Sixties Party Tips And Fun - Party Themes You'll Love To Use For Your Next Get Together


The Beatles, Herman's Hermits, and the Monkeys were all the rage, long hair and flower power was the order of the day, and it is no surprise that such a colorful era is the stuff of which a fantastic sixties party is made. With the popularity of recent movies such as Austin Powers, sixties styles have gained acceptance, and retro is now chic.

To plan a perfect sixties theme party, just use common sense, and take a look into the past. I bet you remember love beads, peace symbols, tie dye, bell bottom jeans, smiley faces, but I bet you remember the music and dancing most of all.

If you have room to set aside furniture and open up the floor for dancing, chances are you have all the entertainment you will need for the sixties theme party. The twist, the jerk, the pony, or the mashed potato! Teaching these dances to the kids is a great activity! The guest are sure to love it, and you will too!

Another good activity is a rousing game of twister. Game boards can even be made from plastic sheeting with painted on circles or squares, which can allow you to make it bigger, so more people can play.

Fun refreshment ideas are round cookies iced to look like smiley faces or peace signs. In fact, guests could even decorate their own cookies before they eat! Add bead stringing activities and prizes for the best dancer, the best costume, and the fastest, longest, and most unique beads, and you have activities and party favors in one! Another game could be 60s slang trivia. Allow kids to watch Austin Powers or other 60s video clips and then take a quiz on slang trivia. The guest to answer the most questions correctly wins.
