Grease is one of those iconic movies that defines moments in time forever. I’m sure everyone remembers where they were when they first saw it. I was 5 or 6, and used to watch it with my best friend across the road.
It wasn’t until I was older that I got the jokes and realised how adult it was!
When we were asked to style a Grease themed 40th birthday, we shaped up and got lost in all of the fabulous 50’s details.
As soon as guests entered they were welcomed with a classic car and actors dressed as a T Bird and Pink lady. The car was set against a silver sequinned backdrop, to make it and models pop. The installation became a fun photo booth as performers encouraged people to stop and snap some insta-worthy shots complete with Rydell High themed props.
Guests entered the marquee by walking a T-Bird black carpet, flanked by two life sized balloon sundaes on either side.
Once inside, they were enveloped in music from the Grease sound track coming from a light up juke box.
Comfortable seating was provided in the form of velvet lounges in the same shade as Pink Lady jackets, and black coffee tables. Floral sundae centrepieces and candles were placed on coffee tables, and cocktail tables dressed in black sequins.
A delicious dessert buffet boasted themed cookies, cupcakes, and lollies in light pink, black and white, with an incredible Grease birthday cake as the centrepiece.
To ensure guests will never forget this fabulous night, we created themed goodie bags in T-Bird and Pink Lady designs.
All of the guests danced and dined until the wee hours, and lived their very own Grease story for one night only.
It was such a pleasure to plan and style this fabulous 50’s diner themed Grease Birthday party, and we would love to do it all again!
