1950's Diner Party!

1950's Diner Party ~ Full Party Post
                                   My sweet little girl just had her birthday, and we celebrated in 1950's diner style!

Cake design by Izzy! I crafted every little food from fondant and sugar paste to create a 1950's diner counter top. I made the sign and other edible elements, to match our 50's backdrop.

We had so much fun planning and constructing every detail of this party! Elvis tunes played in the background while we enjoyed burgers, fries and milkshakes!

The Cake...

The Desserts...
  • Izzy's Diner Cake with three flavs of cake~ chocolate, vanilla and strawberry, reminiscent of the traditional milkshake flavors.
  • Milkshake cupcakes! Available in chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate malt.
  • My molded cookie art ~ cherry cookies! Many more fun designs coming soon!
  • Frosted doughnuts. We bought plain doughnuts (Brother's) and frosted them with a sugar glaze.
  • Vanilla milkshakes with a cherry on top!
  • Gumball & M&M Milkshake

Using black foam board and white chalk, Izzy and I created this 1950's counter top backdrop.  This design was a popular 50's counter top.  Vintage soda bottles are a great addition to this 50's party.

I'm all shook up, over these adorable pegs from Jenny of
Elvis and 1950's girl peg!

We used real flooring tiles attached to cardboard for the flooring, real diner stools(someday in my bakery storefront,) and constructed the Izzy's Diner sign from foam board and Christmas lights. 
We had so much fun creating all of these unique party elements!
The Fun...
We always enjoy dressing up for our parties!!!

   I just love helping friends style great parties! 
I usually just get to make the cake and some yummy favors, but sometimes I dabble on the crafty side of things.  Here is a Chevron and Polka Dot 1st birthday bash, styled by myself and Rachel Bankaci.

The original cake design is by the talented and sweet Maria of Love and Sugar Kisses 

The ruffled garland is by the sweetest party gal I know, Jenny from Craft That Party

Rachel put together the adorable favors, bags by and chevron spoons by

I made the 12month banner, birthday girl banner and flowers for the centerpieces.  Lots of fun in chevron and polka dots.  We found a lot of the items at Michael's.  The pretty pink poms by
