Prohibition Party

The People like to throw one big party each year, usually around Memorial Day. Last year the People hosted a "Wine Tasting" party, and this year it was a "Prohibition Party." The Prohibition Party turned out great! Everyone came in costume and really put a lot of thought and effort into their outfits.

The Women were fawning all over me the whole night. It became embarrassing after a while, because they all have husbands.

Since it was a Prohibition Party, all the booze was hidden in clever containers like vases and teapots. The vases each had different color flowers in them so you knew what booze was in what vase. To further hide the evidence of booze at the party, everyone drank from coffee cups so the coppers wouldn't know what they were really drinking. For music, Ian downloaded a bunch of 20's era tracks from the Internet. There were some cool tunes.

Ian made up cards instructing the reader where to find what type of booze and also telling the reader how to make some popular drinks from the 20's like - Horse's Neck, White Lady, The Bronx, Between the Sheets and a Monkey Gland. Most of them contained gin and some sort of fruit juice.

Some of the ladies dressed as flappers.

And the men dressed as various "characters" from the 20's.

Nate, Katherine and Andy had their "20's Plantation Owners" look working for them.

Can't you see Nate lounging on the front porch sipping some sweet tea while the workers pick the cotton?

Kris was sporting a hip zoot suit.

Bill did a great job on his gangster outfit.

And Ian looks to be up to no good in a suit like this!

The night got kind of rowdy as it grew later ...

Kari turned into a Betty Boop impersonator for some reason.

Lyn decided to practice her supermodel skills.

And Kris ... Well, I think the head gear says more than words here.

I was so tired after the party! I actually slept in the next day and didn't wake Woman until like 10am. I think I had what People refer to as a hang over. I'm not sure what that means though.

The People had quite a mess to clean up in the morning.

after the party

Woman also reported that the floor was sticky! LOL! It wasn't my fault this time!

The People are already brainstorming some ideas about the party theme for next year. I think we should do a Pug themed party, but they aren't really buying into it.

    My mom throws a Joe Cain Day party every year to bring some of the Mobile Mardi Gras to the 'ham. This year was my first Mardi Gras and I loved it!!

    Wow! That was a great party. What great costumes! It looks like lots of fun! Your Woman certainly knows how to throw a party.

    Great party idea! Very clever all around, and yes - so very soon after the vaca - you do have some super-humans around there. Maybe that should be the theme of the next party - super hero's get plastered - woohoo! Take a shot and save the world!

What a great party and what a great idea to host a party every year. I bet The Woman and Ian's friends look forward to the party all year long. Cant wait to see what next year's theme is!

    Good Night!!! Everyone looked great and what fun that looks like y'all were having! Those ideas were great. Norman, you must have been supervising those flappers...and Chris in the Zoot goodness I hope he didn't have to stop and get gas on the way there or the way home!

    Looks like an awesome party! One question, though.........why would you WANT to drink something called an "Monkey Gland"?

  • At 7:43 PM, Blogger Frances Louise said…
