Cocktail Party Month: Party Planning Part 2

Once you've assembled your guests, it's time to get the party started! Even if you don't live in a fabulous vintage home, you can set the mood with a few easy things! (Part 1 here)

Play some great music! I'm a fan of Bing Crosby and The Puppini Sisters. Both have great holiday albums out for your holiday party.

Assemble some great party favors. A tube of drug store red lipstick is a great touch. Add a string of cheap faux pearls for some glamor. (Forever 21 has them for ~$2). A sassy Anne Taintor magnet is a great reminder that vintage glamor is accesible every day!

You could also have on a great vintage holiday movie! I love White Christmas and Holiday Inn but feel free to share your favorite with your guests.


  1. I love The Puppini Sisters, Renee Olstead too. Do you listen to her as well??

    1. I've not heard of Renee before but I'll definitely check her out!

  2. Delightful tips! I adore White Christmas, too. It's my all-time favourite Christmas movies and one of my favourite movies in general, too.

  3. I love Holiday Inn! Much more than White Christmas, I must confess. I also like The Thin Man, too. Not Christmas-themed, as much, but it takes place during Christmas and has the craziest Christmas eve party. :D
