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

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet 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 s

An 80s Tennis Player Costume? You Cannot Be Serious!

While most people opt for a pop star theme when dressing up for an 80s party or event, one option that is a little more original is to dress like an 80s tennis player. The costumes I'm about to show are obviously based on John McEnroe, and I'm dead serious! The short-tempered tennis star became infamous for his confrontational behaviour towards the umpire during the 1980s, screaming "Answer my question! The question, jerk!" (when he angrily threw his racket at the juice cart) and "You can't be serious man, you cannot be serious!" when he thought the umpire had made a bad call about the ball being out. He was often booed by the crowds for his rants, but it was hugely entertaining to watch! Embed from Getty Images The look above is the one you should aim for, and this is the most iconic. So let's take a look at the fancy dress costume options available...   The white T-shirt and shorts outfit with red and blue stripes is based on McEnroe&

Create an 80s Aerobics Fashion Look

Let's Get Physical 80s Workout Costume During the early 1980s, it felt like the whole world had gone aerobics crazy. Females everywhere donned leotards, leggings, headbands and legwarmers, and some were even on rollerskates! Pop stars and actresses were responsible for starting the craze. Olivia Newton-John started a headband fad after the release of here raunchy Physical video in 1981, and the song quickly became an aerobics anthem. And just about every home had a Jane Fonda workout video in their collection - often proudly on display on a book shelf in the living room, or carefully placed on a coffee table for all to see. However, contrary to popular belief, not everyone was wearing neon. Take a look back at the old workout videos and you'll see a whole range of colours and styles being worn. Some leotards were shiny, some had stripes and others were pastel. Zebra stripes, leopard print, and splatter paint designs were also worn by some. There were often (but not always)
