Coming up with a 70's themed party favor wasn't easy. I wanted to avoid the trappings of a chintzy favor like the mirror ball key chains and smiley face doodads that you usually get at a 70's theme party. Emily came up with the idea of giving our guests trail mix so that when they "hit the trail" at the end of the night they would have something to munch on. Plus, trail mix seemed like the perfect 70's snack. I came up with the idea of using awesome yellow and orange vintage tupperware containers to serve the trail mix in. The trail mix was a huge hit and our guests loved the vintage tupperware. Part of the magic is using equal parts of all of the components. This way each bite has a bit of everything. We ended up calling this treat, "Even Steven Trail Mix".
