Mad Men themed New Years Eve Party

This year was the first time we've done anything fun on NYE in a looooooooooooong time. We hosted a NYE party with the fab Mad Men theme.

I had so much coming up with an outfit and finding fun vintage decor at the thrift stores and then decorating the house.

We had about 18 adults and kids at the party and everyone dressed it, it was so much fun!

Here is the set up, I needed place all the dishes out and label what would be on them so I could make room for everything.

food!

the guys trying to be cool and hip. how can you be cool and hip when you look like you coordinated your outfits? Seriously, black tie, white shirt and black pants was the men's theme.

the guys were so hilarious with their fake cigs and real drinks. I just started snapping pics of them trying to get it together for a good pic. they were entertaining to say the least. topics included: skinny jeans, the bieber, anderson cooper and lord knows what else.

i said be cool...

The is cropped from a pic. Liz was on the side and looked so classically 60s with her fake cig and drink.

Since I quit my event planning job in July this is the first party I have planned. I loooooove planning parties so much! I would throw a themed party every month is we had an money tree in our back yard!

I think the next themed party we do will have to be the roaring 20s!
