Mid Century Cocktail Party

Whether you are a fan of Mad Men or just a fan of Mid Century vintage goods, a fun way to party mid century style is to have a mid century cocktail party.

Mix up a pitcher of martini's or Manhattan's and serve up some smiles!

Scandinavian martini pitchers in mid century tend to be sleek handle-less columns.

Hazel Atlas made great pitchers with decals in bright primary colours in the 50s and while they were intended for juice or other non-alcoholic beverages, they can be used for fruity cocktails such as mai tai's or pina colada's
