This weekend, thanks to an NPR story, I discovered the Museum of the American Cocktail. I don't drink cocktails, but I still enjoyed browsing the museum's site, and seeing some of the paraphernalia used in making a cocktail party a success. The picture below took me by surprise since the pink elephant glasses were ones that I had seen in my home when I was young!
To set the mood at your party, borrow songstress Jo Stafford's album, Cocktail Hour [CD FEMALE VOCALIST STA], and look for Martha Stewart's party guide, Entertaining [642 STE] for menus and decorating ideas.
The library will be closed New Year's eve and New Year's day. We will open again on Friday at 9:00 AM. Have a safe holiday! Peace to all.
