Halloween for Adults: The 80s Costume Party
We all remember the fun and carefree 80’s. This was the era when all the trends revolved around Michael Jackson, Madonna, Flash Dance, Miami Vice and Punk Rock. For an 80’s-inspired costume party, couples may be instructed to dress in the style that made the 80’s popular, namely: bright-colored tights; padded blouses and vests; acid wash denim, hairspray-laden punk hairstyles; funky hats and big sunglasses.
Invitations may be given out a few weeks to a month before the party, to give families time to prepare their costumes. A disco dance floor may be prepared, complete with spotlights for that “Flash Dance” feel of your 80’s party.
Food and drinks will be served prom-style, in a long buffet table adorned with centerpieces that represent the 80’s, such as multicolored Rubix cubes or a lady’s bust draped with punk implements (scarves, beach glasses, geometrical earrings). Finger foods are a must! The usual fried chicken and pasta should be available in easy-to-hold plastic plates because people will be dancing to 80’s music.
Couples who bring kids may let the children stay inside a playpen with a designated adult watcher while they spin the night away on the dance floor. Here, the kids can get in the groove of the 80’s party by creating paper crafts like paper sunglasses and personalized funky hats for their parents.
This is the time to prepare for an 80s inspired costume party for adults to attend during Halloween. If the preparations get to you and no funds are avaliable at the moment for you to spend on decorations and preparations, there is always a first cash advance option that you can avail off to fund your party needs. Apply for a small business loan early to have a really fabulous Halloween.
