Speakeasy Party Part 1 (You're reading it!)
This weekend, my fiance and I had a Speakeasy Party at our apartment. Early February seemed like the perfect time for it: Christmas and holiday festivities have ended, Chicago is chilly and frequently dreary, and people are looking for something fun to do to break up the season.
Just before our slew of guests arrived, I snapped this pic of my cousin and me.
And then this little gem with my handsome fiance.
We thought we looked pretty damn good, but then Clara's friends Ryan and Matthew showed up. Let's just say they're both makeup wizards, and they brought this huge box of tools:
Gasp. Perfect timing. Before the rest of our guests arrived, we were pampered and beautified.
And by the end of the night, we had gotten everyone sufficiently sloshed. Mission accomplished, I guess. It's a Speakeasy party, after all.
P.S. I love this man...
I have a bunch of amazing images from the set up and decor, and a delicious 1920s recipe for Champagne punch, all coming at you this week! :)
