50's Diner Theme 60th Birthday Party

My Dad is a child of the 1950's and has a strong connection to that era.  For his 60th Birthday, we celebrated with a Surprise 50's Diner Theme Birthday Party. The party was hosted at a place known locally as "The Hawksbill".  It's been around for years and has a ton of character all on it's own.

The "Diner" counter was open to guests all night where they 
could order burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese and fries

Mini Jukebox and vintage Rock-n-Roll 
sign completed the diner atmosphere
A slideshow played throughout the night with this
cutout made to look like a car at a drive-in. The figures
in the car were traced from an actual photo of my parents-
yes my Dad used to sit and stare at my Mom like that!

Classic cars parked around the entrance to the party greeted
the guest of honor when he arrived.

  1. Hello I'm trying to search for the 50s bar scene with the stools wallpaper and I just cant find it. Please let me know what it is called and where did you buy it from. I love it and want to use it for a stage production.
