When I think 80s, I always think neon lights, black furniture and good music. lol.

I would definitely get some lighting and light hte room in bright pinks, purples, greens, etc.

Can you do 80s themed cocktails? Something involving ecto cooler? Or day glow colors?

Too bad you can’t get White Mountain coolers any more.  That is the most 80s drink I can think of.

maybe you could still display the photos, but set them up in an 80’s way-Maybe make a stand up board-use silver foil paper, use LPs and put your photos in the middle of each LP ?

I actually love the idea of you putting out pictures of you guys in the 80s.  Do it!

You could use the ‘famous’ 80’s movies – like:  Say Anything, Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club… those to me SCREAM 80’s!

I know this may be WAY cheesy, but how about a prom queen and king type thing.  I always think of cheesy prom teeny boppers when I think about the 80’s…and the kick ass music.

Coke bar and mirrored table-tops? 


…seriously though, how about just making buttons as favors that say things referencing the 80s: 

“That’s so very”

“I want candy”

“I’m a Jellicle cat”

“greed is good”

“every rose has its thorns”

“Material Girl”
