Inspiration Request: Rockabilly

I received an inspiration request the other day that proved rather challenging. Here’s what our reader wrote:

Our wedding theme is Rockabilly/50’s. I am having a hard time finding ideas for the reception. We are having a BBQ reception as we are pretty simple and dont really want the hassel of an elaborate reception. Just want to enjoy our day with family and friends. It will be a very laid back. We dont really have any “colors” as we are just trying to look for something fun and reflective of our style.

To me, black and white patterned material (lace, checkers, ploka dot) paired with pops of red is very Rockabilly. Let me know your thoughts. This was a tough one. Thanks to Isabel for the great request and really fun challenge.

    I think glass bottled soda’s would be cool. Some kind of old fashioned soda fountain with cool glasses and a jukebox and stuff like that. Or those old liquor decanter tray things that you always see men drinking from when they come home from work in movies from that time: hang up the fedora and long coat, kiss the wife in an apron, pour a glass of scotch from a cool glass decanter on a fancy tray. Awesome.
