"Mad Men" Party Printables - the Women, plus party ideas

Continuing on yesterday's Mad Men party ideas, today we have printables featuring the women - Betty, Joan, and Peggy.

Naturally, a Mad Men watch party needs an appropriately retro menu.  A few ideas straight from the 1960s:

Drink
AMC has put together a great collection of classic cocktail recipes.  I especially recommend the Sidecar, Tom Collins, and an Old Fashioned without the fruit (fruit was added in the 1970s).

Dish
Deviled eggs
Meatballs - frozen from the store are fine
Ambrosia salad
Hot Cheese Puffs (I've made this exact recipe...they were a hit!)
Chex Mix

 

Ambiance
Music: Crooners like Frank and Tony
Serveware: Browse your local thrift store for vintage serving plates and coupe glasses. Oversized cocktail glasses are a modern invention.

Inspiration
Always Order Dessert's 1960s Cocktail Party (you must check it out...it's the best I've seen online)
Betty Crocker Party Cookbook
Gel Cookery from The Gallery of Regrettable Food
