1950's Diner themed party




Mark's parent's turned 60 this year...we decided on a 1950's theme party since they were born in '55. We had so much fun planning, brainstorming, and setting up for this awesome night! 


We came up with some fun games as well, all having to do with the 1950's trivia. I can't forget to mention "costumes were encouraged" as well.


We used the "sock hop" items as well as the diner look. We served burgers and french fries as dinner. Floats and whoopie pies for dessert. There was cake too! ;) The prizes for the fame winners went with the theme as well. They included a slinky, silly putty, etc. 



Take home favors included a glass bottle of coke and a record shaped cookie. We used the entry table to display so friends wouldn't forget. 


The candy table was my favorite part! We had it set up as soon as friends entered the basement...it was all candy circa 1950's...


What party is complete without a photo booth!?!? There was a timer set up so everyone could take their own photos...it was so much fun! (I am so thankful Kelley and Tyler have been included as "part of the family.") 




Despite the crazy weather it's safe to say everyone had a great time celebrating such an awesome couple we get to call our family/friends...
