While I have lots of party idea up my sleeve, I'm looking at this project as not just a birthday party but history lesson and a thorough examination of a decade in American History. I have already loaded up my Netflix que with twenties era documentaries, and movies based on the era. My bookshelf is also being stocked with books on the 1920's and I'm sure my iTunes library is not far from being twenty-ized. So while the end goal will be a birthday party, I'm looking at this party planning experience as a history lesson in the making and a celebration of a decade, not just a celebration of myself.
I have been slowly collecting images to help inspire my decor and outfit.

Marion Davies' parties at the her Annenberg Beach House (which I visited this summer) will serve as inspiration to me. And I can't throw a twenties lawn party without some Great Gatsby inspiration.
I will be sharing my party planning with you, but if anyone has any helpful links for me I'd love to see some other twenties themed party ideas!
