The front patio welcomed our groovy peeps.
At the front door Sir Elton offered an invite.
The living room was decorated with banners made of vintage fabric, daisies and a few sweet treats.
A centerpiece of happy candy.
She loves me…
Retro candy. Can ya dig it?
Did you “smoke” these as a child?
The classically yummy Chick~O ~Stick. (All candy came from my favorite sweet shop~Smeeks.)
I was horrified when I picked up the cake. I asked for tie dye and daises. Hello, Cake Wrecks?
Give me glitter~STAT! Plus a quick rummage through Sweet Boy’s toy box and the cake was saved.
Far out vignette’s were placed in every nook and crannie.
A trip to Savers netted a classic cookbook.
I found this darling journal at Anthro a few months back.
I embellished the plain interior pages just a bit.
It will serve as a reminder of tye dyed doilies and hand sewn invitations. Everyone at the party also signed the album making it all the more precious.
Party central. (The bright rainbow paper gave instructions for fondue how to.)
You can’t have a 70’s Soiree without Watergate Salad.
Or classic ruffles with French onion dip.
I found some great avocado green trays in the Target dollar section. The party ware came from Party City.
Of course there were casseroles, a 70’s staple.
Sangria to wash it all down. The classic punchbowl and cups were a Goodwill find.
The weather was perfect.
A few tambourines if you feel musically inclined.
A lovely breeze had the banners blowin’ in the wind.
Come on get happy.
Our good friend Mrs. Roper and her husband Jimmy Connors.
Who can make the sunshine?
Max channeling his inner Keith Richards.
Stepford wives have nothing on us. (Mel, Jackie, me, Jamie, and Phyllis.)
Our neighbor Alan won the costume contest. The huge mutton chop sideburns he applied made it an easy choice.
But Rudi was a serious contender.
Boogie Oogie Ooging to the 8 tracks.
You all are outta site for sticking through this ultra long post. Your love has truly lifted us higher.
As promised, me making a fool of myself for your viewing pleasure. Although I apologize as it was a classic 80’s tune.
Jinkies! I have just one week left until finals, so I’d better get my groove on.
