Alright, this is going to be picture heavy! We had her 2nd party on the 10th, because her BFF's b-day is the 17th, 2 days after her's so I bumped her party up to seperate the girls parties by a week.
We had a 50's sock hop and once I got going on this way back in August I was amazed at how much stuff there was out there to find for this theme! I found some adorable balloons at the local party store and some Christmas ornaments that were perfect for a Dec b-day party favor, plus blow up guitars and microphones and rubber duckies
I got some old records and melted them in the oven and those "bowls" held our goodie bags! The goodie bags contained a soundtrack, rubber ducky, pink M&Ms, tiny gummy cheeseburgers, hotdogs, cokes and fries, and some other candies. Each family got to take one ornaments home.
We had "cheeseburger, fries and shakes" as a snack, they were all sweets though, no real food here! I added to the diner theme by emptying out tiny bottles of ketchup and mustard and refilling them with red/yellow icing for the kids to put on their fries and cheeseburgers.
I also had a record tray of truffles, complete with little peanut butter records.
Here is a pic of her menu complete with special Lydia-centric prices!
The kids all loved dancing and playing instruments to Lydia's soundtrack and of course the girls got to wear their poddle skirts again, and this time I got in on the dressing up action!
