Top 10 Tips for Throwing a Hippie Party

A hippie party is truly a blast from the past, and one that tweens and teens will likely love to visit during a birthday celebration. With peace, love, and all things retro cool, a hippie party is an uber-cool party to plan with your tween or teen.

Inside, write all of your hippie party details.  Request that your guests come dressed as a hippie too.

2. Create cool hippie decorations using the signs of the times and creating your own and hanging them around the party area.

3. Make a peace sign banner to welcome your guests.

4.Play hippie music.

5. Tie dye shirts at the party.

6. Make love bead and hemp jewelry – these can serve as the party favors too.

7. Hippie trivia…who knows the era best?

8. Serve organic, healthy food just like the hippies would have enjoyed. Fruits, vegetables, tofu, and the like are all good choices.

9. Carrot cake for your birthday cake topped with a large peace sign drawn with icing.

10. Send the kids home with their tie-dye shirts and handmade jewelry for their party favors.

Spring Clothing Tips: Laid Back Styles and Must Haves

Update your wardrobe with spring trends that are influenced by the season itself, the cool spring breeze. Clothes that are relaxed and a little unpretentious are some of the season's most fashionable pieces. Embrace your inner boho with key pieces that will give your spring fashions a laid back mix. Here are a few signature pieces to achieve the breezy bohemian look.

Spring tunics are like summer dresses; light, simple and an essential garment for the season. Be sure to snag a short tunic in a cool lightweight fabric like soft cotton jersey or linen. The best colors for the season are light, washed out colors and soft pastels. If you prefer prints, try a cool tie-dye print to imitate a chic 70s bohemian look. For an added layer of fashion, try a tasseled waist coast or a light denim vest.

Boxy crop tops are flirty and fun, and a must-have piece for your spring wardrobe. The most popular styles come in lightweight cottons with horizontal stripes at the top of the list for prints. Look for these free-spirited tops in feminine lace fabrics. The perfect pairing for these crop tops are a pair of acid wash skinny jeans, or another popular spring trend, jeggings. Turn this look from day to night by replacing your gladiator sandals for a pair of killer high heels and big bouncy hair.

Complete any of these spring styles with the right accessories. Spring shoe trends for a breezy boho look include gladiator sandals and wedges. The most coveted shoe styles this season come in shades of tan. Ballerina flats continue to be popular footwear but instead of metallics look for fun flats in sorbet shades for spring. Bohemian jewelry is also an asset to your ensemble. Important pieces to invest in are ethnic-inspired jewelry like heavy beaded necklaces. A tan colored cross body satchel in embossed leather or fringe suede will finalize your laid back look of effortless cool.
