Theme parties can be so much fun. My client wanted a very special celebration for her 30th birthday. We took over a two story town home at The Sunset Tower Hotel as well as their lovely lounge adjacent to the pool.

The party was small in size - fifteen of the birthday girl's closest friends but no detail was overlooked. Guests were asked to dress in attire from that era and a wonderful stylist I work with -Vickie Adamson - created custom headpieces and boas for all of the women. Guests were given personalized hip flasks upon arrival as well as stylish cigarette holders. From the drinks served in porcelain tea cups (to hide the alcohol) to the black and white flicks playing on the screen to the bottles of gin in the tub - guests knew this would be a very special evening.

A highlight of the evening was a "raid" featuring authentic Keystone Cops who busted in to the party. Just before dessert and cake were served - a masterpiece by Rosebud Cakes - - I brought in dance teachers to teach guests the Charleston. This intimate event proves that you do not need a large guest list to throw a memorable party.
