  • try i got all my boys decorations/birthday things from there for their first birthday and it was a lot lot cheaper than buying them in town and i mean like, the plates were 2 bucks for 24 and intown theyre like 5 or more for the same amount! and their solid color decorations rather than their themed ones, are way cheaper. (ballons are 1.25ish for five!!) we got their balloons and bought a twenty dollar helium tank

  • 80's karaoke? Every guest dress as their favorite 80's icon? (within reason, of course). You can break out your hair crimper and oversized T-shirts.... Side ponytails and Aqua net for the sky high bangs!

    You can play some age-appropriate 80's movies and music as background. Decorate her cake in neon colors w/ the inscription in Valley.... "Like, Have a totally RAD Birthday, you know!"

    Amazon has candy gift boxes based on decades.... you could buy one and use it for favors or decoration.

    Take everyone rollerskating on those totally RETRO skates (you know the ones BEFORE in-lines!)
