Entertaining in the '70s also meant playing games. "The '70s brought game night into the spotlight and it's making a comeback," says Wolfer. "With family or friends, plan your own game night with classics like Twister or modern ones like Cranium. It's inexpensive and fun for all ages." Bring out games that can work with teams or individual players so that everyone is included, no matter how many or how few guests there are. Having small prizes for the winners will increase the excitement and make the party more memorable, so pick up some small items like scented candles, decks of cards or gift cards to local shops or cafes for the game night victors to take home.
The '70s was a complex decade but there was no shortage of fun, and embracing the tastes and trends of those days gone by can bring newfound vibrancy and enjoyment into the present.
