It’s finally Friday! At boboli, we’re always ready for a party. So we’re giving you some ideas for organizing a birthday party with a 50s theme. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John will be your VIP guests.
1. THE MENU
Take your inspiration from classic American diners to create your menu. Mini burgers, hot dogs, popcorn and cupcakes are all must-haves. To add a healthy twist to the meal, look at these ideas for preparing your own veggie burgers or this simple recipe for vegan hot dogs.
2. DRESS CODE
Take a lesson from Grease to create your outfits. Polka dots, tulle, leather, scarves and pompadours will be the main features of your party’s dress code.
3. DÉCOR & ACCESSORIES
Round out the party with these decorations. Deck out your dining room to look like a real diner with hanging records, striped drinking straws and retro props for your photo booth.
4. PARTY GAMES
There’s no time for boredom at this party. Organize contests inspired by the 50s: hula hoop, the limbo, and dance-offs. Don’t forget the karaoke! And for the grand finale, a piñata in the shape of a hamburger or a guitar will surprise all your friends.
5. TIME TO DANCE!
There’s nothing like a good playlist to make you the king or queen of the party. With this list of hits from the 50s, you’ll win over all the partygoers. Little Richard, Jo Ann Campbell, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley will all be there.
