Nostalgia and great music? Well, this is the right place! MUSIC BINGO FEATURING SONGS FROM MICHAEL JACKSON, QUEEN AND MORE! THE GREATEST MUSICAL ERA!
Feeling nostalgic? Want to travel back to the greatest era ever? Now you can! It's the 80s themed Music Bingo!
The 80s was truly a great time to live and people who were born and grew up in that time would agree. It was simpler and the music made then was simply great! It still is timeless and even the current generation of artists are producing music that is reminiscent of the older style. This playlist features popular singers, including Michael Jackson, Phil Collins and famous bands like Queen, Wham! among many others. Some could say that this was the golden generation of music and some would agree. And most would certainly agree that an 80s themed music bingo party would definitely be an amazing idea!
So to start things off, you’d need decorations. Decorations are key to any and every party. They set the mood and help people get into it as well. Imagine it being something like a kickstarter for a party. And for an 80s party, getting people into the mood is something that should be paid close attention to. During the 80s, neon colors were incredibly popular and was basically the theme. Every invite, every club back in the day was filled with neon color decor. You certainly will be hitting the brief of an 80s themed party. Consider using black as well for contrast. Another cool thing that can be used as decor is essentially an arcade game or even a photo booth. That’ll be nailing the brief!
Of course, if you have a themed party, you need the right dress code. People during the 80s wore, what we would consider today, to be some of the wackiest and weirdest clothing options available. They’re loud and bright and everything in between. Some ideas are scrunchies, ripped jeans among many others. Ask guests to come in their favorite 80s creations. Be prepared to see plenty of legwarmers, neon, animal prints, and hot pink. Or if you want, ask your guests to come dressed as their favorite 80s actor, actress or even their favorite movie character! The possibilities are endless when it comes to playing dress up! Look at some pictures and get inspired!
Next up, food. If you run a bar, you’d definitely have a lot of tables. The centerpiece for any table can be a simple Rubik’s Cube, 3x3 of course. Why? Well, during the 80s, Rubik’s Cubes peaked and you could find those nifty little thingamajigs in everyone’s hand, trying to solve it. And you can also set up a bar with some really colorful drinks. Swap out classics for some really bright and fun colored drinks, like a Midori Sour, for example. Besides, you can also have a candy bar for people that want to indulge in some of their favorite 80s candies, like Sour Patch Kids, Push Pops, Chupa Chups and more! It’s pretty evident that these candies can actually invoke nostalgia in the party and adds to how immersive the party is!
And of course, the main thing - the music bingo! While playing the song, you can ask the guests or contestants or audience to dance to it if they want to. You could have some space allocated for that if you do have that much space. If you also wanted to, you can add a karaoke machine which would add a lot of fun and ask the audience or your guests to sing to it. People would love it if they could sing along to the song and also just create a fun atmosphere. A fun little touch to the party would also be to add the music bingo sheet on a neon colored paper. As a prize to the winner, you can hand them a Rubik's Cube which was, like we mentioned earlier above, was incredibly popular in the 80s.
Finally, you need the invitations. If you’re the kind of person who goes all out, you know that invitations can bring a party together. It just feels like the bow on the tie. If you wanted to, similar to the music bingo sheets, you can print out the invitations or to be more precise, design the invitation around neon colors and splatter paint on it.
You can also come up with your own amazing 80s based ideas and ensure that your guests have an amazing time!
