We recently had this celebration at my school and I about fell over laughing at the little old ladies that showed up. Many of them wore their sweatpants with a turtle neck tucked in and added extra padding to their tummies. Make sure your waist band is pulled up as high as you can get it.
Others used walkers and wore their night gowns. You can get silver hair spray to change the color of your hair.
Wear some gaudy costume jewelry, especially with a pin. If you don't have any, ask an elderly friend or go to the local thrift store. Clip on earrings are a must too! Too bad you don't live close, my mom has a lot of this stuff you could borrow.
These are great ideas! I can't wait to see what they all look like at school. I am sure it will be funny. They had a 50's day ont he 50th and it was so cute!! They even had a Sock-Hop and Root Beer Float party.We thought it was halarious the week before when my daughter came home saying their teacher had a lot of big bottles of coke and beer in their room!
