Talk like a flapper!
Sometimes novels set in the 1920s can be great resources for anyone planning a 1920s wedding or party. Earlier this year I blogged about two YA novels about the 1920s that had a lot of great, authentic-feeling settings and clothing details. Recently I read the sequel to one of those novels (review coming soon).
At the end of the novel, I noticed that the series has its own website, TheFlappersBooks.com. I headed over to check it out, and was delighted by one of the features on the site: a glossary of 1920s slang. Anyone planning a 1920s party or wedding is sure to find this useful. You could use some of the slang to plan the text for invitations, or you could include a card with your own version of the glossary in the invitation, and encourage everyone to "talk like a flapper" at the wedding or party!
What were you surprised to see on this list? I had no idea that the term "putting on the Ritz" and words like "nifty," "ducky," and "swell" originated in the 1920s. What were you surprised about?
