A Mad Men themed party would be awesome! There's heaps of ideas on Pinterest!

Im thinking I like the idea of an 80s party better than my original thought of have a 60s party. Is there cartoons or tv shows around that time for more dress up ideas. I wonder what invites I could make.
Your making my mind go crazy! Keep throwing those ideas at me!

Just do a google search for 80's tv shows, music, hair (it was big) you'll find heaps. Personally I was into Aussie pub rock at that time but Duran Duran, Madonna, Prince, MJ were very popular. Oh I loved the Eurythmics!!!

So from what I can gather on Google the 80s was roller skates and neon.. is that right?
I found some litte cakes and wondered if I was heading in the right direction. Or maybe it is too 60s?

Ok so I was 13 in 1983 and was a teenager for most of the 80,s so I'm very qualified to answer your questions!
Yes the clothes were bright but not the food - the cupcakes are a no no - we didn't eat much - it was all about the fashion and the music plus it was the beginning of the supermodel and aerobics era so the food was basic - quiche, fondue, jazt, cruskits, diet coke, west coast coolers, slushies!
Google 80,s and : madonna, cyndi Lauper, boy George , wham, flock of seagulls, Duran Duran, Kyle Minouge and Demi Moore for fashion ideas
Tv shows : countdown, a country practice, Dynasty, Dallas, The Cosby Show, Alf, Roseanne, The young ones, Simon Townsend Wonderworld
Movies: footloose, Sixteen Candles, St Elmos Fire, Dirty Dancing, Xanadu, Flashdance, The Outsiders, Ferris Bueler, The Breakfast Club, Valley Girl
Ask your mum or dad what her fav band was and try make the theme /invite around that kind of music

I remember my parents having a cardboard party!
Everyone had to make a costume with cardboard.
Some where a top hat made from a beer carton, giant ace playing card front and back, a box with a suit drawn on it, somebody even wore a cardboard display stand with a giant hole cut in it! Just to name a few!
I was just a kid but remember marvelling at the costumes that every one came up with.
Hmmm now that I think of it must organise one of these for my 30th next year
