I turned fifty on the 26 November last year, so now I'm officially OLD! Sigh! So I threw a real fifties party, since I am so in love with the style of the fifties.
I decorated the table in an autumn theme:
This is how the places looked like, I had made singles as table cards:
We got "air drinks", which was a popular drink in the fifties in Denmark, as welcome cocktails:
But how did we look? Here is the gangster boss and his doll, aka DH and I:
Buddy Holly was also invited, in the shape of son:
My beautiful sister and her husband:
My dear parents, who looked exactly like they did in the fifties:
Dolores del Rio and Blues Brothers, in the shape of our very good friends:
My lovely girl friend had bought authentic fifties clothes and looked fabulous:
My cute niece had borrowed a dress and a belt from me and also looked fantastic:
Three of my colleagues, who matched without even having planned to:
Hanne named it.
Another colleague who looked amazing:
Brotherly love - my brother and I:
My brother's gift to me was to play vinyl records all night, so we only listened to vintage vinyl:
And I got an overwhelming lot of gifts, some even wrapped in fifties style:
I got so many I could neither embrace it nor conceive it, but I will show some of the special ones here:
Two lovely vintage pins from one of my dear colleagues, whose granny had had a dress shop in the forties and fifties:
And an absolutely fantastic gift from DH:
Moody Blue, which has a fantastic sound.
But how did my nails look, you ask:
It was a lovely party, where I had set the flux capacitor to 1956, so we could party in the style I've always loved.
Thank you to all my great guests for a fantastic evening, and special thanks to to sister, who has taken all the photos. :)
