My friend recently turned 23 and decided to throw a 1920's themed bash which was wildly magical, like transporting back in time~
To prep for the dinner I did my best to be as authentic as possible on my terms~
I have to say, I'm super proud of my makeup~ Though it's different from my usual look, I tried to keep it as realistically 1920's as I dared to with the dark rounded eyes, elongated eyebrows, pouted lip and blush focused on the apples of the cheek~
Hehe;; Though I couldn't resist adding on my false lashes!
My dress I purchased for the dinner is a tea dress from 1923 which I added a blue sash to dress it down and broach to modernize it a smidge~
Detail of the pretty lace on the dress^^
Thought I didn't take a picture, I finger waved my hair and put my hair in a pretty twist that seemed to fit the era.
As you can see, the view is breathtaking!
As the sun slowly set over the looming hills, my friend's father came out and played banjo while the guests started to drive down the driveway and trickle in and we were introducing ourselves.
The mixture of the solo banjo playing over the soft tunes coming from within and the warmth of cooking food radiating from inside and the cooling tiles where we mingled was a surprisingly comfortable mix.
The table was artfully arranged with name plates and alcohol tickets for us to use at the bar they have in the basement.
As we chatted as friends do, we dined on different Louisiana styled plates and finished up with cake and freshly powdered beignets.
Our alcohol menu we could prick our poison from~ assured they were all drinks that were historically accurate.
Besides the bar in the lower rooms there was a billiards room that was open for use and a space designated for craps and roulette that we were invited to take part in.

I had a swinging good time meeting old friends and making new acquaintances, it was a lovely party full of class and fun!
Happy Birthday my dear Meggy!
Also, thank you for inviting me and for your family's generosity and letting us into their house and the amazing time!

[[Aaaand, happy news, I am getting a new DSLR with HD filming, so I will make my first video when it comes in on my 1920's makeup I wore for the party thought I would let you know a bit before hand but I'm really excited!]
