The following are what we feel are the perfect items that capture the nostalgia for an 80s themed party:
1. The Age of Disco
Most people argue that disco was part of the 70s but the 80s were also a part of the age of disco. In fact, it drew from the many influences of the 60s and the 70s. That’s why we suggest that you add some disco balls into the mix. We know that this should be done tastefully so you should get our mirror ball centrepieces.
These are available in two height options, tall and low which makes them perfect for use as centrepieces or stand alone decor items. The stand for these centrepieces is clear and supports LED lighting. For a more mind-blowing experience, we can rig our state-of-the-art DMX system with the lighting. This lets you create a unique light experience. You can have the most stunning mirror balls that reflect and go with any colour scheme you have in mind!
2. Bright and Vibrant Colours
The 80s are remembered for their bright and vibrant colours which grew a bit tamer as the 90s approached. Nonetheless, you can incorporate various colour schemes that throw back to those vibrant 80s years. To add some colour, pick seating options that are also colourful.
Our Rubik’s Cube seats are going to be a huge hit as they embody the pixel art fever and bright colours of the 80s. They not only add a pop of colour but also stand out and are easy to see. These can be paired with our LED Lumenbloc tables. Both these elements can make your event extremely colourful and bring the 80s to life. Even for a formal 80s themed party or event, these seating options are the most fun ones that you should consider.
3. It’s Waka Waka Time
What’s the one, iconic thing about the 80s? There are many actually but the most famous one is Pacman. You can bring it to life in your party with the help of our LED logo arc panels. These can be customized to make them bear any logo you have in mind. In fact, getting Pacman and the 4 ghosts on the panels can be extremely fun.
These panels and arcs can be placed anywhere you want, whether you want them at the entrance or in doors in the party. With the help of these panels, you can make one think that they’re inside the Pacman game! Add in the right colour schemes and your 80s themed party will be a huge success!
