Birthday parties are fun! They needn't be elaborate. Any time children get together with paper hats, balloons and cookies, it's a party! Just a little preparation will make it a party to remember. (from the Introduction)

{HISTORY}

This is what it a party looked like in 1963! Creative, manageable, fun and full of heart, Better Homes & Gardens' 1963 Birthdays and Family Celebrations book provides a bevy of party planning ideas and recipes to celebrate all the big moments in life - from birthdays to bridal showers, holidays to anniversaries. Back in the 60's colors were bright, decorations were handmade and the atmosphere was full of whimsy when it came to throwing a party that everyone would remember. What makes this vintage book especially loveable today is their creative suggesstions when it came to planning theme parties both for children and adults. How about an art colony party for kids in the backyard where a mini Greenwich village art scene is pulled together with art paper and paints. Or a let-there-be-light bridal shower where illumination is the theme and gifts include anything light-related - lamps, patio string light, candles, reflecting mirrors etc. In our day and age of being overly bombarded with ideas for the perfect party, this book is a fun place to gather inspiration that is fresh, original and not what everybody else is doing. A big dose of vintage charm goes along here!

With over 7,000,000 million annual subscribers to their magazine, BH & G is one of the longest running magazines in American publishing history.

American nostalgia blows out the candles on this fun book for sure!
