Betty Crocker's Parties for Children by Lois M. Freeman (Golden Press, 1964)
My mom still has a lot of spiral-bound 1960s Betty Crocker cookbooks--including the Cooky Book of my childhood--so I couldn't resist this similarly bold-covered title, Parties for Children. I love the illustrations and the styling; it's also a window into a very different social world. I suppose that the 50 years between 1964 and 2014 really do mean something! Anyway, I'm listing it in my Etsy shop, but I can only use five images there, and I couldn't stop photographing it, so here is the awesome vintage image surplus!
