Our Sock Hop party plans continue on.
Today, I'm showing you my Fifties Dinner Tablescape.
I kept my turquoise and hot pink color that's running through my Sock Hop party.
I couldn't find a cheap tablecloth in a matching color, so I hit the bed sheet section at Walmart. They have colored sheets, and if you purchase the Twin size flat sheet, you can get a tablecloth for only $4.00.
I fell in love with the Black and White checkered flooring of the old diners, so I made a matching table runner to go down the center of my dinner table.
To make that, I simply cut 4 inch squares of black and white card stock and taped them together on the underside into a diagonal square pattern. Turned out CUTE!
I found these great ceramic Salt and Pepper shakers at Hallmark. I just LOVE them!
They look like old fashioned Ketchup and Mustard containers so they fit perfectly with the 50s Diner Theme.
For the place settings, I bought some old Coca Cola mugs from Dollar Tree. (Gotta love that store for cheap party accessories!)
For each place setting, I used a large record I bought from my local Goodwill as a plate charger.
I found these Hot Pink plates at the party section of Walmart. (Hobby Lobby has a set that I REALLY wanted, but at 4.00 each, I just couldn't justify it...especially since this wasn't a 40% off coupon week.)
I finished off my place setting with silverware and my napkins and napkin rings.
I REALLY love the way the whole thing worked out.
What do you think?
