Eye-catching 80s Party Invitations

Totally 80s Party Invitations x 8



Picture the scene. You've spent a lot of time and money on making your 80s party/event the best in town, but then you send out a bland, poorly designed invite to your guests. Worse still, you forget to send out any invitations at all!

You'd be amazed at the number of poor quality invites I've received over the years. From the off, they give a very bad impression of your party, and if you can't be bothered to send out a decent invite, then chances are that your guests just won't bother turning up.

In this post, I'm going to show you where to find eye-catching invites that your with really grab everyone's attention, ensuring that people will want to go to your party.

Quite possibly, the best online range of invites in a digital format can be found at Etsy, and they deliver worldwide - just change your currency at the bottom of their website. Most of these can be downloaded digitally. You can then print as many as you need using your own printer.

Above are just four examples of the hundreds of designs available. Whatever 80s style you're looking for, you're likely to find it at Etsy.

If you prefer a more traditional, ready-printed set of invites then try Amazon. However, the range of designs is very limited compared to Etsy. Firstly, here are the designs I discovered at Amazon.com (US). Some different designs are available at the UK site.

I particularly like the "Let's Party" invites which certainly grab your attention! For quirkiness, the pink zebra stripes are a winner.

The biggest range of printed 80s invitations can be found at Zazzle. They are priced individually and have just about every design you can think of. Although more expensive than buying a multi-pack from Amazon, you receive a more unique design that you can really impress your guests with.

Below are just a few of my favourite designs available at zazzle.co.uk. However, you can order from across the globe by changing your currency on the site.

Well, I hope I have helped you find some decent sources for 80s party invites. May I wish you every success with your party.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today.

Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on!

I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier!

After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave scene. However, it wasn't until 197…

Create a Tina Turner 1980s Fancy Dress Costume

Ask anyone to name a few great female singers from the 80s and it's highly likely that they will mention Tina Turner. This lady was huge back in the eighties, with hits including What's Love Got To Do With Itand We Don't Need Another Hero, to name but a few.

If you want to be simply the best dressed person at a fancy dress party, then why not try this gorgeous, shiny Tina Turner dress featured above?  If you're going to an 80s or pop star themed party then this costume is ideal but it can, of course, be used for other fancy dress events.



Although I have linked to the U.S. Amazon store, the costume is not available here, sadly, although you will find a range of wigs and a couple of suitable dresses. However, there are costumes available on ebay, and the prices are very decent. This link will work in any English speaking country.

You can buy an even more authentic-looking dress from Amazon, I remember two very different gold dress that Tina wore back in the 80s, one of …

Create an 80s Party Girl Costume

For this post I'm going to show you how to quickly piece together a costume similar to the one featured above, or create your own variation of it. The main focus of the outfit is the 80s Party Girl T-shirt which has eye-catching, Katharine Hamnett style block lettering in neon colours. Now, you can, of course, use different accessories to create many looks based around the tee. Let me show you how to create the look from top to toe.

The T-shirt

Obviously, this is the main component and I've linked to ebay above where there are usually at least a couple of suppliers selling the tee. If you're from the UK then you can also buy the shirt at Amazon. In the United States, there are many suppliers selling tees based on the slogan at Amazon.com.

Shirts and sweatshirts were often worn off one shoulder and were over-sized, sometimes doubling-up as a dress. I recommend ordering at least a size-up to ensure you achieve a loose look. You can buy T-shirts that are designed to be worn o…
