Setting the Tone For A Jazz Age Party:

A Jazz Age celebration can take place almost anywhere, including any of an array of Victorian establishments that are commonly used as celebration sites. Think mansions with dark paneled wood, historical house museums of the period, an original 1920's building in Art Deco style like a restaurant with elaborate chandeliers. You might even consider a hotel with a giant ballroom. 

Make sure that the venue you select has a vintage look, not just on the outside but also in the room where the party will be held, a cocktail bar, and a dance floor large enough for guests to really ham it up. If the room truly has an authentic feel, then few other decorations are needed, just add a few palm trees, low lighting and atmospheric smoke created with a fog machine and you've got the perfect 1920's speak easy. 

Set the stage for your gangster & moll bash by arriving in a rented vintage car from the 1920s or just park one outside your venue entrance. Hire Valets to park your guests cars and have them dressed in vintage clothing.

 

Invitations

  • Use an Art Deco invitation. 

  • Print the invitation as an illegal admission ticket to a speakeasy, complete with secret password.

  • Invites with images of long, slender cigarette holders and cocktail glasses.

  • Invites with a picture or collage of a 'flapper' headband with a real feather. 

  • Invites with a 1920's vintage car design.

Use black & white solid colored tableware. Place bottles of wine on each guest table, wrought iron accents such as (wine holders, candle holders, baskets).

Set out Chianti bottles. Insert candles into opening, light them and drip the wax down the sides. 

Think mood lighting - candles, candles, and more candles. 

* Create custom glassware by painting a simple pattern onto a plain wine glass, using egg whites and a small paintbrush – immediately sprinkle fine sugar over the egg white pattern.

* Fill drinking glasses – stem-less wine glasses work great – with decorative stones, then place a tea light inside. Or, turn traditional wine glasses upside down and use them as candleholders. Use different heights and group them together for an elegant look. There is no such thing as too many candles. Candlelight is very flattering on everyone.

* Fill martini, wine and brandy glasses with marbles and add a tea light.

* Fill beer pilsners with nuts, mints and other candy and use ribbon to tie a bow at the stem. Place glasses throughout the house so guests can munch while mingling.

* Use clear martini glasses or margarita glasses to serve desserts, mashed potatoes, sorbets or other side dishes.

* An inexpensive way to dress up your party is to pick up some specialty barware like unusual martini glasses, stem-less wine glasses, or light up barware.

Speak Easy Back Room

Remember those speak easies were created to provide alcoholic beverages & gambling. So set up your own little back room gambling casino. Adding a few casino party supplies & decorations would create the perfect speak easy back room decor.

Activities & Games

The Charleston was all the rage during the Roaring Twenties, so hire a DJ or Band and dance the night away! Other popular dances of the 20s included: Foxtrot, Turkey Trot, Peabody, Jive, Lindy Hop, Black Bottom. Hire a dance instructor to come in and teach a few steps to your guests.

A Little 1920s History

The end of WWI marked the beginning of the Roaring '20s. During this freewheeling decade, skirts got shorter, gangsters fought for control of alcohol sales, and the Charleston was all the rage.

The 1920s, a prosperous time period was known by a few names, such as the Roaring Twenties, the Jazz Age, the Age of Wonderful Nonsense, and the Age of Intolerance. 

In 1919, the 18th Amendment passed the act of Prohibition, which made consumption and even possession of alcohol illegal. The general intent of the this Amendment was to lower crime and improve the general status of life. But the opposite happened, crime increased as people rebelled against not being able to drink alcohol. Numerous illegal bars called speak easies were created to provide alcoholic beverages & gambling. This time period also included bathtub gin and other versions of homemade alcohol. Gangsters profited during this decade by smuggling alcohol and selling it to different illegal businesses. 

In the 1920s, a new woman was born, She smoked, drank, danced, asked guys out, bobbed her hair, wore baggy dresses which often exposed her arms as well as her legs from the knees down, she used make-up (which she might well apply in public), went to petting parties, was more assertive and voted. She took the same jobs as men and still fought for laws against inequality. Her antics were immortalized in the cartoons of John Held Jr., she was the heroine of the Jazz Age. With her short hair, short skirt, turned-down hose and powdered knees - she must have seemed to her mother (the gentle Gibson girl of an earlier generation) like a rebel. No longer confined to home and tradition, this young women was often thought of as a little fast and maybe even a little brazen. Mostly, she offended the older generation because she defied conventions of acceptable feminine behavior. She was giddy and took risks. She was a flapper.

THE FLAPPER
by Dorothy Parker 


The Playful flapper here we see,
The fairest of the fair.
She's not what Grandma used to be, --
You might say, au contraire.
Her girlish ways may make a stir,
Her manners cause a scene,
But there is no more harm in her
Than in a submarine.

She nightly knocks for many a goal
The usual dancing men.
Her speed is great, but her control
Is something else again.
All spotlights focus on her pranks.
All tongues her prowess herald.
For which she well may render thanks
To God and Scott Fitzgerald.

Her golden rule is plain enough -
Just get them young and treat them
rough
