Okay, its kinda weird, bu have you thought about records as centerpieces? Each table could be a labeled a different Frank song. And while his records might be a little pricey, is there a possiblity of getting old records from the 1950s from other artists?

What was common flowers for nightclubs of the 1950s?

 

BTW love your theme! 🙂 Will you be going with a traditional 1950s dress?

flowerofeden:  Tolsby double sided frames from Ikea are great for table names. You could name the tables after Sinatra songs and include a pic of the album cover. This pic shows one of the key Vegas hotels- but there were only a few of them- not enough for most weddings.

Come Fly with Me for the cake or dessert table?

Matt was talking about having Frank Sinatra's "Come Fly with Me" be our first dance, how cool is this?

many elements overlap with Old Hollywood

you could frame posters of the Rat Pack in lights, or use the idea to frame wedding photos of your parents, grandparents, or pic of the couple

ostrich feather centerpieces with Eiffel tower vases can be pricey. You can get the same fell with a boa wrapped around the base of a hurricane vase

this is one theme where it is appropriate to use mirrors as  base for the centerpiece

If you use a taller crystal vase, you could use martini glasses as tealight holders instead of traditional votives

We have these colored crystals!! use them anyway you like to dress up your tables!

you could have a “cigarette girl” visit the tables and present your favors

have a red velvet rope and stanchions

If it’s not too late my plans are similar. Have you ever been to a Delmonico’s Steakhouse ( it’s in Albany NY) but it’s that theme! Here is my Pinterest of ideas, of course mine is a bit random because our date may or may not be in the winter and wanted to incorporate love bird theme (or not) anyway here it is:
