A 60's Party makes a great party theme! Celebrate the decade of the Beatles, Laugh In and Woodstock!

Kudos for 1960s Party Ideas and Games

This is an era of lots of color, returning to nature and "letting it all hang out". It is a really fun party for decorating, because you can go with the tie-dye look, love beads and daisies.

I once threw a 1960's theme party for a friend who was celebrating a birthday, and she was born in 1968. So, the theme fit perfectly. Everyone dressed in costume, and it was actually a surprise party. She sure was surprised and really loved that everyone went the extra effort to do a theme. Great fun!

You may want to make this a costume party! If so, plan to award a prize for the best costume. Encourage everyone to dress up, even if it is just with a headband, vest and love beads.
