We dressed up in 1960's cocktail attire. A little consignment dress and vintage cocktail ring for me and a 1960's tie for Andrew.
And our lovely guests came dressed with 60's flaire as well.
Ali even had her hair done. Isn't it lovely?
And Cherolyn styled her own pin curls. Fab, eh?
After all the picture taking (because, really, when are we all dressed up this nicely?) the cocktails began.
Andrew was our bartender. He is good. Really. Andrew served up cocktails from the 1960's. On the cocktail menu: Lime Gimlet, Old Fashioned, Tom Collins, Mojito and a Manhattan.
The bar cart normally acts as Andrew's bedside table, but for this occasion it was put to its original use. Complete with a vintage ice bucket.
As for the borrowed martini glasses, we simply wrote Mad Men on metal rim tags. It made returning the right glasses so much easier.
Kind friends brought food. Thanks Marshal & Cherolyn, Leslie and Rik & Ali. They brought awesome 1960's inspired food. We ate Pigs in Blankets, Deviled Eggs, Salmon Mousse, Shrimp Cocktail, Chips and Dip, Jelly Rolls and other yummy goodness.
We kept the rest of the decoration to a minimum. A cocktail banner.
And Mad Men inspired hoop art.
A fun evening indeed.
