Rat Pack FedoraRat Pack? What does that mean?

A few years ago, I chaired a non-profit fundraiser. I told them I wanted to do a “Rat Pack” theme. They all gave me blank stares. The theme means something different to everyone, but to me it meant – sophistication, glamour, elegance and retro-mod.

What the heck is “retro-mod”? LOL Okay, think Palm Springs or Las Vegas in the early 60’s. Modern furniture and decorating styles (not atomic like the 50’s). Think of lounges where people dressed up to go in the evening. Think Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and their stage acts. They wore ties and suits (though they came off during the acts a lot of the time).

Anyway, for this particular event, I enterpruted “Rat Pack” in my own way. I used a color scheme of chocolate, copper, gold, vanilla, and silver with lots of glass, crystals and led lights. I am in the midst of making an article for the website Decorating for Events, as well as a Squidoo lens about my experience and enterputation. I’ll post them here when I finish.

What does the Rat Pack conjure up for you?
