A 60's Party makes a great party theme!

"Thank You Thank You Thank You.
I was looking for a really special 50th Birthday theme for my girl friend's surprise birthday party and I really wanted everyone to participate and with costuming it for the 60's not everybody is into it but your idea of just jeans and t-shirt and sweatband and maybe a vest was so cool I got so excited.

Celebrate the decade of the Beatles, Laugh In and Woodstock!

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!
