When it comes to New Year’s Eve, there are plenty of directions you can go in when it comes to theme and colors. However, one of our all-time favorite choices is a 20s-themed celebration. It’s totally glamorous, and everyone always appreciates the throwback look. Check out our tips to recreate the Jazz Age this New Year’s Eve.
1. Retro party favors and accessories for all. Our Chicago Swing for 50 kit makes this tip extraordinarily easy. Outfit the men in classic black and white fedoras, and hand out plumed tiaras to the ladies. Everyone will instantly feel like they’ve arrived at a speakeasy for the night. If you’re going for a more colorful theme, try our Swing Time Tiaras.
2. Serve up inspired drinks from the decade. Prohibition may have been the law of the land then, but there were plenty of iconic cocktails being mixed. Here are a few great ideas; the French 75, with champagne and gin, is especially fitting for New Year’s Eve.
3. Play some flapper-approved hits. You may want to intersperse some jazzy tunes with more current songs, or even try out The Great Gatsby soundtrack for a fun mix. Your guests will definitely appreciate this extra touch.
4. For decorations, stick with blacks and metallics. With a Roaring 20s look, you can go heavy on the glitter and sequins – perfect for New Year’s! Our Cascade 2018 Centerpiece is a great way to ring in the New Year while sticking with the retro theme.
