During the late 1940s and early 1950s, a popular musical wave emerged from a combination of African-American genres such as blues, boogie-woogie, jump blues, jazz, and gospel music. It was one of the greatest cultural creations of that century. We are talking about Rock & Roll, a type of music that has influenced ideas, lifestyles, fashion, attitudes, and language. That’s why it’s a perfect theme for your next party.
From Bill Haley and The Comets, to Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry. Rock & Roll has delivered great artists and it’s still much alive. So take note of the following ideas to create a perfect atmosphere during your theme celebration.
It won’t be a Rock & Roll party if you don’t tell your invitees to dress appropriately. For girls, there are many possibilities. A long skirt with a blouse or t-shirt, blazer and sport shoes or heels is a good idea. However, a polka-dot dress with a scarf is also great. And if you feel more conservative try a leather jacket, t-shirt, tight jeans, and classic converse shoes.
For boys it’s easier: leather jacket, white t-shirt, black jeans, aviator glasses, and classic converse shoes. Nevertheless, you are welcome to wear the Teddy Boy suit or leather pants if you feel fancy.
Remember, puffy hair is important for men and women. It’s part of the whole outfit!
Burgers and fries! That’s so Rock & Roll!
It’s simple. Just offer mini burgers and some chili-cheese fries. For sure, everyone will be happy. Meanwhile, beer is a great choice for this kind of party, but don’t forget some cocktails. For non-alcoholic beverages, take in consideration sodas and milkshakes. Let’s rock!
Complete the whole experience with rock star gifts for your guests: inflatable guitars and microphones, temporary tattoos, notepads, pencils, sunglasses, silly straws, bracelets, fun bands, guitar picks, drumsticks, and lollipops.
