1950 to 1959 due by Wed. for a meeting at work.
I’m in search of ideas for a theme from the 1950’s. I’ve found a Sock Hop theme, and a Rock n Roll theme. I’ve discovered bingo, word search, and charades as a few games. We may also include a raffle. Poodle skirts, blue jeans, Dior, Chanel, and Givenchy. Pony tails to flat tops or crew cuts. Men were wearing gray flannel suits? Roy Rogers, Davy Crockett, and drive-in movies. Disneyland opened along with Sharpstown Mall, or Gufgate mall. Elvis was in the house. Hula hoops, silly putty and western gear. There were some new technologies in the fifties. Television was just one of them. “Peanuts,” the comic strip, Singing in the Rain, and High Noon. Tomorrowland in Disneyland opened in 1957. Tropical fish were the most popular pets. 1950’s candy = Mars, 3musketerrs, M & M’s, Pez, Saf-T-Pops, and Whistle Pops are just a few of them. Any suggestions please help.
