Happy July! Summer is here and life could not be better. Sunshine, dresses, and…. Annette Funicello.
Last week I hosted a vintage summer party for my beautiful friends and it was inspired by all things summer. To prepare for the party I researched mid-century foods and recipes. Jell-o became a central part of the party as it is a necessity for any vintage party. The dishes were fun to make and I loved putting together the playlist.
Some of the tunes came from Beach Party. This album is the perfect
Cherry Coke Jell-o
Groovy Jell- Salad
Pigs in a Blanket (vegetarian)
Green Olives (a must for any mid-century shin dig)
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Cheese Plate (Swiss, Cheddar, Pepperjack)
Finger Foods: Cashews, Chips, Chocolate Covered Raisins
Gin & Tonics
*If you want any of the recipes message me and I would be happy to pass them along. Most I just found on google searches.
