A Perfect Celebration

The 60’s were all about fun, liberation and experimentation. After the Second World War, society rebelled against all sorts of conservatism and rule-making. As a result, fashion, décor, music and mindsets began to explore alternative ways of life, celebrating, entertainment and ideals. A very popular party theme to this day, the 1960’s continues to inspire event organisers and wedding planners to create vibrant events.

“Flower Power” was a catchphrase and represented the appreciation of natural beauty, colours and freedom. Another popular design element and theme was centred on all things psychedelic. Use these concepts when deciding on your theme colours, elements and embellishments. The key to succeeding in this theme is to rebel against convention and to concentrate on communicating your unique personalities and tastes.
