The inspiration for this party was the very famous 80’s cartoons, Jem and the Holograms. As a matter of fact, they released a movie about Jem and the Holograms last year but it flopped. A very girly show with themes such as fame, alter egos, competition, glamour, friendships, and above all music. Kind of like the Hannah Montana of the 80’s, but with cartoons. There are really no limitations to this design, anywhere from a birthday party, to a life celebration such as a career achievement, to a corporate event. I would have the guests dress in all white and the honoree wear an iridescent dress. Nobody would miss her!
I see a crisp white room filled with food action stations. Iridescent panels hanging from the ceiling and cubes of iridescent marbles Ikebana style for some of the centerpieces. Ghost chairs on etched glowing tables and high boys covered with iridescent linens. The wow element of the party? An iridescent jello bar (with or without alcohol).
This theme can be done also in a more hip and urban style, maybe for a sweet sixteen or for a bar/bat mizvah. For more ideas you can see my Pinterest board here.
It’s time to show your lustrous colors to your family and friends.
