Seventies music is great but to make the party more special is by including seventies theme parties supplies and costumes. Include seventies tableware items, scene setters (perhaps the party is geared towards a disco theme), strobe lights and disco balls. Hang posters and cut outs of various 70s icons as well. A box can serve a dual purpose by first being able to hold supplies, but also be decorated on the outside for decor use. Don't be hesitant about asking parents to help out at a celebration for children. With a little imagination and white poster board, crayons, coloring pencils, tape, staples and printed photo images that can be cut, kids can create their own paper hats.

Throwing a seventies 1970s party for someone in their seventies may seem a little too easy, but you’ll be surprised at how much fun everyone has and even the guest of honor will get into the 1970s groove, so to speak. This can easily turn into a 1970s costume party and in fact many people show up to these era parties in costume just because. This can be a great way to get everyone into having a good time rather than just sitting around the birthday cake.

Start by setting up a party area with enough room to dance around in. Also try scattering around a few inflatable guitars. Any seventies party needs dancing, which means you will also need to get some good music from this era of disco as well. You can even have a dance competition. Have guests get into groups of two or just have them do some disco dancing by themselves. Award dance floor prizes to the best dancers by the loudest applause. After all this work out the guests will want to feast on some treats and you can provide it on tables decorated with seventies themed paper supplies. This exciting celebration is the perfect 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 the addition of delicious foods 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 celebrated event. Whether it is a classic yellow smiley face or a ‘70s’ boldly emblazoned across a black or purple background it will provide the extra decoration needed for your themed buffet table.

To add to the theme at the table add a few foods that were available or popular during the seventies. Punch made with Tang is fun and Chiclets and pop rocks will make great goodie bags fillers. For those guests who do not come to the party in costume you can have some fun wigs and headbands on hand to pass out. Dig that groovy afro! You can also hand out seventies themed temporary tattoos and stickers for the guests to take home or use at the party.

Time to break out the 1970s platform shoes and tall mens hairdos it is time to bring back the seventies. This is going to be one of those parties where you will have the chance to take a step back in time and watch as the new generation steps in to a moment in history, sees how their parents got down, had fun and what dancing was to them back in the day.

If you are looking at throwing a party for someone that enjoyed those days, make sure that you get plenty of pictures and memorabilia of that person and from their life directly, these often times make great 1970s themed gifts, and slide shows during the party.

Most people are amazed at the history behind many celebrations and how music from the past and present will add to the event. Like other get togethers this small addition will add a great deal to the celebration. For this reason,guests of the party will find this celebration to be a lot of fun and very special. If you are running low on ideas for a seventies themed party that is for someone celebrating someone in their life, be sure that you include a roast in your party. If this is going to be, or is intended to be a surprise party a roast is often a big surprise, and very humbling to the guest of honor. Having people throughout their moments in history come forward and talk about their lives and moments together will often take them down memory lane, and saving the disk of the slide show all together combined will stay with them forever. Gather up some leftover brown packing boxes, wrap them in a matching theme color design and place them throughout the event space for instant decorations.
