How I love Hitchcock! Especially this time of year, it is easy to fall for all of the macabre glamour. A Hitchcock-themed party would be just like a Mad Men party except, you know, with more murder. So, whether hosting a couple shower or the rehearsal dinner this is a fantastic theme for both ladies and gentlemen. For a large party, decorate each table with items from one movie. For example, a telephone and house key for “Dial M for Murder,” a stack of books tied together with thick twine for “Rope,” and an airplane and Mt. Rushmore postcards for “North by Northwest.” Ladies can get all dressed up in their sweetest Grace Kelly pencil skirts and Tippi Hedren updo’s. The guys can do their best Cary Grant impersonations in charcoal grey suits (but no one compares…sigh). Serve simple cocktails in your best old-fashioned glasses and, whatever you do, stay away from any mysterious birds.
