Searching online for ideas can take hours...and typically the ideas are either overused or incomplete. Below is an example found on party website when searching the net for ideas...

"Put music notes on the walls"

Example: (#8 in the Decorations & Atmosphere section of The Ultimate 50's Theme Party)

8. Teacher supply stores are great places to get supplies for homemade party decorations. You can purchase very inexpensively a pack of single colored construction paper. Unless your party colors dictate otherwise, buy a pack of all black construction paper. From used manilla file folders, cut out a few stencils of music notes. For a variety of shapes, check out some sheet music (libraries, friends, online, churches, etc.) for a variety of notes and symbols. Once you have a few, invite some friends over to help trace and cut out a ton of notes to hang just about anywhere (the walls, from the ceiling, etc.) This is also a fun activity that the kids get in on! If you want to get a little more ambitious, get your hands on a skein of black yarn and create a five line music staff on which to put the notes. When spacing the lines, keep in mind the size of your notes so that they are somewhat proportional. Also, remember that the music staff doesn't have to be straight across like on a page of music - you can have it zigzag, flow musically in circles or in whatever direction your creativity takes you! A finishing touch would be to make a large jukebox as a focal point for the musical notes to come from. This can be made from poster board, a couple boxes stacked on top of each other (covered with butcher paper this looks REALLY great) or just butcher paper. If you have a tall ceiling, you can make a HUGE one from butcher paper (once again, found at teacher supply stores) by hanging several sheets next to each other. With such a single large decoration (with the notes then flowing out of it) you'd need very little else to decorate your party and your guests will be incredibly impressed!

Imagine almost 100 MORE just like this!!!

THIS IS NOT A REHASH OF SCATTERED IDEAS FOUND ON THE INTERNET!!! Although some ideas might be familiar (which is inevitable), a conscious effort has been made to provide unique ideas - ones you would probably not find ANYWHERE else - many originated by the author himself - ALL TO IMPRESS YOUR GUESTS!

What do our customers have to say about the Ultimate 50s Theme Party and our products?

"We had an unbelievable response to the ideas we used from the 50's themed event. It was for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and since they were married in the 50's, thought that would be a different way to celebrate. It was a huge hit. People dressed up and really got into the theme. The record bowls, 50 trinkets on the tables, music ideas were all super. It would have never happened had your ideas not been a part of our celebration." Patti S.

"I purchased the Ultimate 50s Theme Party that included the 50s Treasure Hunt for my son's 5th grade Valentine's Day party at school…everyone including the parents had a blast! I have been wanting to do a treasure hunt party but was intimidated by making up my own puzzles or clues. I was thrilled to find this site. I am now the Queen of school parties. I can't wait to try the Halloween themed hunts!" Anne

"I just received both of the 50s party downloads and the treasure hunt - they both look like they are going to be a great resource!" - Janet


Lay out all of the Bingo cards on a large table (or series of tables with a clear circular path) and position all players around the table(s) such that each player is in front of one card. When it's time to play, start playing some great 1950's music and allow your guests to walk in a continuous circle around the table(s). When the music stops, every player stops in front of the Bingo card they're closest to. Call out a space the way you normally would in a Bingo game. Then start the music again and have your guests walk (or dance) around the circle again. Once again, when the music stops, each player must stand next to the nearest Bingo card waiting for the next space to be called. It's not enough to get BINGO in this must be standing in front of the winning card when it wins!!!

  Think ahead for photo opportunities. Your guests will have such a great time walking around in costume that they will want to remember your party in a special way. Even if you don't have much in the way of decorations, plan on ONE spot that is extra decorated (perhaps a specific corner of the room.) This would be a great place to put a personalize banner or some cool standees (see image to the left for ideas on items to include in your photo opp.) If you set your photo opp near the front door when your guests arrive, they'll also get a great 'pop' when they arrive!
