Oldies But Goodies Party Plan

The Oldies but Goodies party theme is great for birthday parties of "older" individuals, music themed parties, and retirement parties.

This party plan comes complete with invitations, decorations, food, music, game, and gift ideas.

The Oldies-but-Goodies Party Theme was inspired by the following quote:

“I love everything that's old: old friends, old times,
old manners, old books, old wines.”
~ Oliver Goldsmith


For the party invitation, anything with a Jukebox or Vinyl Records would be appropriate, like the invitation shown above.

The menu for this theme would be quite simple.

Something like burgers and fries with ice cream floats.

Depending on the type of party you are throwing, you'd have a birthday cake or a retirement cake etc.

The music for this party would be all of your favorite Oldies but Goodies.

You can ask your guests to dress in line with the 50's...

Poodle skirts and bobby socks for the girls and jeans, T-shirts, and slicked back hair for all of the Fonzie want-a-bees.

Be prepared to dance the night away.
