Monday Mashups: Retro and Rave

Now we know you may need to use your imagination for some of these but it is a Monday morning so bare with us if these seem a little far fetched. We usually come up with these mashups by trolling Pinterest and finding a few things we like and think could go together. As for this theme, retro and rave, it's a twist on poodle skirts and glow sticks. Taking diner dancing up a notch with a little bit of EDM. Think 'Grease' meets 'The Jersey Shore', fist pumping the night away in your favorite cardigan.

This pretty much sums up exactly what you'd want to serve at your retro and rave mashup; sliders, coke floats, and popcorn. Done and done and more like yum and yum.

I love how retro these cupcakes look, especially with the light blue frosting! They would also make an awesome treat to serve up.

Here's an idea of what to wear. We'll add on more once we get to the rave portion.

Really get retro with these two photobooth ideas. A classic photobooth or car cutout will make for some fun and memorable photos!

Music, whether it’s a DJ or a 12-piece orchestra, is only one way to keep the party moving. Entertaining your wedding guests with fun experiences and little luxuries can add to the festivities and personalize your day. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Have a modern juke box play all of the latest and greatest rave hits. Make sure you get one that lights up because this is going to turn into a blacklight party!

It's time to rave. Bust out the blacklights.

BLACKLIGHTS (it is better to have two 48" blacklight tube fixtures than 10 of the blacklight bulbs)

First step, glow sticks, everywhere.

Glow Sticks (use inside bottles for decor)
Tip -- All the night-time parades feature vendors selling the most wonderful "light-up" items.  They are not cheap -- and your kids WILL want them.  Go to the Dollar Store before your trip and stock up on Glow Sticks, jewelry,  and other neat Disney Merchandise.  Then hand them out at Parade Time in Disney World!                   20120803-140651.jpg

Try these balloons for the dance floor. Blow them up and add a glow stick inside so they're weighted. They add a total rave element to the party!
