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….
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)
Retro Christmas Pillow
Vintage Candy Cane Sign
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).
This cocktail has the retro look with a modern sweet twist. All of your guests will look classy walking around with this festive drink.
The Genuine Candy Cane Martini
serves 1 large or 2 small martini’s
2 ounces infused Candy Cane Vodka (recipe to follow)
2 ounces DiSaronno Amaretto
2 ounces International Delight French Vanilla Creamer
Crushed candy canes for rimming the glass
Peppermint stick or candy cane for garnish
Prepare a martini glass by dipping rim of glass in a shallow dish of candy cane vodka or other liquid of choice. Transfer to a shallow dish of crushed candy canes, gently spin in dish until coated. **If you are rimming with large chunks, try brushing a thicker substance such as corn syrup on glass and then gently pressing candy canes onto glass. Set aside.
