Mad Men Week

I am so excited about this week's posts! Saturday night I will be celebrating one of my best friend's birthday. Lauren is turning 21 and in honor of her obsession with the show Mad Men, her husband is throwing her a themed party! While it was raining this weekend, I tried to catch up on as many episodes from the first season as possible. The late 1950's were such a fascinating time in our country's history and, as an advertising major, I appreciate the revolution that took place on Madison Avenue.

All week I will be sharing inspiration for the party and attire. To start off, I thought I would share some ideas for escort cards. Lauren mentioned wanting the Mad Men font for guests names. How cool would that look on cards in addition to the NYC skyline?

With this as my inspiration, I'm hoping to tackle the feat. I'll let you know how it turns out!

Update: I used this image for the skyline and typed everyone's name in a font similar to the show's (I thought Tahoma Bold was the closest thing). Next step is mounting the place cards onto card stock for a sturdier finish.
