What Makes A Good Party?

Trying to become a better host or hostess? Need some new ideas for your next party? Check out this entertaining instructional film called What Makes A Good Party? from 1950.


  1. I have always trusted Mississippi State College with my party planning. They're the best!

  2. Those crazy kids sure know to party! ;)

  3. Obviously that should have read: "Those crazy kids sure know HOW to party!"

  4. I've only just found your wonderful blog and it's right up my street! I was searching for mid-century kitchens because we're having an extension on our 1930's house and I just love all things mid-century modern. I want to include lots of elements of the style without making the place seem like a retro film set, if you know what I mean.

    Love this video. Hilarious. Can you imagine going to a party where there's no gin and tonic AND you're expected to take part in organised fun??

  5. "Now let's look back: What made this such a good party?"

    Wow! This was almost painful to watch! Jimmy Crack Corn??? It's obvious that Mississippi State College had yet too integrate. Painfully obvious. A little Fats Domino on the eighty-eights would definitely have livened up that crown.
