The Retro Political Period - Tablescape

When speaking of an American pastime or specific events that occurred within it, the question that always seems relevant is "Who was president during that time period?”. Due to the current zealous presidential campaign that our country is embarking upon, reverting to the basics and the retro history of presidential elections seemed fitting for this challenge. We present our table design as the Retro Political Period. With faded hues of our American Flag, nostalgic retro cigarette candies, ballot cards as menu pieces and the signature political pins, we wanted to take you to the retro times of our past candidates’ campaigning ventures. Below are pictures of the tablescape designed to do just that.
