We are understanding that it’s still “Safer at Home,” but let’s be honest, we miss eating at a restaurant. We also need a change of scenery, so we came up with a solution…a diner themed dinner at home!
First things first, clear the kitchen table and decorate! We thought this pink, mint, light blue and yellow color scheme was the perfect combination to make us feel like we’re right back in a 50’s retro diner. We used Bubble Mint and Mint to Be from our Posh Collection for the paper products and this pink and white striped table runner for decor. The best part about using these products is that they’re super cute and they make for an easy cleanup – can’t beat that!
Now, onto what’s for dinner. Emulate a real dine-in experience by creating a menu, printing it out and taking orders to let your family pick and choose what they want. Keep the options simple, but don’t make yourself a short order cook! Keep it fun by grabbing your chef hat and tiny little sous chefs and get to cookin’!

Finally, onto our favorite part…dessert! No diner experience is complete without a milkshake. Grab your favorite flavor of ice cream and add 4 large scoops (about 1 and 1/2 cups) to a blender. Blend it together with 1/4 cups of milk. Pour into one of our 12 oz Posh Cups and then garnish with whipped cream, sprinkles and a maraschino cherry!
We would love to see how you create your at home diner! Tag us @jollityco and use hashtag #partywithjollity
