"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

"Mad Men" Party Printables - the Men

Scandal and style in the 1960s returns this Sunday night - it's the Season 4 premiere of Mad Men!

Are you hosting a watch party?  How fun!  You can use these printables to jazz up your swizzle sticks or as coasters.  And yes, I know people are often fond of putting printables on cupcakes...but no, sorry.  Mad Men and cupcakes do not go together.  Please restrain yourself.

Today I have quotes by Bertram, Pete, Don, and Roger and tomorrow I'll feature quips by Betty, Joan, and Peggy.

My source for the characters is AMC's "Mad Men Yourself" site.  First launched for last year's season premiere, the site has been updated with new options for Season 4.  Check it out!
