Episode 203 - 50's Redux
Decade Dining!
Takes you back...
Scratching your head for a dinner theme? How about taking a cue from your favourite decade. In this case we chose the 50's, an optimistic era known for its bright colours, upbeat mood and the fact that the table and settings can either be dragged out of the basement or purchased inexpensively.

A great way to add even more colour to a bright arborite table and chairs is to use vibrant china and glassware. Cutlery should be simple, every day stainless can work well. Bold place mats, napkins and accessories are other ways to add punch to your theme.

Theming an event or dinner to a decade can often inspire what you plan to serve. This table makes me think of meat loaf and macaroni and cheese. Lucy, we have company!
