The Cotton Club

Yesterday we celebrated Simon’s birthday with a 1920s themed Cotton Club party. We joined two tables together stretched through our dining room and enjoyed a wonderful meal with a collection of our friends. I had decided to focus decorations on black and white, and covered the tables with a long white table cloth peppered with tealight candles in large Agee jars and bunches of nasturtiums, as well as hanging a room divider made from black and white crepe paper streamers. We served guests Gin Rickeys in jars, and spent a lovely evening listening to Jazz, talking, and laughing. The evening was a lot of fun, and I have to say having spent the past few weeks researching the 1920s I am completely enamoured with this decade now. You can see my Pinterest board for the party planning here.
