Party Time: Roaring Twenties Party - Part 3

Today I wanted to share the final set of details and photos from our client's roaring twenties themed birthday party that was designed and coordinated by our team at Distinctive Occasions.

In addition to the fabulous decor and thematic elements detailed in previous posts, we added some fun, interactive elements incorporating actors and dancers.

Upon arrival, guests were required to give a password that was included with their invitation to a costumed actor through an opening in a real speakeasy door that was built to look like it was part of the wall.

Guests were then "interrogated" by an actress gathering "dirt" on the birthday girl. Their interviews were videotaped and played back live on the TV later in the evening.

During cocktail hour, a costumed cigarette girl floated among the guests passing out these red glitter chocolate bonbons and fake cigarette holders. These bonbons are so yummy and sparkly!

During the party, there were two mini "shows", where professional dancers in flapper costumes danced the Charleston and a medley from the musical "Chicago". They also danced with the guests and taught them some dance moves from the period.

And what Roaring Twenties theme party would be complete without a police raid? Towards the end of the party, we had costumed actors acting as policeman try to break up the party. We even rented a "bubble light" that flashed when they arrived.

It's always great when we have the opportunity to carry a theme through every aspect of the party. From the invitations to the decor, to the interactive elements, the music and the thematic elements, this party was infused with 1920's style. I think this is a party our special birthday girl will remember for a long time to come!
