A great way to have a fun party that can happen any time of the year and does not require lots of gift-buying beforehand is to have a 1970s disco theme party.
Disco Party Food
Basic party food such as hors d’oeuvres and other finger foods will fit in nicely with the theme of the disco party, as a large sit-down dinner would possibly seem out of place. Items that guests can eat quickly so that they can get back to dancing would be best.
Disco Party Light and Disco Party Decorations
The disco ball is the most prominent decoration at a discotheque or disco party. The glittering, shiny mirror ball immediately signals that revellers are at a disco and ready to dance. Multicolored disco party lights would also add to the décor, and may be purchased online. Aside from the disco mirror ball, other decorations for a disco party can include typical 1970s home furniture less popular today such as bean bags and shag carpeting.
Disco Party Music
No disco party is complete without disco music to accompany it. There are many bands and singers from the 1970s disco era to choose from. Classic disco acts include The Bee Gees, Donna Summer, ABBA, The Village People, Kool and the Gang, and many more. Compilation albums of disco hits, or soundtracks to movies like Saturday Night Fever can provide a variety of music without missing the theme.
Disco Party Costumes
Costumes and curly wigs will be a fun addition at a disco party, and the more outrageous the better. Platform shoes were quite typical of the 1970s, as were hot pants. Consider dressing up like specific characters such as Tony Manero (John Travolta) from Saturday Night Fever or Disco Stu from The Simpsons. Bell-bottoms were still in fashion, as were leisure suits for the men. For women, jumpsuits and spandex were typical fashions at discos.
