Whether you are a young child or a Baby-boomer, a hippie-themed party can be a fun way to celebrate a special occasion. Maintain the hippie theme by incorporating 1960s elements into the decorations, food, music and cake. Look at a party supply store for colourful hippie supplies, or make your own.

Decorate the party space with beanbag chairs, macrame mats, inflatable furniture and beaded curtains. To set the mood, dim the lights and place lava lamps throughout the party area. Hang posters from iconic bands of the 1960s on the walls. Posters of the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, the Beatles, the Doors or other groups may be found at used bookstores or music stores. Using psychedelic colours for balloons or streamers also fits the hippie theme.

Food and Drink

Many hippies were very concerned with healthy eating, so vegetarian, organic or vegan foods may be appropriate for your party. Choose finger foods or other options that are easy to eat. Hummus and vegetables, mixed nuts, sunflower seeds, granola, vegetarian sloppy joes or vegetable pizza fit the healthy hippie theme. A children's party may feature a brightly coloured punch, while adults may enjoy a colourful alcoholic cocktail.


The cake is an excellent opportunity to embrace the hippie party theme. Make a basic white or chocolate cake with bright green, orange and pink frosting flowers. If you have strong cake decorating skills, make a tie-dyed cake with swirls of bright colours. Choosing a round cake with a peace sign is an easy way to incorporate a popular hippie symbol into the theme.


To complete your hippie party theme, invite guests to arrive in hippie costumes. Encourage partygoers to wear bell bottoms, denim, peasant blouses, aviator shades, love beads or tie-dyed garments. Setting the mood with popular hippie music allows your guests to relax or dance to favourite tunes. Send your guests home with hippie party favours, such as tie-dyed shirts, peace sign necklaces, flowers, macrame necklaces or psychedelic headbands.
