Oh WOW! I have got to share the photos from my collaborated birthday party with my wonderful sister-in-law. We had a 1950s themed birthday party this past weekend and it was SO much fun! All of our friends really enjoyed it so I thought I would post some 1950s party ideas and tips that helped make our shindig a success!
Retro party ideas
How to throw a DIY Retro 1950s Party
First, we picked a color scheme. Reds, pinks, & black and wanted it to feel like a 50’s diner threw a party. Since it was for both of our birthdays, we collaborated on pinning to our Pinterest board our 1950’s ideas. Everything made visual is SO much easier to envision how the party should go.
*TIP! Helium only lasts 6-8 hours! Don’t fill your balloons until the day of your party!
Since this was a late night party, we did snack foods – white cheese fondue, pizza bites, veggies, mudslide milkshakes & chocolate mousse cake.
We used this popcorn maker to make our own freshly popped snack foods! So DELISH !
Things I Made
I made the prop hamburger and hotdog out of air dry clay and paint.
I made some prop candy since candy to fill jars is SO pricey. I used air dry clay for the sugar sticks, let them dry, then painted them. I used my food sealer and a strip of cellophane to wrap them in.
How to make fake candy for a party
For the other candy jars I used wadded up paper and cellophane to look like taffy and balls of aluminum foil for more candy filler.
I cut out the music notes for the walls out of construction paper.
Using photoshop, I designed the 1950s party invitation.
Here’s a fun baby belly design I did at the salon. Her husband surprised her with a great gift – getting her baby belly decorated with henna for their 3rd child’s birth – so fun! Here’s her baby belly henna design .
She wanted 5 flowers – one for each member of her family.
