Christmas Party Planning, 1970s Style!

This lovely handwritten document from 1970 shows a mix of the traditional and the modern (for the time). While the cake and pudding recipes are similar to what we might make today, the food suggested for the party spread is very much of its time. Note the numerous items on cocktail sticks and the instruction to provide cigarettes and cigars as well as drinks for the party.

This interesting document is from the records of Arnprior Women’s Rural Institute.
