Celebrate an upcoming birthday with a retro twist by throwing a 50's Sock Hop. Dressing up in a poodle skirt and sipping a milkshake is fun at any age!
Poodle skirts can be found on most costume websites or in costume shops, but they are also simple to make from a large circle of fabric and an iron-on poodle patch -- AnniePoodleSkirts.com

For added fun, fill tall milkshake glasses with patterned paper straws -- Bake It Pretty
