.
If you’d prefer a more casual environment, try organizing a scavenger hunt based on the guest of honor’s favorite places. The team that reaches the guest of honor’s favorite restaurant first wins. Another game that guests can play is 40 Years of Trivia. Collect 40 pieces of trivia about the guest of honor. Have each guest guess the correct answers and the person with the most correctly answered questions wins a prize!
To create a retro-style theme, choose a time period. For example, if the birthday boy or girl is a huge fan of classic Hollywood movies, he or she might enjoy an old-fashioned, ’40s-themed party.’ Use the same theme in decorations and music to create a memorable celebration. Color coordination will also help create an organized look. If the birthday boy or girl likes pastel colors, consider buying colored glasses for the party.
