Invitations for a Disco Theme Party

Eye-catching disco party invitations are the best step to kick off your disco theme party and to tell your guests “What is a disco theme party”. Let’s try these 3 creative ideas to get your guests excited from the moment they receive their invite.

1. Holographic Disco Ball Invitations

Holographic stickers are what you need to convey a disco ball on the invitation. You can use any simple card or paper and stick one eye-catching sticker at the center. However, we recommend a dark, starry background for the card to make the holographic disco ball pop. Then, just write down other information. Simple and affordable!

2. Circle Disco Ball Invitation

Another unique idea is to use custom printed circle stickers in the shape of a disco ball. On the front, print a fun quote like, “Let’s Boogie Down!” and on the backing paper, include all the party details. These invitations are so cool because guests can peel off the sticker and use it to decorate their own space and belongings.

3. Vinyl Record Invitations

For a retro twist, use your DIY skill to create vinyl record invitations. Cut and paste paper or paint a white paper to make it look like mini vinyl records. When your guests receive this invitation, you can rest assured that they know what the theme is.
