6 disco party themes that will be everywhere this year

Written by Ali Baldwin

Whoever declared that disco was dead really underestimated how much people love mirror balls, because it is 2024 and disco is THRIVING. What’s more, disco is no longer just a ’70s-themed party staple—it’s an ever-evolving party aesthetic that’s giving other party themes a high-energy, fresh-yet-timeless twist. 

From Roaring ’20s Gatsby bashes to hit-the-dancefloor Saltburn-inspired soirées, you can incorporate a little (or a lot of) disco glamour into your party. Here are the top 6 disco parties you need to know and throw! (BTW—Evite has tons of disco invitations ready to get your party started, and you can find all of the decor and supplies you need to bring your party to life on Amazon.)

Saltburn-themed disco party

Of COURSE, we’re still talking about Saltburn. Given that seemingly everyone was asking each other, “Have you watched it yet? DO NOT WATCH IT WITH YOUR FAMILY” during the 2023 holiday season, there’s no way this party theme is going to die off anytime soon, unlike the {spoiler alert} Catton family. Think old money vibes, gold accents, dim candle-lit elegance and accessories that are the outfit (antlers and angel wings are musts). The disco twist: Hang or scatter disco balls near the candles to reflect their glow, coat a pair of antlers with holographic gold glitter (or hang some mini mirror balls from them!), tack up tinsel curtains everywhere and invest in a portable karaoke machine so people can sing their fave disco tunes…or “Rent” by Pet Shop Boys. IYKYK.

Roaring ’20s Gatsby-themed disco party

Gatsby was never a real person—both in the actual book and IRL—but his parties remain legendary and what many of us dream of throwing. They’re peak glamor—feathers and fringe everywhere, black and gold color palettes, chandeliers and champagne, and of course, dancing galore. The disco twist: This is easy thanks to disco and Gatsby both being major proponents of all things shiny and excessive. Fill mirror ball vases with ostrich feathers, hang gold disco balls of various sizes to create a mock chandelier, create a pop-up speakeasy with light-up glassware and place mini LED spotlights in potted plants (the 1920s were just as popular for houseplants as the 2020s) for some extra ambiance.

Barbie-themed disco party

Just like disco, Barbie is iconic. AND, she’s also enjoying a huge surge in popularity that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Barbie-themed parties are taking over every party scene, from kids’ birthdays to bachelorette parties and beyond. She truly is everything, and her influence is everywhere so embrace it! The disco twist: Barbie’s world is all about colorful plasticky artificiality (on the surface), and if you know anything about ’70s fashion, you’ll know that ultra-vibrant polyester and nylon ruled the style scene. So that’s the dress code taken care of. But for the decor, think pink: Pink disco balls, pink glassware and pink tinsel backdrops. Also, grab some mirror ball straws for yet more disco goodness (they can also keep your guests’ lipstick looking perfect).

Cowboy/cowgirl-themed disco party

Judging by the proliferation of disco ball-meets-cowboy hat party supplies out there, this trend is already a massive hit! “Last rodeo” is an especially popular bachelorette party theme, but you can use this top theme for any kind of shindig you want to make shine. The disco twist: Grab some mirrored cowboy hats, mirror balls with tiny cowboy hats on them, rhinestone fringe bandanas, bedazzled cowboy boots and belts and boogie on down.

Neon disco party

Neon is another trend that has come back in a big way (maximalism is very much still the trend). It’s possibly the easiest party trend to marry with disco, so let’s get to it! The disco twist: This theme is more about giving disco a neon twist! Create a neon dance floor, encourage guests to wear neon ’70s clothing and decorate with neon balloons and bright neon lights.

Classic disco party

Keeping it classic and being basic are NOT the same thing. Disco is such an OTT party theme on its own, you can stick to the essentials of it and still throw a party your friends will talk about for years to come. Pick up some essential supplies and decor and curate a playlist that’ll keep your dance floor hotter than Studio 54’s and you’re ready to get down. The disco essentials: A mirror ball, vinyl records for placemats, disco tumbler cups, disco balloons, multicolor lights and groovy, thrifted threads.

What is a signup sheet?

Signup sheets are the perfect way to streamline scheduling, volunteer recruitment, class parties, snack duty, potluck organization, parent-teacher conferences and more! You can think of them as your digital assistant for coordinating events and tasks and ensuring that your event is a success.

