Music And Dress For Your 50’s Theme Party Celebration

The 1950’s began a new type of music, and your 50’s theme party needs to reflect that change. Since a decade of music and dress can mean an enormous difference, you may want to select a specific year or at least a five-year period. With the 1950’s, the beginning years was a slower trend in music without the rock beat, but as we entered late 1953, the trend was toward more rock style with the entrance of Bill Halley & the Comets, Elvis Presley, and Buddy Holly. In addition to the music, fashion trends changed quickly although the poodle skirt tended to be popular throughout most of the decade.

Although you won’t be able to do much about the hairstyles unless you want your guests wearing wigs, you want to be as authentic as possible. If you’re a child of the 50’s and still have any of the records from your teenage days and access to a turntable, use it. If not, then of course, improvise with either a tape player or CD player. As for the dress, keep in mind that girls in the 1950’s rarely wore slacks to go out to a party or dance, and rarely did girls wear jeans or tee-shirts. The look for women was feminine, and even the buys were neatly dressed with buttoned down shirts.

Decorations in the 1950’s didn’t vary much from what we have in the 21st century, so if you use the standard balls and streamers for your party, you will still be in tune. If you’re not certain just how you want to decorate, you can do some research online for some examples of style, decorations, and even party food items of the 1950’s. Be as authentic as you possibly can, but don’t force yourself to spend a great deal of time and expense on just a couple of items if the major things are available such as the music and the costumes of your guests.
