It’s mod, mod world {party}! – Party at my swingin’ 1960s pad

After months of looking at houses in the current, fairly impossible, Seattle housing market, we decided to put away our dreams of owning for a bit and we signed the lease on a lovely, 1928 house. My guy and I were quite excited to move in the new house as it has more space for all my vintage knick-knacks (including a space for my favorite pink chairs which he just doesn’t appreciate like I do… but we’ll get to that in another blog. haha), a yard for us to grow veggies and host parties and a garage where he can work on his beloved car. It had everything we needed… all wrapped up with vintage charm! Unfortunately, this meant that I had to leave my perfectly mid-century, 1962 apartment. Instead of spending my last couple months in the apartment totally bummed, I decided to handle the situation in typical CoriLu fashion… and plan a 1960s cocktail party!

The party not only served as a moving announcement to our beatnik friends, but also as a mod celebration of my years in the apartment… and now I’d like to share our party success with you!

My friends are the best and went over the top just as I had hoped… and I finally got to wear my patriotic, flower mini dress and gogo boots that I bought from the original owner while garage sale-ing a couple of years ago!

We, of course, had to have classic martinis and other 1960s cocktails.

Now, if you ask me, that’s the way to celebrate a wonderful 1960s apartment!
