So for my big b-day next month I decided I wanted to do a 70's party theme! I am at a blank on decorations though! And the clothes I am doing sort of retro style rather costume foolishness mockery of the 70's! :-)

Check your local thrift stores and vintage stores.  They might have stuff like old eight track players, vinyl record players, beads that you hang over the door, rotary phones, tvs (that you actually have to get up off the couch and turn the knobs. lol), avocado green colored stuff,etc.

I love 70's parties! Of course, you have to have the lava lamp and disco ball! Maybe some retro "peace" necklaces and those round metal glasses people wore. How about some hippie beads!

Maybe you can look up what type of decorations they used in the 70s like the lighting fixtures.
