Cool Birthday Party Themes For Those Born In The '80s

If you were born in the ’80s, you probably have fond childhood memories of Saved by the Bell, Full House, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Britney Spears, or other popular culture hits. Holding a fun birthday party for all your friends born in the ’80s is a great way to celebrate in style. If you are hosting the party for yourself or for a close friend, here are some party themes you should consider for a great party.

Dress Up

Hold a party where you have all your party guests dress up in their attire from their youth. Your childhood was filled with unique styles–light wash overalls, short shirts baring the midriff, parachute pants, grunge jeans, Air Jordan’s, and Doc Martens. Hairstyles included the backwards baseball cap or tall bangs with lots of hairspray! Another fun option you can choose is having your guests dress up as their favorite TV stars. This can be turned into a fun game as your guests are in character the entire night. You may also choose to have guests dress up as their favorite cartoon characters. Be prepared for some cool costumes featuring Buster and Babs Bunny from Tiny Toons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the awesome Power Rangers of the ’90s!

Your party music needs to include the best tunes from your childhood to help bring everyone back to the ‘90s. Be sure to add music themes from favorite TV shows like Tiny Toons, Step by Step, and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Then, you want to have some tunes you can all dance from artists like Britney Spears, N’Sync, Backstreet Boys, Aqua, Limp Bizkit, and Boys 2 Men. Make your Birthday a special occasion by inviting friends and family. Sapnay can take care of your party request from start to finish making your Birthday a memorable one.


No party for the ’80s child is complete without some fun décor. Pick up some old posters to hang on the walls including the boy band sensations from the ’90s along with JTT, Candice Cameron, Macaulay Culkin, Will Smith, Boy Meets World, Full House, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Step by Step, and Family Matters. Don’t forget movie posters from ’90s classics like Clueless, She’s All That, Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and 10 Things I Hate About You. To create fun centerpieces, use some classic items from your childhood like the slap bracelet’s, mood rings, Gak, Pop Rocks, Pez, Troll Dolls and Ferbies. Instead of having everyone sit in chairs for game time, pick up some bean bag chairs for everyone to sit in. You can make your own with some fabric and bean bag pellets. You can even create mini bean bags for everyone to take home as a party favor!


Depending on where you host your party, you should try to have a large dance floor where people can dance and roller blade! This is a fun way for everyone to laugh about their youth and the original roller blades with the hot pink or green wheels! Not only do you want to have a gnarly time with your blades, but another fun game to include is the original Nintendo with Super Mario Brothers. Sega with Sonic the Hedgehog is another awesome retro game everyone can play. Board games were big in this generation with fun games like 13 Dead End Drive, Girl Talk, Don’t Wake Daddy, and Jumanji.
