Thrifty Fifties! October 9, 2010

I can hardly express how excited I am for tomorrow’s 1950s cocktail party! I have been anticipating and planning this party for weeks now in order to make this a night to remember, full of laughter, delicious food, and amazing style!  Along the way I have discovered what great resources thrift stores can be for throwing decade themed parties.  From dishes to dresses second-hand is definitely the way to go.  Almost all of the glass serving trays and cocktail glasses we will be using tomorrow night were found at thrift stores ranging in price from $1-$5 (by the way, Goo Gone was my best friend today as I spent an hour de-gooing price stickers). I also can’t wait to serve my cheese fondue out of an adorable fondue set I bought for $8! In addition to dinnerware, clothes can be a fantastic find, especially at thrift stores with vintage sections.  Today a few of the hostesses and our guests went on an adventure to a nearby second-hand clothing store in search for 1950s outfits.  Although second hand shopping can be hit or miss, a few of us found some great items that will really help pull together the night’s theme.  Gosh, this night will just be swell!
