80s-Themed New Year's Eve Party

New Year's is a major party time, and nothing is more fun than attending a colorful New Year's party! 

Offer a party on your property for those who want to have fun and indulge in a party, without worrying about having to drive home or get back to their home late after the party wraps up. 

This is perfect for those who want to be close to home, parents with children, and those who actually have to work early the next day, but still want to participate in the festivities.

For a truly authentic experience, have resident’s dress the part.

To encourage residents to go all out with their outfits and costumes, be sure to advertise and offer fun 80s themed prizes. Give away things like Rubik’s cubes, Lisa Frank stickers, 80’s themed buttons, 80’s movies, etc. for the best ensembles!

Include categories like:

•Boldest and brightest make up

•Most Lycra

•Most coordinated outfit (or funkiest outfit)

•Biggest hair

•Best moustache

•Largest amount of rubber bracelets

•and more!

Add your own funny 80s-themed categories as well!


If you're old enough to remember, you can think back on all your 80s era favorites to come up with decorating theme ideas.

80s related themes can include:

•Glam rock

•Animal prints and patterns and designs (think Lisa Frank)

•Bright neon colors

•Geometric patterns

•Or even old-school arcade games!


Fun touches to the party can include a few inflatable boom-box coolers and original Nintendo machines for playing old-school game favorites.

Considering making these giant Rubik’s cubes to add to the ambiance:

If you happen to live in an area with clear sidewalks in winter, consider adding these clever arcade-influenced chalk decorations leading into the party.

It’s all about the music!

For any 80s party, it starts and ends with the music. Make sure your mix-tape, I mean playlist, includes all of the following decade-ruling music icons: 


•Air Supply

•Bon Jovi


•Michael Jackson



•The Police


•Tina Turner


•Whitney Houston

Have a blast adding the glam! This New Year’s Eve party is sure to be a bright, bold and colorful evening to remember!
