Tonight my husband and I are having a 50s party in our newly built 50s Diner in our yard. I wanted a vintage diner and he wanted a vintage gas station so we agreed on a middle, the outside is just like a Sinclair vintage gas station and the inside is a diner. We live on 3 acres and we just bought 3 acres next to us so we have plenty of room for a play room!
Here is the inside of the 50s diner as you walk through the front door. I couldn't get the neon sign above the bar to come out in the picture, it says D & A Diner, for Don and Ann's Diner in different colored neon lights.
For years we have been collecting 50s wall memorabilia anticipating one day we will get our 50s diner.
I had all the booths and chairs on both sides of the room covered in red and white vinyl to match a 1957 Chevrolet Belair car. On the shelf you can't see very good but I have a collection of small gas station pumps.
We have 6 fans in the ceiling and they are from the 50s. They are all belt driven from a motor sitting above the front door.
Behind the counter it is all stainless steel with all commercial appliances such as a huge griddle, burners, BBQ, ice cream freezer, refrigerator, microwave, ice machine, soda box, etc.
I bought these wax donuts over at BrightViewCandles Etsy store. Look how real they look! They also smell so good! I have them sitting in a covered cake plate on the counter just like in a real diner!
This is the outside of the building, a vintage Sinclair Gas Station with old gas pumps and a old 1956 Pick up truck sitting in the gas stall. I took the picture at night so that the neon signs could show up but they aren't.
Now, what does all this have to do with Pink Saturday??? Here is the jacket I will be wearing to our 50s party.....Perfect for Pink Saturday!
