It was hubby's birthday and I wanted to do something different than we normally do this year so I came up with a theme party for him. He LOVES Archie commic books so I decided to go with an Archie theme.
I started off with a red and white check tablecloth I picked up at Dollarama.
And hung a small disco ball from the light.
I wanted to give a diner type feel.
I printed off some Archie comics onto 8 1/2 x 11 sheets and had them laminated for placemats.
I was hoping to find round plastic baskets but had to settle for rectangle ones.
With the addition of tin foil and wax paper they were the perfect container for the burgers and fries with a bit of a retro look.
I was able to find some Archie glasses - thanks to e-bay.
And some bobbleheads for the center of the table.
Again thanks to e-bay.
And a cute little pull back car driven by Betty.
I added some stacks of comic books and a "reserved" sign to the center of the table.
The napkins were folded to hold the cutlery and straw.
And were pinned together with Archie themed pins.
Of course, it wouldn't be complete without the classic Coke bottles.
I added a sign near the dining room entrance.
Once the party got started I forgot to get pictures of the Burger Bar and yummy milkshakes topped with real whipped cream.
However, I did remember to get a picture of the fabulous cake made by some friends of my daughter.
They did an amazing job and it tasted delicious :)
We all had a wonderful time celebrating hubby's birthday and he thoroughly enjoyed his theme party.
Now, time to start planning my daughter's 18th!
I am joining Marty at "A Stroll Through Life" for Tabletop Tuesday
