With the myriads of fancy ideas for a party concept available, perhaps a 1980s theme will rarely cross our or our host’s mind when selecting one. So when I got invited for a party last Friday in celebration for the August birthday celebrants born in the 80s I was so thrilled, more so with the Facebook event description as follows:
6 bodacious babes born in August invite you to ‘party hardy’ with them, following in the grand tradition initiated by Dame Speakeasy (2011). The Golden Decade of 1975 – 1985 brought the world many wonderous things – from Star Wars and Indiana Jones to Pacman and the rubix cube. The Cold War was on, and the Berlin Wall was up. It was the advent of MTV, and while Micheal Jackson still had his nose, Madonna … well, was she ever like a virgin? These fantabulous gals say let’s rock out and celebrate that primo golden decade that heralded their arrival to this wild, wicked world.
So, ready to get Hot-oh-rama? Grab those acid wash jeans, fluorescent gear and get ready to back-comb your locks — or slip on that white leisure suit you’ve been secretly stashing in your closet since Saturday Night Fever – or punk out like the Sex Pistols. It’s definitely on, whatever garb you grab from that golden decade.
I wasn’t really a good guest as I didn’t dress up but I made sure I keep the memories of the party alive through photos.
The event venue was a pub with vintage decorations, old photos — some are of the Beatles — and old looking paintings all over which added to the 80s kind of ambiance. And of course, what else can give the party more life than the 80s music!
