My husband was born in 1980, so for the past few months I’ve been planning a “totally awesome” 80’s party to honor the year of his birth & totally rad years of his childhood. I had so much fan planning it, and the party was a hit. Thinking back to the 80’s was hilarious! So here’s his ‘radical’ night…
My favorite elements from this killer 80’s party include the following:
- Mr. T lifesize stand up
- Capri Sun drinks, because if you had these drinks in the 80’s, you were the bomb!
- Neon straws
- Scooby Doo elements
- Old school comic books
- Neon velcro wallets and slide bracelets
- And more!
I found the Mr. T stand up online, and we used him for the best photo op, and an 80’s party couldn’t be finished without a visit from your friendly neighborhood Spiderman (in the form of plastic Spiderman cups). I made sure to round out the party with plenty of neon colors and elements. Enjoy the party!

I had our Polaroid camera out for anyone who wanted a Polaroid pic. We took a bunch of them with MR. t and all the other 80’s decor.
