Party Perfect

A fun book on making the perfect party. There are tons of ideas featured in this low-quality (pulp-like) paperback book. The author's name is...(ahem) Gay Head. You can't make up a name like that.


Party Perfect, by Gay Head (with the editors of Co-Ed Magazine). 1959.

    I'm a huge fan of Gay Head. Haha. I have all of her books! This one is a fav!

    Almost all shots (or illustrations) of teenagers at parties during this time show them hanging out with records on the floor. Something about having their records collection strewn all out gives off the impression that they're having a GREAT TIME! I guess. Crazy kids!

    Dig that pin-stripe suit! Are they trying to be "beat-niks" I wonder?

    Thanks alot Ward. Geez.
    All these years, I've been wandering ... "How do I make my parties better? Is it even possible? Could someone tell me please?" And I've been bothered by the lack of answers out there ...
    Until NOW!
    Now I can have a party and make it PERFECT!
    Thanks to you, Ward.
    And Gay Head.

    This is funny. I was showing a friend how works and, being silly, I typed in the word "sluts" and this was on the first page. Thanks to Slim Whitman.
