Elements of a retro party

I suppose a retro party should really have a specific date in mind, but this one was for a bunch of ladies aged over 50 and intended to remind them of their childhood and young adulthood – so I guess 70s and 80s. It also has a sprinkling of the 90s when our own children were growing up!  It probably depends whereabouts you grew up as well.
