Vintage Casserole

Hosting a vintage themed birthday party?

For my 15th birthday party next year, I want to have a vintage theme, you know, circle skirts, polka dot blouses, floor length dresses. I've always been intrigued with vintage stuff, and i want a party with that theme. what could i do to make it the best party ever? what food should i serve, what activities should i present, what should the dress code be, how many guests shoudl i invite. im doing it at home, so it'll be a limited amount of stuff that i can do. any suggestions would be great!
with love and cups of tea,

Sounds like your going back to the 50s. We wore felt round skirts with poodles or other designs on them. We made them and it was pretty easy. Short sleeve sweaters and matching cardigans were in as was polka dot blouses. We also wore bobby socks and saddle shoes, but sneakers will do. I'd just ask the girls to dress as close as they can to vintage 50's or you can all get together beforehand and make the skirt, especially if a few of the girl's moms have portable sewing machines.

Pizza, hamburgers and french fries were the popular foods with us kids and everyone drank Coca cola or Pepsi, at least in the USA. Moms made tuna noodle noodle casseroles using crushed potato chips on top, fruit salad and Jello salads, three bean salads. Dump cakes using canned fruit were a popular dessert as were Chiffon Pies, like lemon, lime, chocolate etc. and my favorite Nesselrode Pie. Chips and dips became popular along with cereal mixes similar to the chex mix. Rice crispies treats were loved by all and simple to make.
