How to Word a 70's Theme Party Invitation
(disco image by askthegeek from

When you think of the 1970s, you think of disco, miniskirts, bold colours and music that defined the era. If you want to have a '70s-style party, set the mood with an invitation that using popular lingo from the era. It's a great way to let your guests know you plan to go all out for one groovy event and set the right tone for the party.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Blank invitations
  • Dark-coloured marker (thin)

  1. 1

    Start with a blank invitation. Choose one with bold colours and simple shapes. If you plan to feature music at your event, find a card that includes an image of a disco ball.

  2. 2

    Pick your pen. Unlike traditional invitations, you don't want to use a calligraphy pen. Instead, choose a dark-coloured, thin marker, to make it easy to write. Print the letters.

  3. 3

    Write an intro using words and phrases from the 1970s. Here are some examples: "You're invited to a groovy party." "Get ready for a gnarly experience." "This party is gonna be far out." "Get ready to boogie."

  4. 4

    Include basic information about the event. Include the place; if it's at your house: "Come to my pad." Include the time: "Plan to chill out at 5 p.m." Let them know why: "We're having a radical night to celebrate Brad's stellar birthday."

  5. 5

    Write one last '70s phrase. It's the last reminder that this is a '70s-themed party. Here are some examples: "Be there or be square." "Check you later." "Party hardy."

Tips and warnings

  • If the party is for girls only, try dotting the i's with flowers. If it's for a boy, dot the i's with happy faces.
