Imagine transporting your guests back in time to an era of fun, fashion and frolics. We can’t imagine a better way to celebrate your special occasion than with a 1920s themed party.
When we think about the ‘Roaring Twenties’, it conjures up visions of smoke-filled speak-easys, prohibitions, mystery and glamour. There are so many fantastic, inspirational ideas for your themed party to choose from, but in our opinion striking colours such as black, gold and beige truly capture the feel of the 1920s.
Plan your Party
Let your guests know what to expect from your 1920s party by selecting the right invitations to tell the story. We have a range of 1920s styled party invitations in our Themed category. Whether you choose a stylish flapper girl, jazzy Art Deco or gangsters and molls, your guests will know to dress up from the era and expect a roaring good time!
Decorating the Venue
Ostrich feathers add elegance and style to any venue and can optimise the feeling of grandeur. Purchase an array of colours in various different sizes from www.finepartysupplies.co.uk. They can be arranged to make a truly striking piece as demonstrated below.
An inexpensive way to decorate your 1920s venue is to place jars of black and white humbugs and long string pearls around your centrepieces, which can also double as party favours.
