Party: Roaring 20s Theme Party
One of my favorite friend's 25th birthday is this weekend! We are going to Tavern Law which is a new speakeasy type bar in downtown Seattle. This got me thinking of throwing a 20s theme party. The 20s were full of gangsters and flappers. Women were rebelling against traditional attire (corsets) and behavior, so they wore their hair short, smoked, drank and wore shapeless shift dresses. During prohibition the speakeasy was the go to place to have any sort of alcohol and fun. Here are some inspirations I have found.
