Like... This Party Was Totally Awesome!!

Okay, everyone! Get your slap bracelets out, and use your scrunchies to put your ponytail up on top of your head, break out the hammer pants, and get those keds with neon shoestring to kickin'... things are about to get tubular, dude!
I'm so excited that Gabbie (from Southern Magnolia, Inc) was willing to share her daughter's 80's themed birthday party with us.
She didn't leave out a single detail!

80's theme party - vip tags www.stringtownhome.netShe had "VIP" tags for the kids to wear...
She did a photo shoot with her daughter (she's a photographer), printed out the photos on labels, and attached them to a cardboard lanyard.

A great thing to keep in mind when you are planning a party, is that you want to provide your guests with a way to label their drinks... it saves on cups, and helps prevent a stranger from drinking from your cup. Gross! She used the cassette labels on these neon plastic party cups, and they are adorable! :) 80's themed party drink labels - www.stringtownhome.net
She thought outside of the box when she created her cupcake "stand". She flipped her cake stand upside down, and filled it with 80's sunshades... OOOH My!

And... red punch... so 80's. Kool aid was a huge hit during that decade. As a matter of fact, it was so popular, the next decade (90's, yo!) came up with the saying, "Up in my Kool Aid". I know that was a piece of trivia you are all thankful you know, now. ((giggles))

The most important part of the birthday party was that the sweet girl who was celebrating enjoyed every minute!
