At the entrance to our house we put boxes with "imported gin" "whiskey" and other crates, with a sign I made for the house to be closed for prohibition violations (my friends loved this).
Once inside, we had wanted posters of my hubs and I that I created with a wanted poster generator.
I also made round printable banners I hung around the house in classic Gatsby-era style, along with other printables (cupcake toppers, drink labels, etc- all of which you can download in an upcoming post.)
|Can you catch my typo on my chalkboard wall? lol.|
We put all the beverages in paper bags (with "medical use" tags added to all of them, with what drinks they were).
Because this speakeasy has plenty of underground criminals (haha) we made a photobooth-esque wall that was a prison lineup (along with a printable I made for the lineup sign- using the date and our location). I made the lineup wall from a white shower curtain and black electrical tape (because we are classy like that, haha). My friends had plenty of fun taking their 1920s prison photos. ;)

The food was pretty straight forward- lots of finger foods, such as deviled eggs, mini sandwiches, cheese/meats/crackers, and these super easy pecan+cream cheese+dried apricot things that my friend's sister-in-law made for her bridal shower and I just had to try making them. SOOOO easy!

|We setup a rack that helped save space elsewhere- candle lighting (top), jello shots (second shelf) taffy and take-home treat bags of taffy (middle shelf) cups/plates/bowls/napkins/utensils (second from bottom) and more decor (bottom).|

The hubs also made some Spike-Your-Juice homebrewed juices, which we put in these brown beer bottles with little tags I made for them.
and put on some 1920s tunes (found some a cool playlist here).

Have a great day!
