ACT for Alexandria Turns Back the Clock!
One thing is for sure- ACT knows how to throw a party! ACT for Alexandria is once again gearing up for its annual Spring for Alexandria volunteerism events and kicking things off with a great party. After years of some amazing themes (ACTlympics and Summer Camp to name just two), this year promises to be the best yet with a 60s-themed event at the Patent and Trade Office.
I love a theme party better than any other kind and the 60s is a fun and easy one to pull off. Don’t worry about having to get all dolled up. This party is more about a groovy kind of fun than fancy dresses and dapper suits. The decade was full of interesting fashion trends so choose your favorite.
Here’s a sampling of some of the most memorable and easiest to put together.
Mad for Mods- mini skirts, graphic prints, and go-go boots for women; colorful ties and shirts, patterns for men… think Twiggy and The Beatles.
Happy Hippies- bell bottoms, tie dye, and sandals…think Easy Rider or Janice Joplin.
Sophisticated Suburbs- cigarette pants, sweater sets, and kitten heels for women; sports shirts with longer collars that included polo style, short sleeve button downs, and lots of synthetic material for men… think Mad Men.
Your possibilities are plentiful. Have fun with it. Above all, don’t forget the reason we all get to party- a great organization with an even greater cause!
