for a fifties party can sometimes be the easiest menu to plan. Go for

that your guests wont be expecting
try some of these 1950s
theme party food ideas on for size!
1950s Theme Party Food Ideas
Theme Party Food Ideas #1: Create some record album cakes. A great
idea that super simple to pull off begin by baking a bunch
of single layer 9 cakes with your favorite cake recipe (or right
out of the box!) They are already perfectly round and make fantastic
records! Frost accordingly. Using your computer, you can print labels
to go in the center (either with actual songs from the decade or words
describing the day i.e. Happy Birthday, etc.) If you get ambitious,
take a narrow drinking glass (a shot glass is perfect) and push it
face down in the middle of each cake before you frost them. In this
way, youll make a hole in the fashion of the real 45 records.
With a fork, you can score the tops of the records to create concentric
grooves. This would also work well with cookie cakes.
Theme Party Food Ideas #2: Another great cake idea is to nab a screen
shot from an old 50s movie and glue it to a piece of thick cardstock.
Push the picture into the cake upright simulating a Drive-In movie screen.
Now use lots of matchbox sized cars in front of it as though they were
watching the movie! For added fun, you can put fake trees, signs (make
from cardstock and attaching them to straws or toothpicks.) You can even
create a concession stand using legos!
Theme Party Food Ideas #3: If you do decide to go with the traditional
hamburgers, fries and milkshakes, consider visiting your local restaurant
supply store (i.e. Smart & Final, etc.) and pick up some white
server hats for fast food joints. If outdoors, put the servers on
roller skates (if you can still find them) versus the roller blades
that seem to be everywhere now.
Theme Party Food Ideas #4: Dollar stores often have very inexpensive
small dessert sundae dishes. These are great to use as serving ice
cream or other desserts in but also as candy dishes or dishes
for holding just about anything for your party.
Theme Party Food Ideas #5: (If continuing with the diner feel) take a
giant sheet of poster board or butcher paper and make a large menu to
hang on the wall. Be sure to put cheaper prices! Hamburgers were only
a quarter! You can also make it Als Diner, Frosty
Palace like in GREASE or perhaps use the name of the guest of honor.
Theme Party Food Ideas #6: For some fun snacks, take OREO cookies
and turn them into records! Spread a small amount of light colored
frosting (about the size of a nickel or quarter) in the center of
the cookie. With a little black icing, put a dot in the dead center
for the hole. These are great fun to have setting out
at your party or as cake decorations! This can also be turned into
a fun activity for the children to decorate, then eat!
Theme Party Food Ideas #7: For AMAZING record album snack bowls,
get old albums from that time period, though any would work. Get
yourself an oven safe bowl and some wax paper. Turn the bowl over
so the opening is face down place wax paper over the top and then
place the album on top. Heat oven to 350. Put it all on a cookie
sheet and place in oven for approximately 2-5 minutes youll
need to watch it. Then remove and while still warm gently push sides
in to make a wavy effect. You now have take home favor bowls to
fill with candy.
