our mad men premiere party!

{libations}

{martinis for everyone}

{garnish}

{vintage accessories}

{the inspiration}

{we heart mad men}

{with a twist}

{mix it up}

Kiwi and I are Mad Men fanatics {okay, mostly me but Kiwi is pretty hooked too} so when Season 4 kicked off I knew we had to celebrate. We drank martinis and Manhattans and snacked on retro appetizers like pigs in a blanket and port wine cheese balls. Add a little Chubby Checker on the stereo and you've got yourself a party. I think Don Draper would be proud.

*Grandmas are the best source for Mad Men inspiration. Mine was kind enough to lend me the awesome fur stole and vintage pearls. Man, those were the days...

    we've been tempted to have a mad men party... but we don't have cable. so i always wonder if people will show up and be confused why we're not watching.

  6. I had been waiting for pics of this! I do love Mad Men . . . and costume parties! You and Kiwi looked fab, and I completely felt like I was looking at a picture from the sixties when I saw the pic of Christy and Andrew -- amazing. The pic was like "Ah, thank you for pouring me a drink, Mr. Draper -- I mean, Brother Drew Bear!"

  23. You guys ROCK. I SO want to come to your party! Loving the outfits.

    Miss P and I were so excited that SBS over here in Oz was screening Mad Men (we've finished season 3 on DVD). We thought it was season 4 like you guys are getting and were gutted that it's only season 3. So now we have to wait. Boo hiss!
