Boardwalk Empire NYE Party: the inspiration

B and I are infatuated with HBO's Boardwalk Empire and - since ten of our fantastic friends from Vancouver (and two fabulous friends from Kamloops) agreed to visit for NYE - we thought it would make the perfect party theme. Cue the champagne, feathers, and strings of pearls, (fake) guns, suspenders, and bow ties. The night was perfect and the company, top notch.

I will be sharing more details from the party later this week but here is the inspiration board I used to prepare for the main event.

Since the styles of the 1920's have made a comeback as of late, gathering inspiration was much easier than I had anticipated. I focused on pieces that heightened the vintage charms: paper chains, tarnished silver and brass, antique candle holders, and lots of champagne flutes! As the clock struck midnight we played with sparklers and confetti rockets in the snow. What better way to ring in 2011?

Stay tuned for the party...

I've heard so much about that show but I've never seen it :(
I suppose I don't have the high tech gear to watch it. (ie. cable channels that include HBO)
