Return to a sunnier, more glamorous time with a stellar Golden Oldies party.
Music should take top priority at a Golden Oldies party. Depending on their age and individual tastes, guests will have slightly different perception of what constitutes a Golden Oldie. It would probably be safe, though, to play songs from classic artists like Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Sammy Davis Jr., Liza Minnelli, etc. Go for classic tunes that everyone knows and can dance and hum along to; the host might even plan a sing-along involving golden oldies tunes.
Decorations for a Golden Oldies party should be lovely, lavish, and preferably homemade. The host could post tissue and paper mache banners and streamers in luminous hues of silver, pink, lavender, and of course gold. Guest costumes should be similarly elegant, with ladies and gents alike bedecked in silk and satin; gentlemen might opt for top hats and tails, while ladies might wear lush frocks (knee- or full-length) accented by gold and pearl necklaces and high heels. It always helps if these costumes are handmade, and if budgets donít allow for diamonds and silk then cotton and rhinestones will do.
In keeping with its elegant theme, a Golden Oldies party should offer refined refreshments, such as a homemade gold butter cream cake with ribbons and candies, champagne (sparkly cider for the younger set), mints and nuts.
Anyone with a taste for nostalgia will enjoy a Golden Oldies party. Everything old is new again; celebrate this fact with the ultimate Golden Oldies party!
