Happy Late Easter!

Laaaaaaate, Late Easter! Haha Looks like we have a new "Casablanca Holiday" Dear Readers!
(Patricia, Jordan, Cindy, Jeremiah, Kelcie & Margaret!)
Friends Jordan and Margaret hosted their very first "Casablanca Party" that we have now dubbed "Late Easter". I made a coke ham, and everyone brought a dish for dinner.
Since it was a small dinner party we were able to use the Franciscan "American Ivy" dishes, (my favorite!) Very festive and spring-y, and we drank out of the gold leaf Libbey "Draper" glasses (same as they have on Mad Men.) We even used the good flatware! We enjoyed a leisurely dinner and listened to Big Band records...
After Dinner, Margaret led us in an Easter basket swap (think Chinese Christmas, but with Easter baskets) while Patricia hid eggs out in the yard and Drive-In.
Some guests dashed, while others causally gathered, the brightly colored eggs. But a delightful time was had by all!
 The latter part of the evening was spent lounging in the Coral room, listening to records and planning for the upcoming 1960 Miss Casablanca Contest on the 17th.

All in all a relaxing and fun dinner party hosted by two very lovely ladies!

Looks like fun to me! I would have been in that first group I'm afraid scrambling after those chocolate eggs!!
Always like your 'step back in time' posts Mick!

Fun!! I may have thrown a few elbows to get to those eggs though. Guess I'll never grow up :0)
