 14 in 14
♥fourteen days of vintage Valentines♥

"Here's one party that will be frankly romantic!"

1959 Party Perfect Scholastic TAB book


 what does it take to have the perfect party?! Well, in 1959, at least according to the folks at Scholastic, it involved perfect planning by the "hostess with the mostest!" 
....YES it actually says "hostess with the mostest"!


Every good Sweetheart party has a romantic theme "The accent is on sweethearts and sentimentality"
#1 invite guests ......... their invitation idea: 
Ask your best friends to wear their hearts on their sleeves at 
your home on that well-feted February 14th LITERALLY!
♥Write out invitations on RED HEART CUT OUTS
-one side carries all the pertinent facts about when and where, also instructions to 'bring your heart along' 
-the other side has the guests NAME in LARGE Letters ...thereby creating a name tag 
"Since this party MUST have boys, 
plan your guest list with an equal number of guys and gals..." 
haha the text is cracking me up, but hey that's a cute idea!



they had their party games planned, too! this book suggests
"ROMANTIC RHYMES" 
this is an add a line game ...five minutes and the team with the longest poem wins!
"Valentine, if you'll be mine, the sun will shine, and I'll feel fine...."

"ELOPEMENT"
the guests race through a dress-up game.... the bag is packed to run off and elope on a rainy night... galoshes, gloves, raincoat, umbrella ...each player has to dress themselves run around the chair once , undress, repack the bag...all without making a sound (sneaking off to elope..get it?!)



What was on the menu??

I totally did NOT guess this menu.....

TUNA TOMATOES
TOSSED SALAD
BUTTER ROLLS
PICKLES and OLIVES
and a VALENTINE MARASCHINO CAKE!




♥MORE VALENTINES TOMORROW!♥
