A Merry, Mid-Century Christmas

Alfred Hitchcock at the dessert table.

I have been filled with holiday cheer over the last few weeks preparing for Mark and Donnie's party.  (Side note:  Don (Donnie) Callahan, if you didn't know, is a phenomenal real estate agent in Savannah with a slew of beautiful properties listed on his site.) It has been an honor and pleasure to work with these guys, and in such an amazing pad!  You MUST go visit their home's listing here.  You'll find lots of fantastic information and pictures of the house sans-festive decor.  The Jack Stacy home, which feels as though it's been plucked from Beverly Hills, is a wonderful example of style and groove circa 1958.

I mean, HELLO!  Do you see this?

We decked their wood paneled halls with flashy flowers, retro trimmings, famous cameos, and homespun touches of yarn and felt.  And of course there were a few glimmering lights. 

So, the party was great, wasn't it?  Wait, you couldn't make it?  Aww, that's okay.  Don't beat yourself up!  Take a video tour and pilfer through my lengthy catalog of snapshots.

Actually, her candy striped dress is meant to mimic the chimney.  
The Where's Waldo similarity was a complete accident.

Donnie's old train! Mark and I found this in the attic while looking for lights.
We couldn't resist setting it up.  Even came with coal for the naughty party goer.
