Nothing says the 80s like the Go-Gos, the Bangals, and my hearthrob, Adam Ant...

Man, I want to come to that party!

I am also a 1985 grad! I remember big hair, jelly shoes, mini skirts, legwarmers. Wow.

Make sure you wear ankle socks with your pumps and don't forget the banana clip for your hair!
Ooh! And dig out your crimping iron!

I have an "Atari" machine that plays all the old Atari games that I would put on the TV.

I had a go on a wii and it was really like playing on the Atari.

If I remember correctly, Pizza Hut/Domino's Pizza/Little Caesar's were just getting popular.

Here's another link to popular 80s food:  http://www.inthe80s.com/food/index.shtml

It's not as good as the one posted above, but it has a few things on the list.  I also like the idea of having food 'stations' set up around the house with a different theme (e.g., one station for "Breakfast Club" food, another one for "Miami Vice").

I think some kinds of games that would be good are a Skip-It Contest (those toys that went around your ankles) and possibly a Scene It? 80s version game.
