For dinner on Valentine's Day, Don and I had a little fun creating the romantic mood of a 1950's Italian restaurant. While Puccini played in the background we set the table with a checkered cloth and a stuck a candle in the Chianti bottle. We whipped up some spaghetti, salad and bread and pondered over which movie to watch. We agreed on the 1953's "Roman Holiday". Watching Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, whip around Rome on a Vespa gave me a new idea for celebrating the fifties. If only I knew someone who owned one!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
