the making of the event…
I know, I know- enough already with this party! I seem to be doing things backwards here, this post should have come first… oh well, I’m doing what I can!
Some Footloose party essentials- a few handmade goods and a few store bought items that will really make your party stand out and look authentic- very Lehi Roller Mills circa 1984.
Bulb lights can be found at many large retailers, I got these at World Market. Napkins are from Anthropologie, red sparkly swizzle sticks are from Target, flowers courtesy of Blooms, Julia Smith floral. Stars are handmade.
We made the stars that hung above the table out of cardstock, star templates can be found online (in abundance), mod podge (Elmers glue would work too) and load on the glitter. Hang the stars from the ceiling with thread (and tape).
Signage- props for photos, dress up the table or all of the above. Download images here.
The small disco balls (from the Christmas ornament section of any large retailer) were a hit all around- the looked great on the table and no one could keep their hands off them.
Extra props (for funny photos)- open up the dress up trunk or just look around the house for a few hats, glasses, masks, mustaches(?) see what party goers come up with. What’s not to love about dressing up especially when there’s a camera around?
Photo bombed (above) little brother style.
On the playlist- Pandora, we kept it simple with the Footloose station, Michael Jackson channel or 80’s Dance Mix.
