"candy bar" bars from the 1961 Pillsbury Bake-Off (winner was from Minnesota!), and seven layer bars! I contributed the jello; it was actually the first time I had attempted putting jello in molds! Lesson learned: layered jello desserts with the somewhat more fragile evaporated milk layer are a bad idea. Go with straight up jello, and make sure you fill it to the top.
Casey of Elegant Musings was difficult, and I wasn't all that successful. I used about 83 bobby pins to get everything to stay up, but it really reminded me that I should try doing crazy things with my hair more often.
It was such a glamorous evenings - gentlemen in suits, ladies in heels ---plus everyone drinking Old Fashioneds and Brandy Alexanders. Add the candy cigarettes, deviled eggs, spinach dip, and Swedish meatballs (my other contribution) --and you've got quite the party.
(Also--if you're in Boston and in need of 60s attire, the best spot is 40 South Street, with other thrift stores in Boston coming in second; you never know what you'll find!)
