These all fit perfectly into this fun adult 1920's party theme.

Super heros can be as simple or in costume as you wish it to be. A cape and eye mask will represent a superhero or get further into the dress up theme with a metallic full bodysuit and head piece. This is one the whole family will love!!

4. The 1970’s style disco Fever!

Hot pants, bell bottoms and jumpsuits for the outfit, toss in some shiny metallic details and use bright rainbow colours to create a groovy retro disco vibe.

And don’t forget the mirrored disco ball and flashing lights to round out this party theme!
