party inspiration board: retro on roller skates

A skating party can be fun for all ages... be it 6, 16 or 60. Encourage your guests to dress up in their favorite throwback gear and put on their boogie shoes. Since most local rinks already offer disco balls, flashing lights and a great mix of 70's & 80's music, it doesn't take much work to make this party a hit. Focus on finding some fun favors and get creative on the costumes... like decking out a pair of sunglasses with sequins. Love it! For a list of rinks in your area, check out rink time.
