MAKE, MAKE, MAKE, MAKE YOUR PARTY
Along with the resurgence of disco nights at clubs, '70s theme parties are all the rage. Here's everhing you'll need to throw the cheesiest '70s party ever:
*** Seventies threads are a must. Advise your guests they won't get in wearing anything less then be bottoms and polyester leisure suits.
*** When it comes to decorating, you're ahead of the game if you host the party at your parents' hou, especially if they still have zebra-striped shag carpeting and wallpaper with geometric patterns nshades of brown, green and orange. Macrame wall hangings are another tacky touch. Add some postersoffoxy '70s superstars and you'll have the ideal environment.
*** For refreshments, you'll want to serve retro treats. Forget margaritas and Long Island Ice Tea. ink instead of Tequila Sunrises and Harvey Wallbangers. And be sure to offer plenty of non-alcoholi everages -- such old standbys as Nestle's Quik, Tang (just like the astronauts drank), Hawaiian Puch Kool-Aid, Tab and Fresca should do nicely. Crazy Straws add a nice touch.
*** For munchies, Pringles are always an excellent start. If it's more of a formal affair, Hamburgerelper or fondue will set the right mood.
*** For the '70s sweet tooth, the possibilities are endless. But how about Frosted Pop Tarts, Cap'N unchberries and Hostess Twinkies or Cup Cakes?
*** For entertainment, disco dancing is a must. But your less aerobically inclined guests can play P Man, Rubik's Cube or analyze people's moods by the color of their Mood Rings. If you've invited anatsy crowd, make macrame plant holders or Shrinky Dinks.
*** If it's prestige you're looking for, try inviting a '70s ''power'' guests. Local entrepreneurs fm that decade include Gary Dahl, a Los Gatos ad executive who invented the Pet Rock, and Bill James ho holds the patent on the Mood Ring.
*** When the party has run its course and your guests start to leave, don't forget to say ''Have a ne day,'' ''Keep on truckin','' or ''Put on a Happy Face.''
