Happy new year! To start 2014, we had to organize Eric’s 28th Birthday Party, this time it was difficuilt to get ideas, since we were on holidays until one week before, and he needed a theme of a grown up man, so no more disney movies themes =).
The idea of making a 1920’s Speakeasy Birthday Party came when he decided to buy a lot of cigars in Mexico. He said he would love to smoke them with his friends, so he bought a wide variety of them in different sizes a flavours. This is when I thought we could do something related to the 1920’s mafia and Speakeasy times, when the cigars and alcohol where not allowed.
The first thing I did, of course was to on the web and on Pinterest and start looking for ideas of similar parties and decoration, and I made an inspirational board with the pictures I found:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
Later we just told all the guests to come dressed like in the 1920’s, we played some 1920’s music and we gave some special alcohol and cigars. It was a pretty easy party and quite fun.
