70’s Disco-Pop Theme

A disco-pop theme from the '70s never gets outdated because who doesn't love dress-up parties? So whether you're throwing a casual all-nighter or a fun evening party, here are some ideas that you'd like to cover for a pop-themed party!

The first step in setting up your 70's disco party is to organize a bar. If you own a home bar, then that's fantastic. Otherwise, you could always set up a mobile trolley bar. 

A customized trolley bar is big enough to hold your favorite cocktails, carafes, wine and small enough for you to move it around the house.

Next, you'd want to set up the perfect lighting to create a retro vibe. For this, you can use ceiling color-changing LEDs or multicolored neon lamps.

In addition to this, you'll have to make adjustments to your modern apartment decor. For example, if you have installed speakers in your home, it's time to replace them with a vinyl player! These small changes will help you create the best 70's pop disco party.

Next, all you need to do is make your guests groove to Michael Jackson to get the party started!

Birthday Party Decor

 Birthday Party Decor

Decorations are different for every party, so how will you pick the perfect birthday party decor? Firstly, you'll have to keep a few things in mind: the birthday theme, your budget, and the age range of your guests.

It is vital to know your audience at a party. For example, if you're throwing a family-friendly birthday party, then you'd want to set up balloon arches along with some decorative food tables. In contrast to this, if it's a friends-only party, you'd have to level up your decor game to include funky and inventive themes!

Since it's a birthday, balloon decor is going to be a must. However, for an adult-friendly party, you could work around the theme of white, gold, or pastels. These subtle shades help create an elegant scheme.

An essential part of birthdays is a cake which means that you'll have to set up a cake table. For the table, you could choose a decent table cloth that matches your color theme. You could also put balloon arches behind the dessert tables.

If you're hosting the party at home, you could cover the entrance with balloons or leave them free on the floor. It will help you create a grand statement at the party. Latex balloons are usually suitable for this purpose.

In contrast to this, if you're hosting a children's birthday party, then it's best to set up some fun games such as 'Pin the Tail'! Again, make sure that you choose a bright-colored theme along with some floral arrangements, candles, and bright lighting.

Sophisticated Adult Party Decor

Adult parties require a little more attention to detail. Therefore, planning an adult party can be a daunting task. But with our ideas, you'd be able to throw a well-organized party that'll make you everyone's favorite host!

So how do you start decorating the place? Firstly, decide the venue. If you're throwing the party at home, then you'll need to work your way around some modern art deco, elegant decorations along with some party classics.

At this party, tablecloths, centerpieces, and the sitting area will be the center of attention. Unlike disco parties where you boost music through the house, this party will need something different.

For this, you can make food the center of attention. Your adult-friendly party should cover well-organized food tables to multicolored cocktails being served at the kitchen counter.

In addition to this, you could order baked goods such as pies, cupcakes, and quiches. You could set up champagne towers or everything from serving platters to cups.

 Sectional sofas

For the seating arrangement, you could keep tufted seats or sectional sofas.

Modern Party Decor

If you want to throw a modern party that will excite all your friends, you've come to the right place! We have some fantastic ideas to help you transform your home into a modern club with neon lighting.

There are a few other things that will help you win the heart of all your guests. Firstly, you need to get rid of all the furniture in your living room because it's time to set up the best dance floor!

To create the best dance floor, you'd need some good disco lights. They will help to cast bright shades on the floor. In addition to this, you can never go wrong with mirrors.

 Disco lights

Patterned, plain, or designed, all mirrors help to make your room look spacious. Therefore we recommend that you use full-sized wall mirrors for your living room party. They will help to reflect the lights as well.

Besides this, you can make the best of your futuristic tech devices. Bring out all your speakers to the living room! In addition to this, arrange a tablescape to keep glow sticks and glow-in-the-dark bracelets.

You could also keep a black tablecloth and get highlighters for your guests to write glow-in-the-dark messages!

 Led Cube chairs

A fantastic idea would be to keep steamers, electric grillers, and broilers. This way all your friends would be able to enjoy a pleasant outdoor barbecue with some great music!

For the drinks, you could set up a champagne tower or a drinks corner in the backyard. You could cover a wooden table with a white cloth.

Another essential aspect of such parties is the serveware. Be sure to use mirror mosaic trays, exquisite wine glass, and champagne tables! Also, use metallic accents for tables.

For the lighting, you can decide whether you'd want dull ceiling lights or luxurious chandeliers. The next important thing is to focus on the jewel tones and feathers because you can not set up a gatsby party without being extra.

Such parties are all about glamour and grandeur; hence, make sure that you get feather fans, glitter headbands, and cloche hats. Hopefully, these ideas will help you transform your event space into a Gatsby party!

Masquerade Ball Theme

You can never go wrong with a masquerade ball-themed party. It may seem like an outdated idea, but trust us on this as nobody misses out on a masquerade ball!

 Silver coated trays

These props will help you set the mood right. Besides this, you can serve the drinks and food in silver-coated trays. Don't forget to mention the formal dress code to your guests!

You can make DIY feathers and beaded masks or order them. Use dark accents for your masquerade ball theme. Throw in many gold ornate frames, gold glitter garlands, and birdcages to create the perfect vibe!

Furthermore, cover your home objects such as TV with velvet fabric sheets. You could purchase them from thrift stores. You could also scatter peacock feathers to create an aura of luxury and decadence.

Try to hang golden feathered masks on the walls for a unique decoration. Also, choose a white, silver, or gold theme for cups, plates, and candelabras. Finally, make sure to invite lots of guests that can stay unidentified by the end of the party!

Pool Party Decor

When you own a swimming pool, impromptu gatherings result in a pool party most of the time. But if you wish to gather your friends and family for a carefully planned extravaganza, here are some ideas for you to decorate the surroundings.

Unique pool party decor depends on the age of your guests, as the key to hosting the best party is selecting a theme that resonates with your guests' age group. Since this party will not have modern art deco, you may think that you're an amateur party planner when it comes to outdoor decor.

But the fun fact is that it's effortless to set up outdoor parties. Since the pool will be the center of the celebration, there isn't much that you have to do except managing food tables, games, and some outdoorsy decorations!

For food, you could keep lots of salad options with salad dressings. You could keep croissants, mini sliders, sandwiches, pies, and quiches. For drinks, you could arrange juices and tropical drinks such as your favorite cocktails.

When it comes to decor, you could keep seashells on the food tables. Cover the chairs with beach towels. If your pool doesn't have an overhead shade, try to keep patio umbrellas to do your guests a favor!

You could also set up a wooden table with goggles and nose plugs. If your pool party is children-friendly, then you should keep some snacks and candies.

Try to keep the surroundings of the pool green to create a welcoming vibe. For example, you could set up levitating plants, string lights, and waterproof lanterns around the pool to enhance the overall vibe of your pool party!
