Connect with H&H

Super-Stylish Soiree

Channel an old-school vibe at your holiday or New Years party with Mad Men cocktails and mod design elements.

Nab a vintage Polaroid and film via Craigslist or eBay — or pick up Polaroid's new digital PoGo version — and snap shots of your friends. Keep up the retro vibe by playing music on vinyl, too. Serve up fries wrapped in parchment paper (bake frozen fries and toss in herbs and black pepper), stack doughnuts high on a cake stand and pass out some hip, patterned napkins for easy grazing.

Get a party-music playlist. Plus, see more party-perfect rooms in our photo gallery and get tips, recipes and drink ideas in our party guide.
