I hope this is the right place for this. If not, please let me know.
DH turns 40 at the end of January. He knows I want to have a party for him. He's only ever had one in his life and that was only with 3 friends when he was 8. We'll probably be inviting around 20 people or so. I'm thinking no kids. Since DH and I both graduated from high school in 1985, we are both definite products of the 80s. I thought it would be a fun party theme. We could have everyone dress up in 80s garb, I have an "Atari" machine that plays all the old Atari games that I would put on the TV. Play 80s music. What else? I thought about having a basket of candy of old favorites from the 80s (jolly rancher sticks, lick em stickums, pixy sticks, etc). Got to have some Bartles and James Originals wine coolers (although, I'm pretty sure I couldn't drink one now if my life depended on it). Other than that I'm at a loss on food. And what about invites? I want to send off something cute, but haven't any good ideas. Needs to be something I can do fairly easily on my computer. I also don't have any ideas about decorations. Does this sound like a totally lame idea? If not, does anyone have any good ideas?
