My soon-to-be 10yr old is asking for a Disco Party which we will have at home.  I have a few ideas but would love love love any input into this as I'm a little fresh out of inspiration after throwing a big Pirate Party for my 5yr old last week!!  
I want to do a dessert table and colour theme of purple, silver & black - that's as far as I've gotten!
Please pass on your ideas and/or links if you know of any good sites or blogs that have gorgeous disco parties.  
Thank heaps!

A Disco party would be a great idea for your DD. Here are a few disco party games for you:

Fruit Salad
Chocolate game
Air Guitar comp
So you think you can dance comp
Hula Hoop comp
Candy games work really well
Glitter tattoos
Crazy Hair station
Dress up relay

If you are not too keen on hiring a DJ, maybe hook your docking station up with your Ipod or hire a juke box.

If you are google "Pop diva party" you will have lots of disco inspiration.

Hope this helps

We had one for my 10 yr party last year and it was fantastic.  We sent out VIP invitations with lanyards that they had to wear it had a barcode on it and we got one of those laser pens so they really thought someone was scanning them in (we had one of the dads wear all black and stand at the entrance pretending to be security.  The kids had to come dressed as disco diva's.  We gave them all one of the little mirror balls to attach to there lanyard which they loved.  They loved doing the Karoke, couldn't get them off it.  We did pass the parcel but inside each wrap was something funny they had to do eg grab the person next to you and do the chicken dance, the kids thought it was hilarious, we also did games like best dancing, bob and statues, air guitar etc. We made sure we got group pics and also a pic of each child with my daughter and gave these out.  We had heaps of decorations, lights and bubble machine (they loved this).  We had out in the entertaining area outside and we covered it in with black plastic.  We put glitter on the girls as they arrived.  I would highly recommend you do it outside or in a garage as we were cleaning up the glitter and mess for weeks.  I was really happy with the way it went and the kids talked about it at school for weeks.  Problem is it is her birthday again soon and now i need to try and do something equally as good!

I made this disco ball cake for a friend a few weeks ago and believe it or not it was super easy!  The disco ball is actually made out of a mixture of rice bubbles, melted marshmallow and butter.  Then I put a layer of grey fondant over it and then covered it with grey squares of fondant covered in edible glitter that had an awesome holographic sparkle in it.  A simpler idea would be to make cupcakes and then put a small disco ball on top!

It depends on your budget.. if you wanna go all out and have a stress free, go Bop Till You Drop (I used to be a Disco Hostess for them!)

If youve got a budget, heres some good ideas..

Either make a cd with all childs fave songs, or load onto the ipod.. plan for about 2 hours music..

Pass the parcles are still a big hit at that age, and also great idea for just after eating.. a freddo in each wrap with the main pressie in the middle is the cheapest option.. i used to get pressies from Sams Warehouse, or Go Lo - little makeup sets, tattoos, sticky hands  etc

You can get those tubes 100 glow braclets on ebay for around $10-$15, hand them out, but they also look great strung from the ceiling..

Little disco balls - either buy them (even the little disco ball keyrings) and hand them from the roof - each party person gets to take one home

Dancing comps - get the shyest or non dancing kids to judge

Blow up mics are great too

Limbo - I used a scarf so noone hit their heads

black the room out with either disco plastic (from party shops or ebay) or cheap black material from spotlight..

cheap disco lights from sam warehouse..

Bubble machines are good..

musical statues, and they reeze like their favourite animal or popstar

Ive seen a cake made into an ipod

Waterbottles with paper thats printed with each guests name and a disco ball stuck around it.

Icecream cones with icecream and dipped in silver balls for microphone desserts

glitter hairspray when they arrive, a fake tattoo on the food break (can easily be taken off with olive oil!!)

I have more ideas if you need them but that should give you a starting point!!

Let me know if there's anyhting else I can offer!

Thanks OP I will be stealing/taking inspiration from your thread! My DD has informed me she wants a 'Rock Star' party....close enough to Disco Party I am thinking....just add inflatable guitars  cool.gif

We sent out VIP invitations with lanyards that they had to wear it had a barcode on it and we got one of those laser pens so they really thought someone was scanning them in (we had one of the dads wear all black and stand at the entrance pretending to be security. The kids had to come dressed as disco diva's.

LOVE this! I was going to do Backstage Passes on lanyards as the invitations but LOVE the addition of a faux barcode and laser pen "scanner" at the door haha

Also hadn't heard of a dressup relay....that's an awesome idea Partygeek!!

Watching with interest and will add ideas if I come across any good ones!! I haven't got long to plan. Party will be in December  ohmy.gif
