Decorations
Lighting will play a crucial role in setting the stage for your '60s theme party. Stock up on colored bulbs to give the place a groovy, colorful glow. If you can get your hands on some strobe lights or lava lamps, you'll be able to create an instant psychedelic vibe. Love beads, flower garlands and yellow smiley faces should be easy to find online or at your local party store.Don't forget, the '60s were not only about peace and love. They were also a celebration of modernist furniture, pop art and the British Invasion. So there are plenty of creative ways to decorate for this theme. Place Campbell's tomato soup cans around the house, hang British flags or go space age with moons, rockets and silver accessories. You can also decorate with famous movie posters from the decade, like Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
