ABOUT THE THEME

Dance the night away with a ’70s party theme that celebrates all things peace and love. The ’70s saw a lot of technical innovation and political change that influenced social culture, so you have plenty of events to get inspired by: both Apple and Microsoft were founded a couple years apart, disco turned the music scene upside down and fashion was in a league of its own.

Entertainment

'70S BAND

A live band is the best way to bring an authentic '70s feel to your party. Stick to one style, or mix all the popular genres together (think: rock, punk rock, pop and R & B).

LOFT

Some of the most influential parties of the ’70s took place in downtown New York City lofts (think: David Mancuso), and went on to influence nightclubs all over.

Food

CHEESE FONDUE

Fondue had a real moment in the ’70s. It made entertaining a snap, since it doubles as a fun activity for guests and a meal. Serve with a variety of different breads and vegetables.


Beverage

TEQUILA SUNRISE

This punch-like cocktail rose to fame after catching the eye of The Rolling Stones, and basically fueling their 1972 tour. Shortly after, The Eagles paid tribute in their own way with their hit entitled—you guessed it—“Tequila Sunrise.”

LAVA LAMPS

Even though they’re called “lamps” these old-school light fixtures are really just to set the mood. They don’t give off much light, but rather, they represent the laid-back and psychedelic-adjacent attitudes of the ’60s and ’70s.

TIE-DYE

Big, bold and bright are the three best words to describe ’70s fashion, and tie-dye may be the most iconic pattern to fit the bill. Instruct guests to come dressed in their best hippie wear and deck out your party with tie-dye color combinations.
