We live in a time where space exploration is once again popular, and with it, we all have a greater interest in conquering the final frontier. Many individuals are reigniting their infatuation with the early days of moonwalks and adventure.
However, most of us probably aren’t shooting off into the cosmos any time soon. Luckily, that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace this newfound appreciation for the stars in a fun way with friends and family. Here are our tips for how to create a space party with a retro vibe.
There are many historical instances of space travel to use as inspiration for your cosmic bash, and they all make for unique themes. The most famous space event in our history is the moon landing, which showed the world our country’s sense of innovation and adventure. Planning a moonwalk party is fun and relatively easy.
First, get creative with your set-up—moon decorations are simple to make from scratch and drive home the theme. Additionally, putting old footage of the moon landing on the TV in the background ties the room together. Fun lighting with different colors contributes to the cosmic vibe while also maintaining a retro feel. Lastly, encourage guests to dress up as astronauts and NASA individuals.
Go for Fantasy
A fun aspect of space-themed parties is that you don’t have to throw one solely about actual events. There are so many examples of space in pop culture that make for a fun party with friends. To truly accomplish a retro vibe, consider a Star Trek event that celebrates this famous series.
Ask your guests to dress up as their favorite characters to reunite the members of the Starship Enterprise!
