Why not plan a retro night? This is an entertaining way to jazz up your next dinner party and wear your best vintage attire. Start by deciding on a theme. You can find décor from your local thrift stores for any time period that you may choose and you can even encourage your guest to come dressed the part on the invitation.
I have a great recipe (1950s style) that will be super easy to serve your guests!
