A Disco party is a great way to relive the disco era with fellow disco lovers. Singing, dancing and having a great time with family and friends is what most celebrations are supposed to be like. Therefore, finding the right melodies and tunes for those special events is very important. From rock and country to jazz and blues, getting together with friends and celebrating great times or special events will make your event very popular. A Disco party, with disco party supplies, could not exists without a large list of favorite disco era songs such as Stayin’ Alive by The Bee Gees, Y.M.C.A. by The Village People, MacArthur Park by Donna Summer (anything by Donna Summer), Do The Hustle by Van McCoy, That’s The Way I Like It by K.C. & The Sunshine Band, Le Freak by Chic, I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor, Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground) by The Jacksons, Knock on Wood by Amii Stewart and many many more. Keep the disco party going all night with a long playlist from early Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and Rick James. There are hundreds of quality disco tunes to select from so the dancing should continue all night long and then some. A Disco party could not be complete without a disco ball, lights, disco clothes, and willing participates to get their groove on. Include old 70’s movie posters and images of famous disco dancers such as John Travolta. With all the disco garb in place everyone will have a great time disco time. Line wicker baskets with colorful cloth napkins that can be matched to a theme, while being used to serve food or hold things like utensils. With a spool of ribbon you can, tie napkins and dinnerware with a bow, make curly streamers, tie ribbon around chairs, add accents to floral arrangements, just go as far as your creativity will take you. Decorations help transform a room into something more for that special day so look forward to learning some exciting and creative ideas.

Throwing a disco themed party with disco party supplies and decorations makes for fun times. Sensational get-togethers often involve designing and preparing in advance for the occasion. Most often color arrangements and other needed supplies will add to the celebration and make a great addition to the event. Nearly all hosts will find that fun décor and color schemes are the perfect perks for the event. This addition will give the get together a really cool appearance. It is easy to purchase everything for a party but that is no fun. Invite fellow disco lovers by making homemade party invitations. Use fun disco colors and font when creating the disco invitations. Do not forget to tell guests to dress up in 70s attire. Welcome guests with a handmade disco banner to hang in the dance area. Hang a beaded curtain over the doors entrance.

Other homemade disco party supplies include printing out disco dancers and hang around the party area. No disco party is truly complete without the disco ball. A handmade disco ball is very simple and fun to make. Include lava lamps, black lights, strobe lights, fog machine, and incense candles to the party’s décor as well. Hire a DJ to play disco themed music all night long (budget permitting).

Handmade disco party supplies may also include dressing up furniture in 70s patterns and colors. Research different patterns of the decade and cover modern furniture in old school fabric. When throwing a party, of any theme, go all the way, do not skimp on on sending a few bucks and making homemade party supplies.


There are two things that a disco themed party should have in their party supplies, cake and decoration – a lot of color and shimmer! This exciting event is the ideal time for creative desserts and other party foods designed especially for this celebration. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often fun like cakes that are designed especially for this celebration will make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these great party foods and desserts will add a lot of fun to the special event. From colorful streamers to the beautiful shiny disco ball that everyone recognizes, you can get the disco look with realizing a few ideas.

First, create a cake that is either in the shape of a disco ball, has flowing color all throughout the cake or even make a cake that has a pair of platform shoes on it. A cake at a party, especially a birthday party, is a main focal point so put a lot of thought into it.

You will defiantly need a disco ball; and preferably one that turns. Disco balls that turn produce more color and more excitement. If you cannot get a gold of one that turns, be sure to get light that moves or simply many different light sources.

Remember that disco theme parties are all about having fun and dancing. Be sure to have a dance floor that is large enough for everyone and safe to dance on. Make sure it is free of debris as well as things that people could trip over.

Finally, most hosts should make sure they have plenty to drink and a variety of other treats for the guests. Some disco theme party supplies such as cups with record designs, disco ball designs and more are all a nice touch to create a party that will never be forgotten.

When was the last time you attended a Disco Party. If you want to jump up with the beat, call out for a Disco Party of your own. It can be a very interesting event that you can provide for your family and friends. It would require you to think on different things that you can offer to make this party a huge success. A lot of people make a mistake of not doing their homework well and not looking at the different options that could have been much better than others, so from this we can learn that just believe in your ingenuity. From making a guest list to preparing the food, having a plan will make the celebration go off without a hitch. Simple hostess tip: Prepare for the entire celebration in advance and avoid adding any extra commitments or stress on the hostess during the preparation period. This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration.

You can start by listing down a general format for your Disco party, like what are the different ideas that you would need for your party invitations and who are the guests you would be inviting. There is a general consensus that you must always call the people at the Disco Party who you know and do not call the people who you don’t. This is being said because the guests at the Disco Party are going to get drunk and the situation at times just seem to get out of control with the ones who you don’t know.

Once you have listed your guests for the Disco Party, you are going to find that things have started to fall in place. The next thing that you need to do is to design the dance floor with the ball hanging in the center. It would be pretty good if you set lights at angles that would just make the ball glow perfectly. Apart from your dance floor the lights should be dim so that the dance floor area becomes the focus of attention and get the best Disco Party songs to make your guests rock. To say the least, for this party you just need to focus on how you are going to provide your guests with the best time and when you are successful, they will ask you to throw another party soon.
