Hi Everyone! I hope this message finds you enjoying a wonderful Sunday. As you can see from today’s pics, I’m enjoying all of the tropical possibilities the weekend has to offer… And it’s kind of amazing how the tropical aesthetic will forever have ’80s connotations. Which is why in this edition of New Retro Weekender we’re featuring a few tropical temptations to jazz up your summer!
Retro Foodie: A Neon Noir Party
Greetings, ’80s-Lovers! Today we reveal our latest Retro Foodie adventure: a Neon Noir Party Menu that combines tropical style with easy entertaining. If you’re a fan of Neon Noir, you know the flip side of this crime-filled genre is the glamorous vibe that underscores each dangerous plotline. Because undercover detectives working the streets of 1980s Miami would never wear anything less than designer suits, right? This party channels a bit of neon, a dash of the tropics, and a sampling of food and drink. Enjoy!
’80s-Style Summer Finds

So today we pause for a moment to revel in the glory of 1980s summer style. And the fun way it’s revisited this season!
From stickers and album covers to the opening credits of Miami Vice, flamingos were everywhere in the ’80s. Which is why we couldn’t be more thrilled that once again we’re in the middle of a flamingo fad! And it’s fun to see how they’ve re-emerged. In fact, some flamingos have an “indie craft” look, while others deliberately pay homage to our favorite decade of yore. It’s the latter group that’s the focus of today’s post! It’s starting to get hot outside, so it’s appropriate that flamingo fever has hit the world of design…
