For my husband's 40th birthday party, the theme seemed like a no brainer. I just HAD to do an 80's themed party. Denny is a kid at heart, he still watches his favorite 80's movies on a regular basis, and I am not sure when he will grow up. I surprised him with this party, which was extremely difficult, but I think we pulled it off!
I bought boxes for 97 cents each, covered them in black paper and taped neon colored sqaured to make giant rubiks cubes for decor on this table. I covered the table with candy from the 80's (the dollar store was the BEST place to find most of these items!). The Pac Man cake was a must, as my husband was and will always be a video game nerd.
Each table centerpiece was an 80's explosion of jelly bracelets, rubik's cubes, slinkys, 80's style sunglasses, spray painted cassetts and VHS tapes.
I took place bulletin board paper and speckle painted it with neon colors (easiest thing ever!). This was the simple set up for the photo booth, complete with a polaroid cut out and other 80's inspired props.
