Totally AWESOME 80's Dance!

We had an AMAZING time at the dance!  Doesn't hurt that we got to rock out all night to some AWESOME 80's music!  I completely FORGOT what great music was around when I was in high school.  I think I had more fun creating the playlist than the kids did!  We mixed up traditional dance songs (chicken dance, YMCA, line dances), 80's favorites, and current popular songs.

We set up a photo backdrop so that all the dance guests could take pictures.  It was a huge hit and super simple to make.  We just created "records" out of black poster board and made the labels out of neon cardstock. We cut out our title using a stencil (old fashion I know but I didn't want to lug a die-cut machine with me!) and the same cardstock we used to make the labels.  We attached everything to some white paper that you would use when making a bulletin board in someplace like a classroom.  A little tape and some hot glue and we were all set!

Yes, even Jay and I got in on the fun!  Jay came straight from work so wasn't in his 80's garb but I was rocking my high side ponytail, blue eye shadow, Flashdance inspired cut shirt and leopard print skirt!
