A mid-century inspired dinner party

Reconsidered HomeComment

I'm a sucker for theme parties. Who doesn't love an excuse to put together a new outfit or bake a unique dish to share with friends and family? A mid-century modern dinner party not only has the potential for fun, but can be done inexpensively as well.

Just a few funky, vintage finds can help set the vibe for your mid-mod party.

Vintage shops and thrift stores can carry all kinds of unique retro pieces, and you only need a few strategic items to pull it off. Maybe a fondue set and retro bowl for dipping? Or a mid-century inspired brunch featuring a mod coffee carafe and matching tea cups? The possibilities are endless. 


We especially love items with shapes that really reflect the era. Just a few such pieces that have come into the shop lately:

Fondue, anyone?

So throw on your favorite Mad Men-inspired clothing, invite your friends over for deviled eggs, chicken croquettes, and chiffon pie. You're sure to have a memorable evening!
