I celebrated my birthday 80s style this year, with a themed-party, 80s music and a decade-long mashup of decorations. From Boy George tapestries, Motley Crue posters and PacMan mobiles to neon jelly bracelets, banana clips, and Pop Rocks, it covered the gamut.
I was particularly proud of my Pac Man ghosts hanging from the ceiling. After the party, I just couldn’t throw them away, so I kept some for my junk book and I gave one a new life as a post card:
To keep the theme going, I sent out thank you cards on these mix-tape notes from HeatherJeany at Etsy. I bought them ages ago, and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. I just needed to get around to having an 80s party!
And, uncharacteristically, I will share a photo of myself, dressed as the 80s rocker chick I clearly was born to be:
