Capture a fun, more innocent era with a 50s sock hop.
To stage the perfect sock hop, the host could transform the party area into a period dance hall; hanging handmade streamers of red, green, blue and gold from the ceiling and stick on wall appliqués of symbols that represent this time. These could include guitars, leather jackets and musical notes.
Guests could come dressed in their favorite 50s style fashions, with guys dusting off their prized leather jackets and greasing up their hair into pertinent pompadours. The ladies, meanwhile, could wear cute pony tails, saddle shoes, and handmade poodle skirts. People of both genders could spiff up their outfits with sunglasses, party socks in various designs, letter jackets and decorative handmade pins.
Dancing and music, of course, form an integral part of any 50s sock hop. Guests could cut the rug to period classics like “Great Balls of Fire” by Jerry Lee Lewis, “Who’s Sorry Now?” by Connie Francis, “Fever” by Peggy Lee, “Peggy Sue” by Buddy Holly, any ‘50s era song by Elvis Presley (the King of Rock’n’Roll), and “La Bamba” by Ritchie Valens. And they can demonstrate their own variations on signature 50s dances like “The Bop,” “The Stroll,” “Swing,” and “The Hand Jive.” Overseeing these proceedings could be a ‘greaser’ DJ who likens Alan Freed; the disc jockey who coined the term ‘rock’n’roll.” This disc-spinning professional should offer a nice mix of hard rocking dance tunes and slow dance specialties.
Make friends and family bop and swing at a rockin’ 50s sock hop. Long live Rock’n’Roll!
