So they are throwing him a suprise birthday party (Shhhhh....don't tell him that. I'm pretty sure he doesn't read my blog, so I think we're okay.) The theme of the party is the Fabulous Fifties with Sock Hops and Soda Fountains. It's gonna be a Rockin' Party.
Since I've been asked to help out with some fun details of the party, I am going to share my preperations for our Blog party theme this next two weeks. I hope that I can materialize half the great ideas that are in my head. We'll have to see.
Usually today is my day to share a gift guide with other small business men and women on Etsy. I'm not anti-Etsy, despite our little disagreement. I actually went and tried to put together a gift guide. There was a suprising lack of Fifties themed party items there.
So instead, I'm going to share a few items I found around the web this weekend while Blog surfing for ideas.
I just LOVE these Pink Paper Staws from HeyYoYo's Etsy shop. I know these straws are very HOT at lots of parties this season. I can't wait to add these to some Coke bottles or glasses for my dinner table.
I think this 50s Diner Soda Shop Fun Room is pretty cool from Shindigz. While they aren't a small business really, I love that they are family owned and run. This room would be great as a scene setter for behind our desert table or in our dinning room with the table.
