If I could live in one era of my choosing, I would definately pick the 1950's. I think that I missed that portal. I love the idea of fancy dinner parties, wearing ironed dresses all day long, T.V. shows with built-in commercials, soda shops, and Rock n' Roll before it was just Rock. Ah. The simplicity of it all. Or perhaps I have been mislead by popular culture and Hollywood.
I decided that it would be fun to time-warp for an evening, and enjoy a nice, quiet, elegant night with friends, complete with "The Newlywed Game".
Boy was I right. This is the life:
I started with hand-made invitations, (which I would share with you, except I managed to blow up yet another computer. (I really don't know what I do to them...)) Erasing the photographic evidence that I had made them. mailed out per ettiquette, 4-5 weeks in advance. Dinner was Italian-themed and four courses.
All-in-all, even with my car dying on me as I was trying to take my baby to the sitter, it was a good night. I don't know that I'll do them frequently, but I do think that I'd like to do another party sometime.
Thanks again to all who came! It was awesome.
