***Note the yellow piece of paper sitting on the table - on "80s" inspired scrapbook paper, I printed out fun 80s facts from 1980 - 1989. This could even be turned into a game!
|Some of the party favors - most of the candy was purchased from Oriental Trading Company|
Pac-Man and the ghosts where cut out of construction paper and taped to the wall. Glue-on googly eyes were used for the ghost eyes.
Old records were purchased from Goodwill - painted and splattered with acrylic paint.
I found family photos from the 80s and had them enlarged (walmart.com) - place them on funky colored scrapbook paper for personalized wall decor.
|acrylic painted tape cassettes were hung from the ceiling with fishing line at different lengths.|
|Rubik's Cube cupcakes|
It would have been like totally awesome if we could have rented an actual "photo booth" but the price was like way out of our budget! We purchased a "rock star" scene setter from Oriental Trading and designated a wall to be the radically cool photo area!
|We ordered inflatable guitars from Oriental Trading|
|Picnik.com was used to create the "Polaroid" effect|
Use Faceinhole.com to put the faces of your friends and family on 80s pop culture! Print them out and display them as wall art.
