help. I have procrastinated til I can procrastinate no longer!

can you craftsters help me with some last minute ideas?

This a very informail gathering, but we always try to throw parties with a bit of theme to encourage some interaction beyond discussing the weather.

I made up invitations with the menu samling and a request for fine attire. But that's all I got!


Would you like to go to a pants party?

I think the easiest thing to do would be to make a mix of 40's big band music to play at the party.  It will certainly help add to your theme.  The popular ones from that period are Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman.  Solo artists like Sinatra and Bing Crosby were also very big as well as Ella Fitzgerald (who has a track called, appropriately, What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?) and Billy Holiday.

Check out the newest Budget Living. It covers the "40's themed New Year's Eve Party" to the max: recipes (food and classic drink), costuming, set-up "mug" photo shoot, etc. It looks like it could be right up your alley!

I was just going to be a smarty pants and say that Sinatra is more 50s than 40s.   Grin  Ella & Louis are great, if you go to Pottery Barn & Restoration Hardware, they have post Xmas sale for their CDs for like $5. Big Band is a sure thing though.  Great music.

Anyway, what about Zoot Suits, Circle skirts?
