We did a lot of research to produce an on-theme menu, outfits, decor, and bar offerings. Shockingly, Steve didn't already have a satin smoking jacket in his closet, so that was the first essential element to purchase. Once you've committed to a theme far enough to dress like Hugh Hefner, the rest comes naturally...
I was particularly proud of our transformed living room
We learned that people in the 60's ate truly bizarre fare - and fortunately it was mostly within our realm of culinary aptitude. The menu included fluffernutter sandwiches on Wonder Bread, Swedish meatballs in "sauce" (a 50-50 mix of grape jelly and Heinz chili sauce. Sounds terrifying, but tastes surprisingly good), pigs in a blanket, a cheese ball, a "hedgehog" (pineapple and cheese cubes stuck onto an orange with frilly toothpicks), Lipton Onion Soup Mix dip and ruffle chips, Chex mix, and salted nuts.
Happy Birthday to me!
