Why You Should do a Sock Hop this Holiday Season

With the holidays approaching, now is the perfect time to begin planning a fun and festive event for your friends and family.  There are several holiday activities that you could choose from.  Why not add an annual sock hop as a new tradition?

Strolling right down memory lane can be  memorable experience for all.  With a few simple things to think about and prepare you’ll quickly be ready to amaze everyone with you’re great entertainment.  These include invitations, decorations, costumes, food, music and games.

There are many creative ways to invite your guests to your party. You could use black construction paper to make a record, inviting people to come for a “swinging party.”  You could cut out a picture of a clock and inviting people to come “rock around the clock” at your sock hop.  There are many possibilities.  Just put something along with your 50’s theme.

Next you need to start thinking decorations.  You could set your room up like a high school gym, or a diner.  Add an old-fashioned jukebox and you have a decoration and entertainment in one.

Costumes really help people to get in the spirit of things.  Encourage your guests to come in costume by offering a prize for the best costume.  Poodle skirts and ponytails are very popular costumes for the ladies.  Boys can don white shirts and jeans with the legs rolled up.  Throw on a Letterman’s jacket or a black leather jacket and your set.

Food is one of the best parts of these parties.  Simple hamburgers and fries will work wonders.  Put them in an old fashioned basket with paper and your set.  Have someone bring them out on Roller-skates and voila, definite crowd pleaser.

Make sure that you have plenty of music from the 50’s to liven things up.  Elvis is always a winner.  There are several fun things to do such as the limbo or the twist that will help guests to mingle and get in the spirit of things.

This holiday season instead of just thinking of something fun to do, do it.  This is the perfect time for a sock hop.  With a little planning you’ll soon be able to rock around the clock with friends and family this fall.
