Soda Shop Background - these were the most happening places to hangout with friends during this period. To help you achieve such look, use the infamous red swivelling stools and a chrome-plated countertop for your bar. Also, hire and place a big neon signage of a vintage soft drink advertisement.
Rock and Roll Inspired Decoration - adorn your walls with guitars and posters of famous musicians and icons from the 50s. Additionally, display photographs or posters of Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and James Dean to complement the theme.
Hire a Jukebox - music and entertainment are two core ingredients to a successful get-together. Having your own musical box will definitely raise the energy in the room. You and your guests can take turns playing your favourite songs from the era and show off your dancing skills in cha-cha or swing.
