50’s Sleepover Style: It doesn’t get better than an indulgent girly overnight with your best gals. Decorate cupcakes, give each other makeovers, and watch movie musicals that everyone can sing along to.pink-retro-1950s-inspiration-board-bridal-shower-cupcakes-edit

What to Wear: Playful polka dots or ladylike silk flowers get the Sandra Dee stamp of approval. Offset the sweetness of these dress silhouettes with sassy saddle shoes and cat eye sunglasses.pink-retro-1950s-inspiration-board-bridal-shower-cupcakes-2
