If you're planning a 1920's theme party why not go all the way and make it a Speakeasy party?
Speakeasies, though illegal, were popular drinking establishments during the Prohibition era in the United States during the twenties and early thirties making this t the perfect theme for a roaring 20's Great Gatsby style cocktail party. You can learn more about Speakeasies HERE.
You can decorate for the event with old-fashioned decor and have all the guys and dolls dress the part.
There are Speakeasy invites for many different special occasions, like milestone birthdays, Bachelorette parties, and even New Year's Eve. We've selected four of our favorite designs but there's lots more where these came from. You can see them all and some other fun Speakeasy party supplies by visiting Speakeasy Party at Zazzle.

These retro birthday postcards are a GREAT idea to keep in the house.
They're cute, affordable to buy, (and to send) and they would be super appreciated as an in-hand birthday greeting for anyone.
The design says, My best wishes for your birthday, in fun vintage style fonts. There's an illustration of a straight pin in one corner that makes it look like it's being pinned to a cork board. The design looks aged and worn giving it a delightful antique retro look.
About these postcards:
Sometimes the old ways are just better.
Text messages and social media posts are nice but if you really want to create an impact, and show you care, a postcard makes a terrific impression. And it's something they can keep and treasure always.
There's less waste too. No need for envelopes that just get tossed into the landfill.
Grab a bunch of these to keep on hand so you'll be ready for everyone's birthday this year.
