1950’s Birthday Party

My step daughter turned 10 this year! She wanted a 50’s party so she could wear a poodle skirt.  She loves to dress the part for everything she does! Here are is what I did for the party.  I’ll be posting about the candy table and awning and also the drive in sign I made. It was one of my favorite parties I’ve done so far!

We did a candy bar table and a photo station!  I had gum balls, tootsie rolls, lollipops and we had cupcakes. I had a popcorn machine in the corner with little popcorn bags.

I got checkered wall murals and wrapped our island and made a “soda shop”.  We also did Malts complete with a vintage malt mixer which I didn’t get a picture of unfortunately.  In the back you can see I ordered red baskets, for our hot dogs, hamburgers and fries.

This was right in our entry way.  I had a table with glasses for they guys and girls and also for pearls for the girls.  This was a fun touch for everyone to dress up!

So I took a cake decorating class a few months ago and thought…I can make a cake. Well boy was I wrong.  I made my cake and it cake our perfect, I started to frost it and it ripped apart!  I have since learned…Freeze your cake before you frost it!! So last minute I ran to the store and found a plain round cake.  I rolled out my black fondant and cut it to fit the top of my pre-made cake. Used sugar paper for the white part and then wrote on it.  I think her record cake turned out pretty well, for all the trouble I had!
