Rockabilly Party

The Rockabilly movement started in the 1950s when rock 'n’ roll music fused with blues then later country and western. Artists such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison epitomized this era where the candy-colored '50s took a rebellious turn. Combining this eclectic style of music, all-American fare and vintage-inspired clothing with a retro atmosphere can create a magical affair to commemorate many types of events.

Play vintage tunes from Elvis, Johnny Cash, Wanda Jackson, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison. Later artists such as the Stray Cats evoked the same rockabilly spirit. If your budget allows, consider renting a jukebox full of rock 'n’ roll songs. Adorn your space to resemble a '50s diner with red-and-white-checkered tablecloths, shiny silver napkin holders and vintage bright-colored plastic condiment squirt bottles. Use record albums on tables as place settings instead of place mats. Tack up old 45s onto walls in your party space to include a musical element into the decor. Decorate tables with pairs of fuzzy dice. Use patterned napkins or serving trays to incorporate polka-dots.

Dress the Part

The rockabilly look brings elements of 1950s dress with a modern twist. In addition to wide poodle skirts, girls wore tight capris with peep-toe heels. Bettie-Page-style bangs were popular as was hair piled high and adored with a silk flower or a headband. Red lipstick and black cat's-eye make-up completed the look. Men wore hair slicked back or fashioned in pompadours. Two-toned “bowling” shirts worn with cuffed jeans and vintage saddle shoes were the look for men. Silk flowers for hair and black sunglasses make appropriate party favors.
