All that Glitters

The glamorous Art Deco style flourished in the 1920s, and it's back for the 2020s. This glittering ballroom is floor to ceiling glamour. Crystal strings drape from the ceiling, and crystal balls adorn each gold lame clothed table. Gold chairs and place settings further bring in the Hollywood and Art Deco razzle-dazzle.

Swing into the 20s

Only live music will do for a 1920s themed event, as it wasn't in fashion to play records for a gathering. While your band is dressed to the nines in their finery, be sure to add the Charleston and Jazz music to their play list.

Place Your Bets
