Retro Birthday Party – 60’s and 70’s!

Event Description: LadyFingers catered a 60’s and 70’s themed retro birthday party featuring modern food inspired by the fun food from that era. From mini grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup shots inspired by Andy Warhol’s famous soup can, to our popular Hot Dip Station inspired by 70’s fondue, LadyFingers brought back yester-year with up-to-date interpretations. The tie-dyed and bell bottom-clad guests at this one-of-a-kind retro birthday party were grooving in the Community Center in the Rosslyn Farms suburb of Pittsburgh.

“Amazing job on our retro birthday party! Every day I get more positive comments on the creativity and originality of the food, as well as the remarkable presentation! The throw-back signs on each food station with the retro photos were genius! We have great photos of all of your work and we’ll be sending them to you! I don’t know how we’ll ever top this party!” – Andrea H. (a catering reference is available from this Pittsburgh client)
