I feel I should start this post with a congratulations to a dear friend who is actually the reason we had a girl’s night out. Brandon and I were incredibly lucky to have Cassie officiate our wedding and honestly we both feel like we could never repay her for the remarkable and heartfelt words she shared with us and our family that day. She is marrying the love of her life, who also happens to be one of Brandon’s best friends, in exactly 13 days from this post and no one around them can contain their excitement for the beautiful and beloved couple. So with that in mind, I’d like to share with you all, the flapper themed girl’s night we put together to celebrate our lovely friend.
We started the night out, meeting at my home, for champagne toasts and lite bites before heading out to a burlesque show downtown, followed by some bar hopping. Since we were going out, I wanted to make sure that I didn’t go too overboard on the decorations but still make it special for our friend. Champagne seemed to fit our 1920’s vibe so I went with that in a way that was still modern and fun. Love balloon and napkins were an easy find on Amazon and the DIY champagne bottle and tassels pour I put together the night prior. The bottle turned out to be a great prop for some silly photos and a nice surprise.
Prohibition encourages audience participation in roaring 20’s attire that we whole heartedly went with. While we all felt we rocked our fringe dresses and headpieces, we didn’t really stand out. It was nice to see that most of the audience joined in on the fun. As far as cost, ticket prices vary by seat and a minimum dinner purchase is required in addition to the show ticket. The Moon light Dolls swung from rafters and danced in giant martini glasses, all while a band played lively music above us. The show is fantastic and the food is decent albeit, pricey. I’d consider it a worthwhile splurge. If Burlesque shows aren’t your jam, the bar is open to walk in patrons, and a couple of bars in the area will also fit a speakeasy vibe. I would suggest Tongue-Cut-Sparrow or Public Service, if you aren’t in the mood for the show.
By the end of the night we all considered the evening a complete success. We were all so happy to be celebrating such a sweet and loving lady that we didn’t even notice the night fly by. Cheers to the future Mrs. Wintermyer, we all love you lady.
