Things to Make & Take


Take a selection of half aprons & some string to create a washing line full of ‘50’s style laundry. Just look on eBay under ‘bulk order of vintage half aprons’. They are great in creating your 1950’s hen weekend domestic goddess look.

Dress-up Box

Not only is this great for those struggling or forgetting outfits but they look great just out on display in your cottage. You can get great deals on Amazon, just look under 1950’s style dresses.

1950’s magazines

Create some 1950s mags, either buy the real deal off eBay, or, make your own by sticking a 1950’s image on the front of a current magazine (then you can get all the latest news at the same time!).

1950’s images

Decorate your cottage with 1950s images (although don’t damage the walls) or create a board with images from the 1950s.

Vintage Crockery

If you trawl the charity shops you’re sure to come across some vintage teapots, plates and bowls which will add that 1950s feel. You can then donate them back after the event.
