50s Birthday Party ~ BYO Poodle Skirt

Annie's Birthday Sock Hop finally arrived.

Lucky girl, her Auntie Cake had the perfect room for her party.

The decorations were up,





the saddle shoes were tied,






the hair was greased,



the curlers were set,




It was time to party!















(Here comes the part you need to sing.)
"I can mash potatoes,"

"I can do the twist."

"Do the twist!"
"Tell ME Baby,"


"Do you like it like this?"


"Do you love me?"

"Do ya love me?"


"Now that I can dance...."

"Dance...."

"Dance!!!!!"

"Watch me now!"






All that dancing can make a girl hungry :)
No 50s party is complete without a Malt Shop!





Then, a little time to just play,


smile,




swing,






and chase chickens.


The night wrapped up with presents,


a movie with all the kids' families,
and a visit to the A&W for rootbeer floats & popcorn.



Oh, what a night!

Special thanks to my sister "Auntie Cake", my parents who helped out & to all the kids who came & made the party perfect!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Libbie just when I think that you and Kate can't out do your last party I am highly mistaken. OMGosh you two know how to PARTY!
I think I am repeating myself from other comments I have left in the past.
Awesome way for Annie to celebrate her Birthday. I love love these pictures. Picking a favorite out of these would be really hard.
Everyone looks like their having a blast.
You girls could make a fortune in the catering business for parties.
Sweet Libbie I so hated for you to read my post because I did not want you to be sad. I do appreciate yours and everyones precious words left for me. With friends like you how can I not make it.
One day at a time is what I keep telling myself right now.
I really love you and appreciate you
Maggie

I have missed way too much! Summer must end now so that I can keep up! This was the best party ever, oh my gosh you and Kate outdid yourselves this time! I'm sorry but every sentence that I write in this comment will have to be followed by an exclamation point because you two are so stinkin AWESOME! The picture of Kate made me snort laugh out loud... yay Aunt Kate!
I didn't think that it could get better than the sock hop and then you go and throw an outdoor movie complete with floats and popcorn! AMAZING! You, my friend, are a shoe in for the MOM of the YEAR award!
I better step up my game if I want a glimmer of the trophy for next year... I'm pretty sure you got it covered already though.
You are the best... add Kate in their too... awesome. t. xoxoxooxxoooxoxoxxo
