Love the show? Live for a night in the world of Mad Men by hosting your own 60's / Mad Men themed party.

Send the invites out with a mandatory sixties dress code, include images of the show's characters and tips on how to dress like Don Drapper or Joan Harris.

Pillbox and pork pie hats, full skirts, gloves, shift and a-line dresses, grey suits, skinny ties, black rimmed glasses, trench coats and Argyle cardigans are costume suggestions.

Screen looped episodes for inspiration and to create the Mad Men setting from DVDs, iTunes, Foxtel, SBS or download free episodes here.

Continue the 60's theme with martinis, punch and whiskey with fondoe, mini frankfurts, cheese and gherkins on toothpicks.

You can pay homage to Sterling Cooper Drapper Price's clients by drinking Heineken Beer, smoke Lucky Strikes (pretend only) or arrive on a Honda scooter.

Who will have more fun Betty Draper, Joan Harris or Peggy Olson? And who will be the latest conquest for Don Draper and Roger Sterling?

Turn up the sixties tunes such as the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones and dance with sixties moves 'the Twist' and 'the Swimmer'.

Make sure to join the conga line and see how low you can go under the limbo pole.
