A Vintage Chic Holiday Party

An event with retro style to spare! Holiday party inspiration abounds in a feature all about a soiree pulled together by ad execs Tereasa Surratt and David Hernandez in their West Town home. From a request to the guests to wear a little something from the 50s or 60s to the typical for back then, but kitcshy fun for now food and drink selections, it’s got all the makings for a smashing success.

Just a few of the “vintage chic” details that went into this party plan:
• It was a great “excuse” to use the host’s collection of vintage tabletop wares, thrifted over the years
• Old school holiday tunes (Sinatra and Elvis) was the music of choice (photo 1)
• Vintage style holiday wrapping paper was used instead of a tablecloth
• Retro treats such as coffee with a mix-in bar and white chocolate fondue were served (photo 2)
• A flashdrive of music from the evening was a gift to the guests (photo 3)
