50s Pin-Up Party

My most popular post by far and also the one I get a lot of emails & questions about is the 50s Pin-Up theme birthday party I threw for my hubby last year. It was the best night ever, we all had such a rockin' time! Back then I was new to blogging & a little apprehensive about sharing "people photos" on the blog so I really didn't pop enough pics up. Sooo... since it's such a popular post, I thought my lovely readers deserved to see a few more photos of the night we rocked around the clock...

With my hubby
Channeling Buddy Holly...
My pin-up gal outfit
Just so you know, these lovely munchkins were NOT smoking, they just snuck my prop when I wasn't looking! It's not real!!
The guitar shaped cake covered in edible pin-up gals
The birthday boy gets a kiss from the pin-up gal

It was a disgustingly hot night, so humid & raining, so you'll have to excuse if we're looking a little sweaty & also any frizzy hair haha!

I shall leave you with a little favourite 50's number of mine from Buddy Holly...

  1. Looks like a great time! Love the pics!

  2. Yay!!! That was such a fun party, Clare, love seeing the pics again!! And my goodness you sure do know how to do styling well. What you didn't mention was all the little teeny tiny details you put in, like the old 50's magazine adverts on the walls, and the 50's music and radio commercials you had playing in the background, as well as the milkshake and diner style prices on the tables...oh it was wonderful!! Let's do it again some time! ;)

  3. Thanks guys! It was definitely a fun party and everyone went to so much trouble with their costumes, which was great!

    Katie, I mentioned a lot of that stuff in the original post, so I tried not to repeat myself too much this time round & just show lots of pics, but yes, for more details, check out the original post here:
