    Default Time Travel Theme help

    I want to do Time Travel for a theme, looking for any feedback on ideas of things for a party.

    I have bought a laser vortex that will be set up in one garage where you can look in the window and see it, that would be the method for Time travel.

    I wan't to do a game 'What decade did this candy come from?'

    Play different music - 20's, 50's, 60's etc I have been looking on ebay for some cheap decades cds.

    I found a drawing that I want to incorporate into my invite - a sand timer where the top circle will be a clock with the time the party starts - the bottom circle will have the date of the party digitally.

    Any ideas?? Games - Food - Drinks - Decorations ??

    Sounds like fun! What about each room representing different decades or periods of time? The game can use clues (or artifact for a scavenger hunt) from each decade. Good luck.

    Hey Natascha, here's a pic I posted that might inspire you & go with your vortex. Check out some of Dali's Clock art also. Maybe play tricks on your guest, like introduce them to some one & get them a drink then 10 min later do the same thing over again & over ( gas light them some ) Love the Idea!

    I think you should do a popular drink from each era/decade (and if you decide to go with the separate decade per room idea, have the separate drinks in each room)!

    Examples:

    20s: mint julep or something with gin
    30s: champagne cocktail or aviation cocktail
    40s/50s/60s: moscow mule, hurricane, mai tai, martini, gimlet, manhattan, tom collins, old fashioned
    70s: white russian or harvey wallbanger
    80s: wine coolers or sex on the beach
    90s: long island iced tea or zima (well, it's not around anymore, but something like it!)
    2000s: cosmopolitan or appletini or any fruity martini
    2010s: something with crazy bright colors and dry ice...the "FUTURE"!

    Guess it just depends on how far back you go or how far in the future you want to go. Also, just combine decades if you need to offer less drinks...thats a lot!

    I am trying to figure out decorating different rooms. Our main set up spot is a three car garage with a patio/stage, big firpit area, food is set up in the house so there is the kitchen ,and something for the bathroom. We are on a couple acres and do a trail.

    Well, you could do a 'tiki party' by the firepit; those were popular in the 30s or 40s, I think?

    Have the kitchen set up like the perfect 50s kitchen.

    Have the bathroom be crazy trippy 70s or neon 80s.

    The patio/stage area can be roaring 20s - get a live band!

    Just some suggestions.

    Love the idea. How about one of those lava lamps for a 60s theme. They still sell them in a number of places so shouldn't be hard to find for not much. I bought mine from Ross Dress for Less probably for $12 or less. But check out places like Big Lots also for good prices.

    How about some psychedelic posters. Spencer Gifts has some interesting black light ones for not that much.
