Vintage Game Night!

Last Friday evening Bee hosted some great friends for a vintage style fall game night in her home. Inspired by the whimsy and cozy feel of the invitation above (really, it's a scarf wearing quail for goodness sake!) we went with a 1950's hunting lodge look for the decor and refreshments.

The color scheme included hunter greeen, burlap, gold, and cozy plaid mixed with  woodland animals (deer, wintry birds, etc). The menu was a modern twist on classic mid-century comfort foods ( ruffled potato chips with homemade french onion dip, mini meatloaves, mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts) and an autumnal Sailor Jerry rum punch. 

Bee hit the jackpot at Target when she stumbled upon some fabulous Patch NYC pieces on clearance. 3 items, each under $12 and a few favorite holiday scented candles, Sparkling Angel.

 With added oversized floor and throw pillows and a wooly granny blanket that were found tucked away in storage, the space was transformed.

 The goal was to play a few different games, but we had so much fun playing Taboo that we never made it to the others. It was a fantastic evening with the best of friends. We hope this inspires you to plan a playful party just for the fun of it!

Cheers and happy partying,

Sailor Jerry + Fresh Apple Cider = Surprisingly easy and delicious

Gold's vintage deer worked so perfectly on Bee's snack table

Mini meatloafs, playfully dubbed "Meat Muffins", were the hit and euphamism of the night
(note this awesome patterned burlap and our new stag pedestal dish)

Mae, the party animal, totally passed out on the plaid floor pillows
