Feel free to add retro letter and number megaloons and balloons. They are perfect for a hippie themed birthday party.
#2. Splash of Tye & Dye Colours and Decorations
Dress up the party room and tables in tye dye colours. After all, it is a retro 1960s party. Use, for instance, tie dye coloured table cloths, woodstock party napkins, party plates, centrepieces, cakes, party banners, party giveaways and so forth. Your guests will certainly love hippie tableware decorated in flamboyant and awesome groovy psychedelic tye dye theme. How do mini me cut outs sound?
You can dig up your parents’ closet for a few 60s or 70s outfits. Better yet, you can select a hippie or groovy costume from a bespoke online supplier of party items. With a little cash and a gorgeous flower Woodstock dress, you can complete the retro look with accessories such as a peace sign necklace, and a set of shiny earrings. Don’t forget to distribute some Lennon-style coloured eye glasses to other party-goers.
#4. Lava Lamps
Lava lamps were the darling of parties in the hippie era. If you can garner a few, be sure to position them at several corners of the party room to set the retro mood. Who knows – you might catch you grandpa dancing nostalgically under their groovy lighting!
#5. Hippie Music
No hippie themed party can be complete without some 1960s music. “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye is perhaps the most notable.
