Records were a BIG part of the 50s Sock Hop scene, so using them in your party plans and decorating scheme is a great and easy idea.
I wanted to show you some of my plans to incorporate records into my party decorations.
Use the records as plate chargers at the dinner table.
Use as a cupcake or treat stand.
Melt into a bowl for snacks at your dinner or dessert table.
Stack into a decorative serving tray.
(I don't have an actual picture yet, since I haven't gone and gotten the 45rpm records yet)
Use as a banner behind the dessert table or on the front entrance wall to your party.
