Have a Vintage Drinks Party with yay retro!



yay retro! is an online vintage shop which is full of genuine vintage wares for your home. If you've been thinking of holding a vintage drinks party, then we have everything you'll need to get your party started!  From vintage 'cocktail party' invitations to decanters and glasses from the 1950s, 60s & 70s.



Choose a vintage chopping board like this kitsch house shaped tiled board, which comes with a bottle opener and knife ready to slice your cherries and chop your lemons, then pair this up with a set of vintage glasses. We have frosted & striped ones from the 50s, and abstract patterns from the 60s for you in stock right now.



You might be wondering what kinds of drinks were in vogue back in the day that you could serve at your party....

How about a Whisky Manhattan:
Ice
2 parts whiskey
1 part sweet vermouth
1 to 2 dashes bitters, such as Angostura
Orange peel
Maraschino Cherries
Serve in a short glass

Or a classic Martini Cocktail:
1 part vermouth
5 part Gin
Ice (for mixing)
Garnish with a green olive or lemon rind
Serve in a Cocktail or champagne glass



Vintage 50s & 60s shot glasses are ideal for today's love of...well....shots!  So if you're planning on playing some party games and want some fun why not invest in a set of genuine vintage glasses to set you all off in the party mood? We even have fantastic vintage coasters to buy! Use the links below to find what you need, but be quick as you'll see they sell out fast:
