Let Party411.com help you plan a memorable birthday party that everyone will be talking about, long after the party’s over.

60's Hippie Birthday Party Invitations
Start the party off right with a great invitation!  We offer several personalized 60's hippie theme invitations, whether you go groovy or tie dye!

Birthdays beg for a truly unique invitation! We can design a caricature invitation of the guest of honor. Not only is this genuinely special, the art for this invitation can be used for a sign in board, welcome cutout, photo opportunity or even thank you notes.

If you’re the creative type, then make your own invitation. Just 3 simple steps.
  1. Decide what kind of paper you want to use. Heavy poster board, card stock, colored paper are all possibilities. Go for bright colors! 
  2. Pick a graphic that matches the theme, like a peace sign. A picture of the birthday person is always a possibility. If you are using a computer grab a digital photo. If you are brave and are going to hand draw your invites use markers, glitter and don’t forget coordinating envelopes.
  3. Decide what content you need. It’s pretty standard. When, where and why is usually sufficient. If you want them to bring something (food or drink) or if you want them to respond, let them know. And if you want everyone to dress in 60's hippie attire don't forget to mention it on the invite!
Throw a neon peace necklace in the envelope and you are good to go.

60's Birthday Party Decorations and Party Supplies
Now you know they say "all you need is love", but a few decorations will go a long way too! Everyone will love the personalized hippie theme banner hanging outside the party area! It is weather proof so you can hang it outdoors to let everyone know where the party is at, or place it over the buffet as a room decoration.

As everyone comes into the party room, greet them with a lifesize cutout of the guest of honor dressed as a hippie! Here are some good examples: Hippie Female, Hippie Teen Girl or Hippie Male.

Place a basket full of hippie wearables near it so everyone can dress up their threads -
