Arranging a 70s party
From groovy disco clubs blasting Abba, the Bee Gees, Gloria Gaynor, and Donna Summer to huge bell bottoms, plaids, leisure suits, and the “Farrah Mane”, the 70s were an amazing decade. Today, the 70s is the perfect theme for an outrageously fun and crazy party that everyone will enjoy. From twinkling disco balls, “far out” decorations, Peaches & Herb or Lionel Richie on the record player, and polyester dresses and leisure suits , the decade was a time for exploration, discovery, and great parties. Now, you can recapture the fun of the 70s with your own disco party. Here are some 70s disco party ideas that you can use to plan a party everyone will be talking about for years.
Party Invitations for Older Folk
A fun and creative invitation is an absolute must to set your party’s mood. Here are a few ideas to choose from:
Disco and Skates: In the 70s, if you were not hanging out at the disco, you could be found at the skating rink.
Disco Ball Invitation: Simple, yet fun. Just customize the invite with your information.
Disco Theme Caricature Invitation: These amazing invites are drawn by talented artists to your specifications. They will definitely catch your guest’s attention.
Disco Guy or Girl: Add a caricature face or photo to these 70s dance bods and customize with your party info.
For an added touch, attach your party info to a smiley face beanbag or cuddly plush and hand deliver them to guests. You will absolutely catch their attention.
If you are a really creative person and have the time, why not find some of the 70s beloved 8track tapes and attach labels with your party info on the back of the tape? Everyone will love them, but you’ll have to get creative to find 8tracks. Searching online and hitting up local garage sales are your best bet.
The 70s had their own slang that is perfect for wording a 70s themed invitation.

It’s not a 70s party without the right clothes, so instruct your guests to come dressed in their 70s best. From the infamous leisure suit to gigantic bell bottoms, big belts with even bigger buckles, and polyester wrap dresses with crazy patterns, there are plenty of options. You can also opt to have them come dressed as their favorite 70s character, such as Marsha or Greg Brady, Mary Tyler Moore, Shaggy and Scooby, the Partridge Family, George Jefferson, Starsky and Hutch, Ponch, Kojack, and Fred or Lamont Sanford. There is definitely no shortage of great characters to choose from.
