So many parties to throw, so little time! Maybe one of our awesome followers can throw a 1950s themed party and show it to me? When I recently came across this cool set of 1950s themed party props from Mr & Mrs WTF, I started dreaming about 1950’s aesthetics and thought, how cool to throw a retro party? There are lots of ideas, from a vintage gas station like below, to rockabilly or rock n’ roll inspired, to the classic diner themes. Have a read further down!

I had so much fun creating this 1950’s diner inspired space at home. I used several traditional diner elements like the red baskets, ketchup and mustard bottles, restaurant napkin dispensers and of course the black and white check pattern throughout.

I love party favors that can be used at the party and sent home with guests. Aprons at a baking party, goggles and darts at a nerf party, etc. Our version of that for the 50’s party was these polka dot neck/hair scarves and vintage glasses. The girls had a blast dressing up. Packing them in these pink vintage car favor boxes just added to the fun. Plus it doubles as decor. Link in profile. https://www.5mcreations.com/2018/08/22/50s-diner-birthday-party/
How retro are these cupcake made by Commie’s Cupcakes? You can grab their buttercream cupcake guide here.
The popular checkerboard pattern really helps to complete the look too! Here is the pattern on some straws.
This theme looks really great in pastel blue and pink, or green and pink. Honeycomb decor and lanterns can be used to add colours to the look. These ones are from Lovely Occasions.
