|Puttin' On The Ritz|
|Invite people to wear dressy clothing from the 1930's and 1940's.
Decorate with Art Deco lights, huge cardboard Art Deco sculptures and minimal floral table-toppers. Keep colors dramatic but minimal.
Have a band that can create the old night club sound. Have a "Live from the Hotel Ritz" radio broadcast with a DJ introducing crooners who sing sultry ballads and commercials from the radio days.
Serve dishes from the recipes of the time period. Have a Hotel owner / Host dressed in a tux greeting people and keep the evening moving.
Print old war-time posters and put them up (nothing too depressing). Print the invitations with the date 1939, and make sure they know that Puttin' On the Ritz means a special night on the town!
