A traditional birthday party

A traditional birthday party concentrates on the basics: games, food, activities, and good times!

The girls are all “dressed up” including fancy hair bows, purses, party cloths, and dressy shoes. After a few games, such as drop the cloths pins into a bottle, musical chairs, a hula hoop contest they all gathered around while the birthday girl opened her gifts. Gifts included board games, books, and a wicker bike basket.   The party table was set with a fabric cloth, party plates, napkins, crepe paper surprise balls and paper party cups full of candy and nuts. And of course, ice cream and cake was served.

Children often enjoy all girl or all boy parties at this age. This  photo was taken at my sister’s birthday party (mid 1950’s).

It just so happens her birthday is today, happy birthday Sharon!
