1920s themes gaining popularity

Last week I spotted a billboard for a 1920s-themed New Year's Eve party in Denver, the White Rose Gala.  I have no doubt that there are more like this one in other cities.  The 1920s theme seems to be gaining popularity, and I am seeing more and more 1920s- and Gatsby-themed events.

Is that supposed to look 1920s?

The other day I posted that Snooki was getting married in a 1920s-themed wedding.  The post-wedding reports sound like just the reception was 20s-inspired, though.  She wore a more traditional wedding dress for the ceremony, and a Gatsby-themed dress for the reception.

I was disappointed when I finally found pictures of the supposedly Gatsby-themed dress, though...

Snooki is getting married 1920s-style

I saw a headline today that Snooki is getting married in a 1920s-themed wedding -- today.  I'm eagerly awaiting the pictures, even though I am a little skeptical as to how true to the 1920s a celebrity wedding would be.  The article says she was getting her hair done 1920s-style -- with those long locks, I wonder what that will look like!

One thing is for sure, though, this will make the idea of a 1920s-themed wedding a whole lot more popular.  Good thing I've been working on my ebook this month!

Coming soon...

I've long thought of writing a companion ebook to this site, either How to Plan a 1920s-Themed Wedding or How to Plan a 1920s-Themed Party (or a little of both).  I've written a lot about these topics over the years, but the information would need to be compiled, expanded on, and updated, so it's a sizable time investment, so my idea has stayed on the back burner for years.

A 1920s costume lunch


A guy friend asked if I wanted to come to a 1920s-themed lunch the retirement center he works for was putting on, and of course I didn't say no.  I've been accumulating quite the 1920s wardrobe, as you can see.  This is just one dress I have of several, and I also have a couple of hats, several wraps, and several skirt and top combos that I can mix and match with.  I have a new pair of shoes coming in the mail soon, too, and a couple of authentic 1920s purses that I'm quite proud of.
