Sounds pre-groovy! which is I think what you want

If you have dishes/tablecloths/etc, place settings. (remember straw flowers?) anything can be retro. Just serving something in a martini glass makes it atomic age.

Was going to mention that the Mole Christmas feast that had the baked pineapple also had sopapilas to go with the chicken mole, I think any sort of bread would go nicely with the chili and shaped breads in particular are currently classified as retro and with the big wooden salad bowls and tiki forks...
edit: Think clover rolls, crescent rolls, breadsticks with seeds on them...

As are any hot appetizers, that Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry (vegan!) is amazing to make something that takes nothing to do but set the tone with a tasty snack.

Thanks IceBlossom...so cool and groovy! So, OK, here's what I came up with. The entire menu is vegan.

Iced Tea, Tab (if they still make it) and beer to drink
Artichoke spinach dip, with Ruffles, (Rrrrruffles have rrrrridges,) Pringles (served in the can, of course,) and fritos (via the "Frito Bandito")
Stuffed cherry tomatoes
Swedish Meatballs with noodles
Cucumbers in "sour cream" with dill
Carrot Salad (maybe)
Coleslaw
Pineapple Upside-down Cake, (In the oven as we type)

60s playlist goin' strong

Mole is still one of our favorites.

I have a couple of pieces of Corning Ware to serve things in and a pretty, covered cake stand for the cake. I didn't put Maraschino cherries on the cake. I kind of regret that, but I didn't have any in the fridge and I'm not going to town, so that's that. It will still look and taste good.

So, I just looked up Tab, and alas, they stopped selling it in Dec. 2020. Maybe RC Cola???

Poppin' Fresh Crescent Rolls might be a fun, added touch.
