Retro Christmas Music

Add a Retro Style to your Holiday Gathering

The clock is ticking but there is still time to shake things up this year with a Retro themed Christmas Party. These 5 simple steps will show you how….

Decor

Retro decor will set the tone for your gathering and give it that old world charm. Keep it simple by adding a couple of decorative pillows for the couch, decorative sign & tablecloth. Voilà! Simple & fun. (note: the pillows are sold separately from these pillow cases)

Music

Take your guests back to the 50s with over two hours of Christmas classics. For extra fun, play the classic  movie White Christmas in the background (with the sound off of course).
