Is your child a dance star in the making? Do they love listening to music? Then a disco party is the perfect way to let them have fun with friends or celebrate their birthday! Here are some great ideas for stress-free fun!
Get the party started with some stunning stationery! A bright, bold invitation will get kids ready to dance. Let the parents know it’s a disco party so the kids can put on their best dancing shoes! The Card Gallery has lots of stunning invites that will suit a disco party or birthday, complete with matching thank you cards. Just add your own personalised wording and we’ll do the rest.

It’s not a disco party without some dancing! You can hire a local venue if don’t have room in your house – or if you want to save the floorboards! If you don’t want to spend cash on a venue, make space by pushing furniture to one side or moving the party outdoors.
If the party is for older children, you can make it extra special by hiring a professional kids DJ. Or you can simply make a playlist yourself and play it with some speakers. Catchy tunes go down well with kids – make sure to add some of the party boy or girl’s favourite tunes!

Dancing is great fun for the guests, but little ones might get a bit bored if it’s the only activity! Make sure to plan some fun disco party games. A glitter ball piñata makes an exciting break from dancing, and this kit from Party Delights has everything you’ll need.
You can also use music-based games like the limbo, musical statues, and pass-the-parcel to keep the kids interested. Add some fun twists, like asking the kids to dance while passing the parcel. For teens, try having a dance-off, karaoke, or air guitar competition!
Give classic party food a funky disco twist by adding lots of colour and sparkle! Bright rainbow and silver sprinkles on snacks like doughnuts and cake pops will go down a treat. Check out this recipe for inspiration!
A fruit salad is a colourful and healthy idea, too. Skewer sticks with patterns on the top make a yummy fruit kebab extra special.
If you’re having a disco birthday, you’ve already got a perfect theme for the cake! Colourful icing with a glitter ball cake topper captures the fun of a disco perfectly. Or you could order a bespoke cake, like this one from The Brilliant Bakers, for a bake that really stands out!
Decorate your dance-floor with disco decor. There’s no need to break the bank when it comes to lighting – small glitter balls look fantastic with fairy lights! If the party is for younger children, and you want to keep the room bright, use bunting and confetti instead.

Glow sticks are another great addition. They’re easy to wrap around items like cups and plates – in no time, you’ll have a groovy disco party table! The kids can then dance with them and take them home as party favours. There are so many great games you can play with them! Have a ring toss, or put them in clear bottles to use as glowing bowling pins.
They’re striking when paired with a black tablecloth. Or you could go bright! Add more fun colours to the party decor with themed napkins, platters, and so on!
