should I send the invitations out?
If you're making it a requirement that guests
dress up 1970's disco style for the party - which we highly recommend
for the full effect, then you'll want to send the invitations out
6 to 8 weeks before the big event.
you were employed by DressThatMan.com - it would seem crazy NOT
to dress in retro apparel for DISCO PARTY! No... wait. Not "SEEM"
crazy... it would BE crazy because it would defy our very existence.
Anyone showing up in street clothes to our party would either be
polyesterized upon appearance, or... booted from the premises.
about us - back to you...
to 8 weeks lead time will give your guests enough time to get together
their disco outfits ...of course, if your guests have no idea about
how to dress up in that 70's way, you might want to put together
a list of web sites to help them. Or, copy pictures of some clothing
from the 1970's and send them along with the invitations.
you might imagine - it's mandatory that you notify all men attending
the party to buy leisure suits, disco shirts, flares or bellbottom
disco pants from, guess who - none other than your mens 70s clothes
And tell em we've got the good stuff, man. Plus, guys can
learn how to dress up in seventies fashion by visiting our site.
Now onto the ideas for the
disco party itself!
to a successful disco party is the disco ball. You'll need a
pin spot light (or two) aimed at it while it hangs from the ceiling
in the room your guests are dancing in. No respectable disco party
would go without this key element. Disco balls in varying sizes
can be ordered in kits complete with spot lights.
section of our site for disco lighting, lava lamps and more.
Groovy cool stuff cheap.
on how ALL OUT you want to go with the party, if you wish to get
the full-on disco party effect they had at the best clubs in the
nation at the height of the disco era, then you'll need to get a
few strobe lights and a fog machine. While neither of these things
are mandatory having a disco party, the staff at DressThatMan knows
how to party. And quite frankly, we wouldn't have a disco party
without going all out.
Yeah. We're hippies. And, we're having flashbacks, man. Almost
this is an adult only party... the DressThatMan staff would go also
add some blacklights and a few blacklight posters in a corner of
the room away from the dance floor. There we'd have a triangular
seating area in the corner, with bean bag chairs to relax in, if
you have them... and we'd have them surrounding a low oversized
coffee table. On that coffee table we wouldn't have coffee silly
there we'd place a multi port hookah with a variety of flavored
tobaccos *don't even go there* on a tray nearby
(not for a kids party, of course!) We'd have some lava lamps around
the room. Maybe even a plasma sphere or a fiber optics display.
Plenty of candles and some and incense for sure. Beaded curtains
hanging in doorways.
could add a modern touch to your retro party and get some light
up glasses to serve drinks in. Glow stick bracelets and necklaces.
It fits the theme and if these items would have been available back
then, they'd certainly be welcome at any of the disco parties. To
us, the rave and techno crowd today, are people that would have
been at the disco parties back then. Know any? Invite them. They
know how to party, man!
favors: Disco ball key chains,
mood rings, tie dye T-shirts, anything with a bright yellow smiley
face on it. Peace sign necklaces, incense and incense burners, etc.
