With the 1920's back in fashion, thanks to the Great Gatsby I would throw a great party with all the glitz and glamour of this wonderful era. Although alcohol was prohibited during this time, my party would have to be an exception. My drinks bar would be stocked with wide brimmed champagne glasses so that no one would go without a cocktail or two! Buffet tables laden with appetizers to keep my guests satisfied before eating in style from the menu above. Entertainment from the Jazz Band would get guests in the mood for some dances and we would even do the Charleston!
