DETAILS

Theme: I've always thought that a retro 50's diner would be the perfect place to host a little one's birthday party. The diner provides a fun atmosphere, perfect kiddie food for a reasonable price, milkshakes, free balloons and a jute box! These photos showcase my new retro cherry printable collection and some ideas on how to create the perfect 50's diner party.

Decorations: The diner itself provides the perfect backdrop for a 50's party, but add some homemade bunting, striped straws, a polka dot tablecloth, some Kandy Kones, cherry printables and you are set!

Food: As mentioned, the diner has a great kids menu like grilled cheese or mini hamburgers and it usually comes with a milkshake! I added vanilla cupcakes with cherry marzipan toppers (by City Sweet Shoppe), cherry heart bars, mini doughnuts with cherry glaze, cotton candy, chocolate dipped cherries, a 7-up cake (by Rene Takes The Cake) and sugar cookies topped with fondant toppers (by Two Sugar Babies).

Party Favors: There are so many possibilities with this theme, but I thought of:
A vintage mason jar with a gingham lid filled with aqua sixlets
Cellophane bags filled with matching treats topped with a tag that reads "with a cherry on top"
Sugar sticks with large 8" attached

Activities: Jute Box. What kid wouldn't love an endless supply of nickles to push those fun buttons to produce jams?
