Decorations: Decorate the party area with plenty of balloons and streamers in neon colours like pink, orange and lime green. Hang bead curtains in all the doorways the party guests will pass through. Place colored light bulbs in all lamps and sockets. Using large banner paper and neon paints, construct poster that proclaim "Peace", "Love not War" and "Power to the People." Make cut outs of Smiley faces, Mod Flowers, Yin and Yang symbols and Peace Signs out of construction paper. Hang Christmas lights around the room. Make use of any bean bag chairs, flower pillows and 60's memorabilia to decorate the room. To set the mood play some popular 60's music from bands like The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones. Add a real funky groove by Tie Dying 3 or 4 old bedsheets with bright neon colours. Use 1 as a groovy tablecover and the rest as some furniture throws.
Games: Set up a retro game room with hula hoops, tidily winks, pick up sticks and twister. How fun is that! Have a 60's Game Night! Perhaps set it up as an obstacle course and see who can get through it the fastest. Funky Dress Up - Before the party, gather a garbage bag full of clothes. Funny, old, retro clothes, bandanna's, beads, hats shoes and accessories. The Hippier the better! Visit your local thrift shop, salvation army and the closets of family and friends. Gather the guests in a circle, play some 60's music land pass around an item. Any item with a Funkadelic Feel will do! Whoever is holding the item when the music stops (your controlling the music) must reach in and pull out 1 article of clothing and put it on. Continue on until every girl has at least 4 items on. Its hilarious and not to mention a great photo opportunity.
