VINTAGE HOLIDAYS #3 - Mid-century Modern New Year's Eve Cocktail Party

If you decided to throw a New Years Eve Party at home but you are not sure how to make it cool but effortless, check out the ideas I was collecting for you!

We've just survived the Christmas dinner and lunch guests so what I don't want to do for sure is something fancy, elegant or complicated...what is easy but cool sticking to the vintage theme?
A mid-century modern cocktail party, what else!

First let's see some photos "mood board style" to get the feeling, than cocktail and apetizer recipes and finally Etsy finds as usual

Mid-century Modern New Years Eve Party
You couldn't go wrong with a bit of mid-century coolness, all you need is a record player stuffed with 60s music, a Med Man style cocktail bar and a buffet with some atomic era bowls, pyrex and cathrineholm filled with "chips and dips" and party snacks

VINTAGE HOLIDAYS - Antique Style Christmas Dinner

After the Retro Halloween and Shabby Chic Thanksgiving, this time I was collecting some interesting ideas how to decorate our home for a Christmas dinner in a vintage way.

I would do an elegant white and gold "Antique style Christmas Dinner", as usual I was collecting some inspiring pictures and great vintage finds from Etsy

If I manage, I would like to post a few pictures of the Christmas decor of our home and other places I will visit during the Holidays (yes, my future-in-laws for sure :)

What is more chic than gold and white together? And it's so easy, all you need is a white base, let's say a beautiful old linen tablecloth, than just mix antique and modern, like antique silverware and modern glasses, and give it a unique taste with some interesting (inexpensive) details as cotton branches in a vase, lavender flowers in the drinks or white porcelain tableware hanging from the chandeliers
