Retro Diner Birthday Party

We threw my dad a Diner themed party this past week for his Birthday. He loved it and really enjoyed it. I made a playlist of oldies diner type music and had it playing as well. I had so much fun looking and finding ideas and stuff. Pinterest is a must stop for anything!!! Here are some photos.

Mom made the cake!! I loved it. I had the little dancing people forever in a box off a cake on year.
 Ice Cream Sundae Bar. I put a table cover out. Then we had the Sundae bowls(you can find any like it at most dollar stores) I made little ads and put them in a clear picture frame. I had pictures from varies places. I took the diner looking ones and I edited them into little pictures and taped them on the cover and walls.
 I ordered scene setters off the internet. I found these under a seller on Amazon!
 More Scene setters and pictures I have taken and edited to look like wall pictures. I got 25 free through a deal one day at Walgreens!!

 I was so excited when I found the Diner baskets at the Dollar General for 4/1.50!! I sat out the old style Mcd's glasses we had bought the awhile back when they were selling them. I used old records we had as place settings. I put a cup under a record and made a little stand in the middle. I place a mustard and ketchup bottle,fake menu I made,napkins and a daily special ad I made on top of it. I used the black and white checkered table cover.

 Took a picture I had and made a ad. I bought a bucket at the dollar tree along with the coke glass. I bought the straws at Hobby Lobby. Then I put the old fashion glass bottle Crush sodas in the bucket with ice.
 I found the Root Beer Float recipe on Pinterest. I bought the small coke glasses at the Dollar Tree. I put Chocolate pudding in the bottom and topped it with whipped topping and a cherry. I cut a straw in half for decor look of it. 
 I found these little hot dog holders at Dollar General for 4/1.00
 I had the labels. I took these small little paper bags at hobby lobby and cut them in two. I used the top half to make the French Fry Holder cause it had the little ripple cut at the top. I took the bottom half and make Onion Ring holders. Was trying to go for the paper fry bag holder look.
 The food table. I used a table cover and old records to put the stuff on.
Made a fake menu cover and a ad like a daily special with what we were having!

This was loads of fun to plan. I love planning themed parties!!! Can't wait to plan another one!!
