Mad Men finally returns to the airwaves tonight after a long hiatus. Like any decent fan, we're throwing a viewing party for the special two hour season premiere. No Mad Men party would be complete, however, without the perfect 1960s style decor.

To make hosting your Mad Men fête a bit easier, we've picked out the 10 most necessary items for a perfectly retro party, from ball pearl earrings in the style of Betty Draper to some of the exact whisky Don drinks on the show. (It's not really a Mad Men party without the drinks!)

Make sure to tune in to the premiere tonight and check back tomorrow morning for our fashion recap of the show!

Get in the spirit with Don Draper's favorite whiskey, Canadian Club.

Sure Mondrain painted in the 1920s and 1930s, but he had a fashionable resurgence in the 1960s with Yves Saint Laurent's 1965 "Mondrian Dress." These tumblers from the MoMA Design Store combine the chicness of Mondrian with the alcoholism of Mad Men.

Get in a vinatge mood with this gold brocade Prada dress from Decadestwo.1.

It's all about the ball stud earrings on Mad Men, and these giant pearls from Juliet and Company will do just the trick without breaking the bank.

While all the womenswear from the Banana Republic and Mad Men collaboration has already sold out online, the gents can still purchase great items like this aqua polo shirt.

A stunning red swing dress from Asos evokes the early sixties, and is perfect for doing the twist in.

These cat eye sunglasses from Prism are just retro enough for Mad Men parties and still wearable for everyday.

Capture the moment as they would have done in the 1960s - on a classic Polaroid camera.

You'll need some light reading for those commercial breaks, and what could be better than an official illustrated guide to Mad Men?

Mad Men fans have kept busy since last season by starting a new meme, Draping, which consists of taking your photo in the pose of Don Draper in Mad Men's title card. Once you've gotten in on the Draping you can send your photo to draping.tumblr.com and get your 15 minutes of internet fame.
