A Mad Men Holiday {how to deck your halls}

A handful of my Twitter friends are looking to throw Mad Men parties, so I'm sharing my photos & tips from our vintage night here at Dean Street!

 {Artwork by our phenomenal friend Dana Tanamachi! Blessed to have such talented people in our community!}

{Creating a Winter Wonderland: white lights, paper garland chains, silver garlands, paper snowflakes & silver swirls hanging from the ceiling, in window sills & drapped from corner to corner. We invited friends over for a holiday movie & craft night to cut out the snowflakes.}

{Welcoming guests when they walk in ... Wall Mural: plaid wrapping paper, vintage dress pattern I picked up at Brooklyn Flea for $2, vintage advertisements printed on my home printer & framed with black paper from an art store, black letters from the party store & paper snowflakes.}

{Glowy lighting & bright colors all throughout the house, including a Christmas tree made from playing cards from our Wonderland party, red ribbons from a costume & tiny ornaments. I love when I come up with something creative from what's already in the house!}

{Little details like a basket of holiday themed props for the chalkboard photo spot, a record player with vintage classics & vintage photographs made on our home printer on the refridgerator.}

{For our parties, I take the lead on decor & Best Friend is all about the food. She researched appetizers of the period for authenticity, served fancy looking holiday cocktails with Heineken since that was a campaign on Mad Men, & had not only vintage candy but printed wrappers for candy cigarettes. She's so good!}

Coming up next, how to Mad Men your wardrobe for the soiree ...
