The 1960s were a time of peace and love that will forever remain a critical part of our history. The '60s had its own fashions, pop culture icons and musicians that are trademarks of this time. If you're throwing a '60s themed party, it shouldn't be hard to create an invitation that will immediately take people back to this time of hippies, music and change.
There were many icons that represent the '60s, and some of the most famous ones are flowers, peace signs and smiley faces. Cut colourful circles out of card stock to make them look like these icons or draw them on to the circles. On the back, write the party details. Word the invitations with phrases such as, "Come to a groovy party," or "Peace, love, and a birthday party." Use lots of '60s phrases and slang such as "mod," "swinging" and "psychedelic." Don't forget to ask guests to dress in '60s attire.
Print some pictures from the Internet of things that happened in the 60s or notable personalities such as Martin Luther King junior, the Vietnam War, walk on the moon, Civil Rights Act and Woodstock. Tape them on to card stock or make postcards out of them. Write the party details on the other side and word them with things like "Make Celebrations, Not War," or "Remember when Martin Luther King junior Had A Dream? Come celebrate the era of dreams" and put your party information on it.
Use pictures of bands famous in the '60s along with song lyrics for an inspired invitation that will remind guests of the amazing musicians from this time period. The Beatles are probably the most famous band to emerge from this era, so celebrate the group by using a photo of the band and some song lyrics such as "It's been a hard day's night, so come enjoy yourself at a '60s party for Greg." The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Elvis Presley were also popular during the 60s and would make funky party invitations. You can print off album cover art or photos of the bands for the invitations, or make the invitations look like CDs by putting the invitation inside a blank CD cover.
