VTT - Parties





First I have a Tupperware Party invitation postcard--both front and back of the same postcard are shown. This is from sometime in the 1960s. There is a page of Tupperware postcards at Tupper Diva, and a used postcard like this has a 1964 date. I really liked the old styles of Tupperware shown on the card much better than the newer types.

Next is a Betty Crocker's Party Book from 1960. The book includes parties for May Day and Mother's Day.



The May Day party has a basket theme. There are instructions for making two kinds of May baskets and also cupcake baskets.



The Mother's Day section has a menu that "Dad and the youngsters" can prepare and a Mother-and-Daughter tea party with recipes and a pink table setting.







I'm participating in Vintage Thingie Thursday

  3. I'm loving those pink Tupperware bowls on that postcard! And the cover of that cookbook is so cute. I'm not crazy about cooking, but the book looks like it's got alot of great ideas in it!
    Happy VTT!

  4. I remember tupperware parties. I think my grandma had one one time, and I was fascinated with the little key chains they gave away. Have a great VTT!

  9. I got many invitations like this in the 60's and 70's. Tupperware parties were a big deal then. I still have Tupperware from those parties.
    Love the book. I'm sure I had one of those too. I had all the Betty Crocker Books. As a new bride I used them all the time.
