1950's theme party ideas

ike. | Dec 16, 2008 06:05 AM

I have a work party tomorrow afternoon, and the theme was just given to me this morning. (Gee, thanks!) The theme is 1950's.

There are only 5 of us participating, so my contribution has to coordinate with what's already being brought. And it has to be fairly basic (i.e. no herring) to appease the limited palates I am working with. So far, the list is:

- tater tot hotdish
- deviled eggs
- chex mix
- grasshoppers / pink squirrels

I don't want to cop out by bringing a pickle/olive tray. My only ideas so far are to do a jello mold with canned fruit inside, or else maybe a cheese ball. I'm a product of the 80's, so my knowledge of the 50's is not exactly very deep.

If you have any great ideas, please pass them along!
