Rock the night away!  Perfect for an employee appreciation party, a customer thank you party or a holiday bash.  This party ties together 50ís ambiance with a rock-n-roll attitude.

For great rock 'n roll theme decorating ideas visit 50s Rock n' Roll Decorating411!

Welcome Area

Welcome employees with the classic style of vintage T-Birds, Mustangs, Bel Airs, and Impalas.  Park them near the front door with footlights lining the entranceway.  Add glamour with red carpeting to the doorway.

It wouldnít be a 50ís rock ní roll party without Elvis

Have the boss dress up as Elvis (trust us, everyone will love it!) and have any staff working the event wear Poodle Skirts or Letter Jackets.

Set up life sized stand ups of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, James Dean, a young Paul Newman, The Beatles, etc. These can be purchased through Incredible Gifts.  Add a touch of Hollywood with life size cut outs of paparazzi or hire photographers to take pictures of employees as they arrive.  A few body guards or policeman stand ups can act as if they are holding back the crowds.

Then make a sign welcoming everyone to the party decorate it with records and checkers.  It can read something like this:

Welcome to Company/Organization XYZís

50ís Rock Night

At the registration area hand out seating cards that look like records.  The label can read the name of the person and table name with the title ďCompany/Organization XYZís 50ís Rock Night.Ē 

Next to the registration table, how about a 48" inflatable juke box? 


Elvis and MarilynDuring cocktails, models wearing "Celebrity Heads" can stroll through the crowd. (Note: Celebrity Heads is a firm with national distribution that has created larger-than-life, top quality replicas of just about any famous person you can think of. They run $250 and up, but are well worth it.) Set up a photo opportunity so that your guests can have their photo taken with the celebrity you have provided.

Set up large screen or a video wall showing black and white sitcoms, old movies, commercials or news clips from the 50ís.  

Employees can enter an area that is "propped out" with a dragster, old-style microphone, instruments and more. Here, they can make a video of themselves performing with the stand-up of their choice.

In another area, hire an "Elvis" impersonator to serenade the crowd and get everyone ďAll Shook Up.Ē 


In the dinner area set up a path of 50ís character stand ups with spotlights leading guests to their tables. 

Centerpieces and Tabletop: Use 50ís model cars and attach balloon clusters for centerpieces with Mylar jukeboxes! Make table cards out of cardstock designed with records and classic cars.  Label each table after a popular 50ís rock star, Elvis, Patti Page, Frankie Laine, Nat King Cole, and Eddie Fisher.  Provide each table with a quiz on each artist for them to answer; the table with the most correct answers wins a prize.

Make the tabletops rock with rock ní roll table skirts and checkered tablecloths. Complete the look with napkins and cups.  Place chocolate notes around the base of the centerpieces with votive candles shaped like musical notes.  Then give everyone Elvis Glasses and silver star glasses for them to wear at the party Here are some other Rock Ní Roll themed paper goods.

The soda shop and carhop was a quintessential place to hang out.  A 50ís rock ní roll party isnít complete without one.  Set up a milkshake and soda shop. Serve hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, milkshakes, malts and root beer floats. 


Host a sock hop and hire the best 50ís band in town, a local DJ works too.  Elvis impersonators can perform a whole show if that is within the organizationís budget.  If the company or organization is honoring special employees, take the time to do so before the dancing begins. You may even want Elvis or Marilyn to do the honors. 

Check out our music games for added 50ís Rock Ní Roll fun.

Rock n Roll Party Decorations

Create and entry into your event with a Diner Theme Arch.  Spread the theme throughout the room with inexpensive, but large (and fun!) Rock And Roll Soda Shop scene setters.  We love the 5' cutout of the girl with a poodle skirt.

Rock n Roll Party Favors

What else? Glow jewelry for all.  Adorned in glow earrings, necklaces, glasses and bracelets, your guests will light up the night. Everyone loves this stuff!

As a special thank-you, give your guests a 50ís "goodie bag" when they leave. Included in it should be Cheese Whiz, Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee Pizza mix, a chocolate jukebox, a packet of saltines, and a personalized candy bar  from Party 411.
