Mad Men cocktail party ideas | Cocktail by  Please & Thank You | Photo by Joielala

You guys all tuned into the season premiere of Mad Men on Sunday, yes? What a first episode that was! You can bet we’ll be glued to our televisions every Sunday night until the series ends, drooling over Megan’s wardrobe and Don Draper’s… well, Don Draper’s everything (don’t tell our hubbies!). Last week we shared a yummy Mai Tai recipe from Joielala, The Hostess Haven, and Please & Thank You to sip while watching. And today that same trio is back with a recipe for Don Draper’s drink of choice: the Old Fashioned. Here it is…

Kelly Wearstler is a serious force of nature. Her interior design? Legendary. Her clothing and accessories collection? Gorg. And now we hear that Miss Wearstler is designing wedding invitations with Paperless Post?! Ah-mazing. (And eco-friendly too!)

Here’s what Kelly has to say about the line: I have always been inspired by the juxtaposition of feminine and masculine elements. When creating my new collection it was important for me to create wedding designs that would speak to elevated and chic male clientele—as well as female. I wanted to capture the sexy tension that comes from mixing raw elements with more refined details. This collection has a distinctive yet versatile voice that evokes a handsome luxury and soulful spirit, which can be tailored to fit any couple.

There’s a reason beach weddings are so popular, yes? The view is uber romantic, the misty lighting is perfect for photos, and you can’t help but feel calm and relaxed when you have sand beneath your toes. The team at Love, Inc. Weddings (made up of Anna Delores Photography, Stella Bloom Designs, and A Charming Occasion) hails from Ventura County, CA, so they know all about that beachy goodness that you see here.

Stella Bloom Designs says, We wanted to keep everything neutral except the flowers. Bougainvillea is an all-time favorite that is blooming in vibrant magentas all over Ventura County. We wanted to deviate a bit from the cream, peach, and blush color palette that we’ve been seeing so often, but still incorporate the color inspiration that modern brides love so much. To update the look, we opted for shades of bright pink, magenta, fuchsia, and violet rather than softer, pastel shades.
