Are you racking your brain in search of a few disco themed party favor ideas? Well, perhaps I can help. As a former special events planner, I happen to know of several disco themed party favors that would be appropriate for teens. Here they are:
Satin Newsboy Caps
The 1970s disco era was known for satin newsboy caps. I owned several of them as a child. With that said, why not treat the party guests to a satin newsboy cap of their own? The hats are usually available for purchase through costume, theatrical and party supply shops. In my experience, a dozen caps will cost you $34.
Disco Glam Gear
1970s disco divas need to look as shimmery as the disco balls that light up the club. Therefore, you may want to create a disco themed party favor bag that is equipped with all the disco glam essentials. I’d suggest including sparkly lip gloss, body glitter, shimmering eye shadow and glow-in-the-dark swizzle necklaces (50 necklaces for $30).
Disco Fever Wand
A disco fever wand would also make a great party favor. The guys could use it to channel their inner Deney Terrio. The disco fever wands are available for purchase though party supply shops. Each one will cost you roughly $6. If you don’t want to fork over the $6, you could always opt to make your own disco fever wands. In order to make the wands yourself, you’ll need toy microphones, mini flashlights and lots of glittering gems.
Disco Ball Jewelry and Accessories
Giving each teen an assortment of disco ball jewelry and accessories is another option that you may want to consider. Many party supply shops sell disco ball necklaces ($6 per dozen), disco mood rings ($16 per dozen), disco ball ear rings ($3 a pair), disco ball bracelets and disco ball key chains ($4 per dozen).
Dancing Shoes Candy
Are you looking for an edible disco themed party favor? If so, you may want to give the kids dancing shoes made out of chocolate or hard candy. There are candy molds available for purchase through restaurant supply stores that resemble high heels, clogs, disco boots and other dancing shoes. Prices vary based on the design. In most instances, each candy mold will cost you less than $4.
