Take a Peek at a Roaring 2O's Party

 My very creative friend Chris planned a fun party for her fathers birthday. She chose a Roaring 20's theme, booked a casino, and did an amazing job with period decorations. The guests arrived in terrific costumes, ready to roar!
Chris created dramatic decor areas


Look how great these ladies look in their 20's finery!                                                                                
Together with her family, Chris put together a menu and prepared dishes for a casual, easy to nosh on, buffet.

 My part was easy, I made the Tortellini Salad. Handmade sausage wrapped in pastry, Bruschetta Pomodorro, Chicken Satay and Grilled Sausage Skewers with peppers and onions.

Adding some space onto your home to keep guests warm and cozy is easy. A party rental company can turn your backyard into another room.

Chris turned her parents parlor into a classy casino.

The buffet was set in the kitchen for simple service.
Guests entered from the alley, into a fun "speakeasy" secret knock...and all!

Hi Renee. I love the party idea. And love all the photos on your blog!!! Many make me want to be there. I'm inspired to work on my photography. And thanks for your comments on my blog too. I do plan to enter Fruit Gems in Confections this year. I wasn't sure if they fit into a catagory but looked it up and "Other" works for me. You do a lot of cool stuff here and I like the feel of your event pics.

This makes me happy. The image of the uncut sausage-in-pastry makes me hungry, but the photos of the flapper-crew ready to party, and of the quiet, carefully prepared rooms, ready for people to stir in the energy, noise, and joy, those make me deeply happy.
