Mid Century Modern Themed Cocktail Party

The Vintage Dish was so excited to partner with Chef Bob Aungst and Grander Rum to throw a retro, MCM cocktail party! The party package was a silent auction item at Make-Wish-Foundation's 2018 Wish Markers Ball. Every detail was handcrafted to perfectly represent the 1960s, including a menu straight from Betty Draper's book of entertaining!

Mid Century Modern Cocktail Party

Cocktails were created by Grander Rum, featuring their premium versions of rum, which is not your ordinary rum, by the way! A unique spirit, designed to be more like a bourbon or whiskey and nothing like a fruity coconut drink on the beach.
