Picking Period-Appropriate Decor for the March 25th Mad Men Premiere

After an 18-month break, one of my favorite TV shows returns! Luckily I haven't had to wait 18 months. cubes and I have only been waiting since August after enjoying a Mad Men marathon.

The Finds (top clockwise):Relish Tray, $6, The Porcelain Owl; Casserole and Chafing Dish Set, $74, ReFindery; Relish Tray, $16, Mrs. Rekamepip; Footed Candy Dish, $6, Old Time 4 You.

I'm sure devoted fans across the U.S. and around the world will be throwing premier parties. While Mad Men is set in the 1960s, I can't imagine that all households threw out their 1950s housewares. As I love the look of 1950s Fire King that's how I'll be serving up my canapes and casserole.

What are you doing to celebrate the return of Mad Men?

Bon Apetit!
