Party Recap

We decided it would be fun to do a Retro party for our returning soldier. We had a lot of fun making the paper decorations (we used our Cameo Silhouette for many of them) and of course theming the food and drinks. This party would also totally work for a Mad Men theme.

  • Desserts

    Pineapple Upside Cake, Lemon Bundt Cake, Coke Floats, ice cream sandwiches, Chocolate Cupcakes, Ambrosia Salad

  • Party Favors

    Candy Cigarettes and Paper Cat Eyeglasses for photo ops

  • What People Ate

    Retro cocktail appetizers, Chicken A La King over rice, Swedish Meatballs, Ramaki.

  • What People Drank

    Old Fashioned, various High Balls in retro glasses, cokes in glass bottles and some 'vintage' soda pops
