80’s Party – Adult

Posted on Updated on

My husband loves the 80’s so for his 45th birthday, I threw him an 80’s bash. The decorations included Slinky’s hanging from the ceiling, glow sticks, framed pictures of 80’s stars, posters, and toys and games from the 80’s. I made a ton of food and had all the guests dress up in their best 80’s gear. For the invitation, I purchased cassette tapes and then printed labels with the information for the party and stuck the label on the front of the cassette and mailed them to the guests. I also created a Family Feud game and rented a projector and screen and we had a lot of fun playing “boys vs. girls”

I made a Pac-Man cake

For this cake, I covered a cardboard box in a black plastic table cloth and then clear plastic wrap. I found a flower pinwheel at the dollar store similar to the one below and I cut the petals to look like the Pac-Man ghosts and glued on googly eyes.  I made a circle cake and cut out the mouth to look like Pac-Man and made mini cupcakes to look like the dots Pac-Man eats. Screen Shot 2018-12-07 at 10.38.12 AM

IMG_1164IMG_1178For the 80’s photos, I just looked up 80’s celebrities and printed their photos and added a frame and placed them around the house as if they were our own.
