Theme parties are among the easiest parties to throw. Not only because most party stores now carry a wide range of themed decor but also because it helps to keep the planner focused.
We were asked to plan a party this spring. The client’s choice was a 1950’s theme. The party came together smoothly with customized theme invitations, a live band, root beer floats and burgers, girls dressed in poodle skirts and staff in diner uniforms. Decorating was a bit of a challenge because the party was held in a garage…an actual mechanics garage. Our design idea included of course records but we struggled with the idea of making a garage look like it was set in the 50’s and how to make it a party atmosphere. With a huge thanks to a local theatre company we were able to rock this party with a soda pop fountain counter and a fake juke box. We topped it off with cotton ball and tissue paper milkshakes and other 50’s inspired memorabilia and props.
