party inspiration: the dirty thirties

4.06.2009
Before I leave the subject of thirtieth birthday celebrations, I wanted to post an inspiration board for a party idea that requires a little more time and planning, but has the makings of a fantastic theme: the dirty thirties. The 1930's, while known primarily for the great depression, also had a more glamorous and sultry side including jazz, supper clubs, art deco, burlesque and cabaret. I could see hosting this party at a dimly lit wine bar or lounge and encouraging costumes with an abundance of velvet, silk or feathers...
