Sixth grade I had my dream birthday party- 50s themed. My mom and I made the invitations look like saddle shoes, the cake looked like a giant record, we listened to Del Shannon's Runaway and all of the girls invited wore poodle skirts. SOOO fun! If I were ever to do this party again (for my daughter perhaps) I would definitely include these into the mix:
Old vynal records reshaped into bowls. I would use large ones for decoration at the party and then use smaller ones for individual take home gifts for all of the girls. Perhaps filled with candy and a popular 50s movie. Thrify Fun shows us how to make them HERE. What are other ways you could see using it?
