Fifties 50s Party

For my son's 16th Birthday, we decided to throw a 50's, 60's & 70's Costume Dance party.  We sent out 100 invitations. 

We rented a hall and hired a DJ (Andy's uncle & cousin work real cheap!).  We're decorating the hall w/100 helium balloons w/curly strings attached that will hang down in the hall just above everyone's head. 

We are giving out movie party in a basket prizes for the best costumes of the decades. (movie in a basket contains: 2 bags of microwave popcorn; 8 - 10 fun size candy bars; 1 box of raisins; 1 bottle of soda; and a $5.00 gift certificate to a movie rental store.) 

We have decorations for all 3 decades.  We will be serving trash can punch (fruit punch w/ real fruit in a trash can.) 

And we have several contest like guess the number of M & M's in the jar and hula hoop/yo yo/paddleball relays. 

And the ever popular Limbo, Stroll & bunny hop dance.

We have also strung hundreds of "love beads" for party favors.  We can hardly wait!
