What makes a perfect 50s themed birthday party? Food, fun, friends and the right 50s party supplies are the key ingredients. Maybe the guest of honor grew up in the 50s, or they are a fan of the music that made the decade. Whatever the reason, a 50s themed birthday party is a great way for everyone to let our their inner greaser, hipster or daddy-o. So swivel those hips, grease back that hair, and get ready to the celebrate with a Fifties Birthday Party!

50s Birthday Party Invitations
An invitation sets the tone for the party before it ever starts – elegant, casual, silly – whatever you want, let your invitation reflect it. Consider a personalized 50s themed invitation. We love invitations that really reflect a theme, and for 50s Rock 'n Roll there are some great choices! Here are our favorites:
  • Photo Ticket Invitations - super popular, these invites let you put the star of the party front and center!
  • Backstage Pass Invitations - you have the option of getting these laminated with a lanyard and there are great matching RSVP cards available too!
  • Ticket Invitations - another customer favorite, these look just like a concert ticket! You add all your own wording for a fantastic personalized invitation!
  • 50's Semi Custom Caricature - whether you cast the guest of honor as Elvis or put her in a poodle skirt, guest will love this great invitation!
Birthdays beg for a truly unique invitation! We can design a caricature invitation of the guest of honor. Not only is this genuinely special, the art for this invitation can be used for a sign in board, welcome cutout, photo opportunity or even thank you notes.

If you’re the creative type, then make your own invitation. Decide what kind of paper you want to use. Heavy poster board or card stock is your best bet. Why not make it unique by attaching the invite to a plastic rock & roll record and put confetti in the envelope and you are good to go.

Fifties Birthday Decorations and Party Supplies
Balloons, scene setters, ceiling dangles and welcome signs with personalized messages, all make the party even more of a celebration. Some of our favorite choices include:
A few extra items from Creations for You will really make your party special. A custom sign in board or one with a caricature of the guest of honor is an easy and unique way for guests to give you their good wishes.

And you can greet them with a life size cutout of the guest of honor, portrayed as Elvis, a Greaser guy or a Poodle Skirt girl. Naturally they will be “dressed” in appropriate 50s attire for the occasion! Add a speech bubble for extra fun!

Near the cutout you can place a basket of great 50s wearables that your guests can put on to help them get into the party spirit -
Jukebox pinatas are great centerpieces at any party. Or turn your caricature if you did one into a 3-sided centerpiece that will look fabulous on any table. Place music themed balloons or flowers in it. All you are missing is some 50s paper goods, or if this is a milestone birthday think about using these milestone birthday paper goods.
50's Menu Food
If you divert from the drive-in fare like cheeseburgers, fries and root beer floats, go for the at-home cuisine, namely TV dinners. Pigs in a blanket, Ritz crackers, Velveeta, Bosco, Ovaltine, mashed potatoes and meatloaf . You can see where this is going. For drinks, in addition to the soda shop favorites, serve Manhattans, Grasshoppers and Martinis, too.

But this is a birthday party so pizza, chili, easy to eat appetizers, desserts and birthday cake are all good choices as well – the food at your party can be as simple or elaborate as you want.
