Mad Men Party!

I took the challenge from a friend and decided to sign up for NaBloPoMo. Let's see how this goes!
Fueling my obsession with my favorite show, Friday night we had a Mad Men themed Halloween party with several of
our friends and neighbors. We had close to 30 people and the most perfect weather we could have hoped for in late October.

I'd scoured the thrift stores over and over for serving dishes, table linens, glassware etc. We had deviled eggs, shrimp cocktail, chips and dip (of course) - one friend even brought pimento spread in the jar. Perfect.

How I wish I could have pulled off a Joan - I fear I ended up more like Betty's mother. Oh well - we had a blast!

I've never watched the show, but since lots of people whose tastes I admire are big fans, I tivoed a bunch to tape over the next week.

The party looks like grand fun, but no martinis???

There were martinis! In the picture with the beer and wine there is a list of cocktails: martinis, greyhounds, screwdrivers, etc. Mind you, *I* didn't have a martini - but plenty were consumed!

I caught a glimpse of this show a couple of weeks ago and decided I need to start from the beginning. Maybe it's on DVD? What a great idea for a theme party! Good luck with NaMoBloPo
