Back in the 1950's just about every bride-to-be was expected to become "just-a-housewife" and mother after she was married so when it came time to plan her bridal shower, it was basically a Stock the Kitchen kind of affair. Not that there's anything wrong with that. There isn't. In fact, most bridal shower gifts are intended for kitchen use even today!
But... we do not expect every woman who's getting married to become a slave to her kitchen but that doesn't mean she wouldn't want some nice new things for when she AND her new husband decide to do some heavy cooking in there.
And that's what makes a good old-fashioned 1950's Housewife or Stock the Kitchen theme SO MUCH FUN!
Take the bride and all of her friends and family back to a simpler time with a 1950's Housewife bridal shower party. All the food should be from the 50's and for an even better time, have everyone dress the part. We're talking Poodle skirts and Saddle shoes with ankle socks, Pill Box hats and pearls, and don't forget white gloves and aprons for everyone!
If the bride-to-be and her sweetie like to cook, or want to learn how together after they're married, a Stock the Kitchen bridal shower is sure to be a hit. Gift ideas would be small appliances, bakeware, pots and pans, tableware and all kinds of kitchen utensils.
Party ideas might include a cooking lesson, recipe swap, cookie baking or anything else food related.
Fun food serving suggestions would be anything they liked to cook and serve during the 50's such as cake from scratch, finger sandwiches, cold salads, fruit-filled Jello molds, meat loaf and hot casseroles such as mac and cheese or tuna.
Kara's Party Ideas has some really adorable ideas to help you plan the best 1950's bridal shower ever! The color scheme is mostly red, white , and aqua. And just about everything is covered in polka-dots! There's lots of gorgeous photos too.
