Farewell to my Roaring 20’s

We had a Great Gatsby-inspired celebration to say farewell to my “Roaring 20’s” over the weekend.

tableIn addition to dressing up, we also had a prohibition-themed cocktail bar.

Most of the pictures from the festivities are courtesy of my dear friends Jenn and Jeremy (check out their blog: BellyBound) and you can tell which ones were taken with my phone LOL!

I had an amazing time at my party.  If you have any questions about the decorations, desserts and/or libations, let me know!  I couldn’t have pulled this together without the help of my friends and of course, the best boyfriend and my favorite Shift Local activist, Marc 🙂
