Mad Men-Inspired Party Menu

Mad Men Inspired Party Menu

Jordan from Oh Happy Day was throwing a mod, Mad Men-inspired party so I was immediately in to whip up a 60’s menu. I’ve been a fan of the show since before it even premiered- 60’s clothes plus advertising? Was this show created just to appeal to me?

This is not my first Mad Men inspired menu- I threw a dinner party for the a season premiere of the show a few years ago. A little research will reveal that the trendiest, fanciest foods from the ’60s seem pretty disgusting to us now. Gelatin mold with hard-boiled eggs, vienna sausages, and green olives, anyone? So I took inspiration from iconic dishes of the era, and gave them a more modern twist. I hope Joan would approve.
