The Roaring Twenties

Lately, I've been craving a 1920s bash, which would be a perfect theme for a New Year's fête!

I'm enamored with the fashion, design, and general spirit of this era, which was filled with economic prosperity and creative flourishes.

I'd love to step back into the period in for a day, particularly in New York or Paris. The romance of speakeasies, the Jazz Age, Art Deco movement, surrealism, the Harlem Renaissance, flappers, and the amazing literature of the time (The Great Gatsby, Siddhartha, Ulysses, The Sun Also Rises...) is captivating. What decade do you wish you could experience?