Evite SignUp Sheets offers parents, teachers and event planners customizable online forms that organizers and volunteers can access and update effortlessly. Volunteers can choose their preferred time slots, sign up for tasks or indicate what they'll bring to the event. It only takes organizers a few minutes to create a signup sheet and send it out with a shareable link, so they can get the word out via text, email or social media—whichever way they prefer! 

Long story short, signup sheets save everyone involved tons of time, avoid scheduling headaches and ensure everything runs smoothly before and during the event.

How do I create a signup sheet?

Creating a signup sheet has never been easier than with Evite! Here’s how to create a sheet that’s sure to make your event an absolute success:

  1. Go to Evite SignUp Sheets and choose the template that best fits your needs. Evite offers multiple signup sheet templates perfect for every occasion, including:some text
    • Signup sheets for standalone events (without different time slots), perfect for when you’re organizing a class party, potluck or end-of-season party.
    • Signup sheets for recurring or multi-day events (without different time slots), perfect for when you’re organizing a meal train, post-game snack duty or during appreciation week.
    • Signup sheets for single or multiple day events (with time slots), perfect for when you’re organizing concession stand volunteers, fundraisers and parent-teacher conferences.
  1. After selecting your sheet template, create a title for your signup sheet and add the date, the location, the time (if applicable), who the organizer is, the organizer’s phone number or email and an optional note describing the event to your volunteers. You can also change your signup sheet background and title image if you wish!
  1. Next, create slots for your signup sheet. If you aren’t logged into your account, you will need to do so at this point, but luckily, you can use your existing Evite account (no need to create yet another login!). What you’ll include here will depend on what your event needs, but you can include a list of what’s needed (along with optional descriptions), how many volunteers are needed, and dates and times.
  1. After creating your slots, you can then add a wish list from any retailer or include supply suggestions from Evite’s retailer partners. These are to help your volunteers find and purchase supplies quickly and easily.
  1. Finally, review your sheet, copy your shareable link and send it out to everyone on your list! Every time a volunteer signs up for a slot on your signup sheet, Evite will email you. We will also send reminders to you and your volunteers before your event so no one will forget about it, and we’ll even let volunteers know if you remove their slot or cancel your event sheet so you don’t have to!

What information should be included on a signup sheet?

When it comes to signup sheet information, there are some essentials to include regardless of what you’re organizing:

  1. A title for your signup sheet. Tip: Aim to keep your signup sheet title concise but clear. You want volunteers to read it and have a general understanding of what your event is about, and also make it easy for them to look for later if they need to reference your sheet again. You have the option to include a more descriptive note in a different field about your event, so save the more in-depth details for that!
  1. When and where the event is taking place. 
  1. The organizer’s name and phone number.
  1. Slots for volunteers to choose from. Once you choose the SignUp Sheets template that fits the occasion, the slots you’ll need for your sheet will be right there and ready for you to add the relevant info, such as dates, times, items to bring and tasks to complete. 

When adding your slot information, clearly define what people are signing up for, especially for a what-to-bring list or role assignments. If you want someone to bring healthy snacks for kids to enjoy after a game, specify that. You want your volunteers to feel confident in what they’re bringing and to make it easy for them to know what’s expected of them. It will save them time and stress (and you, too!). That being said, if you make your ask too specific (for example, asking for a hard-to-source item or something expensive), you may not end up with a volunteer for it. So be clear about what you expect, but also be reasonable!

Aside from providing the basic signup information, you can also add optional descriptions to both your entire signup sheet and individual slots. While not required, they can help guide your volunteers further and provide more information. You can add information about allergies, preferences and general info about the event. You can also add a wish list to make it easier for your volunteers to bring exactly what you need!

What are the benefits of using a signup sheet template?

Signup sheet templates offer a ton of advantages for both organizers and volunteers and with Evite SignUp Sheets, you'll enjoy even more benefits than other digital and paper signup sheets! Some benefits our signup sheet templates offer include:

  • A 100% free experience (no subscriptions required!).
  • Shareable links for quick and easy sharing.
  • No need to create another login—you can use your existing Evite account.
  • The option to add a wish list to help your volunteers out.
  • Automatic reminders—we’ll remind everyone on your behalf.
  • An easy-to-use experience with eye-catching guided templates.
  • Clean, modern designs with no pop-up ads.

With Evite SignUp Sheets, you can enjoy organizing and coordinating all your events with ease. Signup sheets streamline the signup process for everyone involved, ensuring that everything will go to plan on the day of your event while saving you precious time in the process.
