80s Party

80s Party Games



We had an 80s party last March that was a lot of fun.

For the decorations, I printed out all sorts of 80's images from Google of singers, bands, movies, cartoon characters, sports stars, toys, etc.. I posted them all over our house and I also got a bunch of 80's records and hung them from the ceiling. I pulled out all of my old 80's toys and trinkets such as my Rubik's Cube, Smurfs, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Simon Says, Atari, floppy disks, etc. and used these as decorations.

In addition, I made some posters where I posed questions to our guests as to what their favorite song, movie, band, and memory was from the 80's. They had to write their answer on the poster board. Of course, we had 80s music going as well.

For the food, I made and decorated a record cake that said "You spin Me Right Round Baby..." on it. We had our guests bring their favorite 80's food such as Pop Rocks Candy, Doritos, Pudding Pops, etc... We also had 80's drinks such as Fresca and Kool Aid. I was able to find neon cups, plates, napkins, and silverware, and tablecloth to go along with the theme.

All of our guests arrived at our 80s party dressed in their favorite 80's clothes. I wound up finding an ugly 80's puffy sleeved prom dress at a second-hand store and my husband found an appropriate Ghostbusters t-shirt at Walmart and he also rolled up his jeans and found his old jean jacket with all the pins all over it. Other guests had rolled up jeans, huge hair, jelly bracelets, jelly shoes, neon colored shirts, etc...

For fun, we played several games. One of the games we played was a "Guess the 80's t.v. show theme song". We played a theme song from an 80's t.v. show and people had to write down what show they remembered it from. Also, one of our guests brought the 100,000 Pyramid DVD Game and so we played that as well. In addition, another guest brought the Sing Star 80s DVD game in which you sing 80's songs into a microphone and you're judged on how well you sing the songs. It was absolutely hilarious! We also had the 80's Trivial Pursuit game, but we didn't have time for it.

Overall, our guests had a great time and I was singing 80's tunes for the rest of the week!

80s Skating Party

For my 12th b-day everyone came dressed in 80's clothing and we went rollerblading. Then we came back the house and had a dance party.

by: Amanda

OMG!!! I'm turning 14 and I freaking love this idea! It's so awesome. I didn't grow up in the 80s but a lot of my friends (including me) listen to 80s music and the 80s are coming back.

I Want an 80s Party Too
by: Danielle

I want my party to be like Miley Cyrus's party for her 15th party. It was so cool, but my friend won't come and I really want him to come.

It will have a big cake and dance floor too and my friends will be there and we will have a DJ.

Everyone has to wear 80's clothes. It's going to be the bomb!
