Early 1960s party ideas

I did a couple searches here and came up with nothing, so I apologize if this is redundant.

I'm turning 50 in January, and am planning a "come as if it's 1961" party. I'm looking for suggestions for food and beverages. So far we've come up with:

Food:
Devilled eggs
Fondue
Cocktail meatballs and wieners
Rumaki
Shrimp scampi or cocktail
Oysters
Stuffed mushrooms
Pigs in blankets
Cheese puffs
Cheese balls
Filled celery (blue cheese/cream cheese)
Chex Mix
Wellingtons
Jello molds

Beverages:
Martinis
Daiquiris
Punch with ice ring
Manhattans
Schlitz
Mai Tais
