Jazz Age Evening
The term The Jazz Age is attributed to F.Scott-Fitzgerald who wrote the bitter sweet The Great Gatsby. The post world war 1 era reflected a desire to modernise, glamourise and more than anything have fun. Speakeasy`s and hip flasks of hooch were flaunted in the face of prohibition.Women bobbed their hair and shortened their skirts and began to wear make up. The effervescence of the period shows in the jazz music and dancing characterised by The Flappers.
In 2011 we will see this era celebrated in film and television Scorseses "Boardwalk Empire"outlines the birth of the gangster, the women`s movement against a 1920`s backdrop. "The Kings Speech" set a little later with George forced in to the limelight following the abdication of his brother. Wallis Simpson is popping up all over our screens!
We are planning an opulent Jazz Age evening to showcase our china, champagne saucers and a few art deco extras - no prohibition here though!
Contact us if you fancy doing the same for your friendship group/family and we will provide the china and props. Glam the winter away........... Have a look at this clip
