This 80′s Inspired Birthday Party was originally hosted by Maddycakes Muse.

Enjoy the 80′s……

Here is a tablescape that I did for my birthday this year. I had an 80′s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun party. I was chosen to be a SPEAKER at The Special Event this year – oh did I mention that on yesterdays post- anyway this party was not only to celebrate my birthday but to showcase that you can have a great party on a small budget! My class at The Special Event is titled Parties for Pennies so if you are going to the convention please come by my class and show some love!

My centerpieces glasses were bought at the Dollar Tree and so were the daisies. I mixed a few drops of acrylic paint in water until I got the desired color. Since the 80′s were all about neon – I used neon color everywhere. I tried to make it more on the elegant side than the tacky side.

A close up of my place setting. I used ring pops as napkin rings. Do you remember those? I found the glass plates from Goodwill – I really love them.

Albums that I purchased from Goodwill served double duty, they were chargers and my menus.

Also, found the cassettes at Goodwill and spray painted them in neon colors. This took many coats of paint. Then I used a paint pen to write the names and used as namecards. I liked using items that were common in the ’80s and repurposing them.

I used lanterns all of the time. They are inexpensive, come in every color and pattern and instantly colors and fills a space! Plus you can reuse over and over again. I originally bought these lanterns for a luau party.
I just bunched them together and hung with fishing wire from my dining room chandelier.

I bought these jelly bracelets from Oriental Trading Company but when I got them they could only fit my daughter (she is two). So I decided to throw them on the glasses. I think it turn out cute. When you have lemons make lemonade.

These awesome pictures were done by the most talented Marry Jordan! I am so blessed to have her as my photographer for my business and as my friend.
