An 80's Birthday Party

Gosh the 80's were bright! NEON, baby!! I was in my twenties and I didn't wear quite so bright outfits as these birthday girls did. We had fun tonight celebrating birthdays for three girls from our church. The youngest turned 18 today. She obviously was not born in the 80's, but she dressed the part. Alright, here we go...

Here they are from left to right. Ashly, the 18 year old; Jenny, my Letterboxing teacher; and Rhonda a mom who blogs at have2havehumor.

Here are some of the leggings and shoes. It's a little dark, but I think you get the idea.

What better to celebrate with than a "HOT PINK" cake. Ashly's mom made it and it was good.

The inside was Neapolitan, Mmmm Mmmm good! I love her cakes.

You know the "Preppie" on the right. That's Nan at Momstheword. She's with Kaytee who also has a blog or two. Kaytee is also 18 and going off to college this fall. Nan jokes about going with her in one of her suit cases.

Some cake for the colorful birthday girls.

We ate some BBQ, had some cake and listened to music from the eighties. We also remembered movies that we enjoyed or were forbidden to see. It was a great time and the little kids liked it too. Some of the guys even dressed up a little. I was a party pooper, but I still had fun.

"Every party has a pooper that's why we invited you, party pooper, party pooper, that's you" Just thought I'd throw that in there. Take care.

Happy Birthday GIRLS!! Have a great year.

    Be back later...

  2. Hi,
    I came over here from "McCrackens X 4" and also read "Moms the Word". The party looked like a great success and that neopolitan cake sounds yummy to me. Happy birthday to the birthday girl.

    I can so relate to the 80's~ graduated in '84.

  3. A Disco Ball on a cake...who would have thought?
    That cake is to die for!
    I can almost hear the laughing and giggles.

  4. 80's parties are so fun but now I want cake. Cake is my weakness... along with chocolate, sleep, coffee, coke, cookies... I can be very weak sometimes.

  5. Too much fun! I had an 80's birthday party for my hubby in May and invited our whole youth group and the adults that help with our you program. It was too much fun! Great pictures!

  6. Boy, I wish I had some of Deb's cake now....yum!

    Yeah, it was fun! I just can't believe that I knew so little of the music from back then. I guess I just didn't listen to the radio as much.

    The three of them look so cute! They were rockin' it!

  7. Good times, girlie! And you were NOT a party pooper! I have to say, that was one of the funnest parties I've been to in a while. Good, wholesome (well, for the most part) entertainment, good friends, good food, and lots of laughs :)

  8. what a fun party. Nan looks great too. I was an 80's product. Brings back so many memories.

  9. You are funny, Nannette.I like your little party pooper song. Looks like a good party.

  10. Looks like a great party Nanette! Nan looks so cute too! Aww! You were a party pooper. You should have gotten a picture of the party pooper too. LOL

  11. Nannette,

    This was a creative birthday celebration. How fun. Scary that I remember those do's and outfits so well. My kids are always laughing about our big hair back then:)
