Teen girls crying & the world absorbing British pop culture was in full force in the 60s. July 20, 1964 - The Beatles released their "Something New" album in the US.
Here's some Beatles' inspired party details to celebrate that day!
These birthday invitations by 45wall design are AMAZING! The fab four would be proud :)
It is so sweet that her 3 yr old has a case of Beatlemania! Check out her party details - they are just as great as the invitation! John was my dad's favorite too. . .
Suzanne of SHEPAPERIE (an amazing talented woman!) created this groovy party for her cute-as-a-button twins: Elle & Liam - aren't those just adorable names?!?
The party invites included 14 Beatles songs in the wording! Mad skills.... Love the photo booth touches with Beatle-esque mustaches and the classic round, Lennon glasses.
“The Ultimate Beatles Fan Bag” party favors included:- a set of Beatles mustaches -rock star sunglasses
-"I Want To Hold Your Hand” clappers that lit up
-”Kaleidoscope Eyes” (a kaleidoscope)
-hippie beads -a microphone -a “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” ring (Ring Pop)
-“Penny Lane” (a roll of pennies)
-rock star candy -and Beatle Juice (a juice box)
She found records at the thrift store and printed new labels and used them as plate chargers. Great idea to use "Ticket to Ride" tickets as napkin rings - this would be a great idea for a Circus/Carnival themed party too!
"All You Need is Love & Sweets" station:
The dessert table incorporated many Beatles references such as “Strawberry Fields Forever” sugar cookies, Marmalade Skies Jam, Apple Records, Marshmallow Pies, and “Yellow Submarines” made from Twinkies, Dot Candy and straws.
I'm digging those DIY record stands she made & those guitar pops - too cute!

To top it all off, there was a salad bar: "Octopus' Garden" - Smart idea to serve the toppings in cylinders with tongs: adds height & helps control cherry tomatoes from rolling around :)
