Setting the Scene

The time period was set during the Prohibition Era, where Speakeasies were hidden in all sorts of establishments. For our party, it was concealed in “Joey’s Italian Restaurant” via the side entrance. To enter, a password had to be given to the doorman, which our guests received in their invitation. After entering through a dark hallway, they were welcomed into the party.

The Food

We enjoyed some popular food items from the roaring 20’s like deviled eggs and cucumber sandwiches. Of course we had plenty of ‘booze’ in the form of several different batches of homemade rootbeer my husband had been concocting for the last few weeks.

The Decorations

We spent two months perusing estate sales and the internet for ideas and decorations for our party. We really wanted to create the right mood so our guests felt they were apart of the 20’s time period.
