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)
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.
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.
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."
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."
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.
