Two weeks ago was the anniversary of the end of prohibition. Jarrod works for a beer company and we were invited to a prohibition themed party sponsored by Labatt. They have a new prohibition series of bevvies that they wanted to promote. I hate going out and haven’t been to a club in a looooong time so I was a little skeptical about going. But we got dressed up and headed to the party. And I was super impressed with the themeing and the fact that people really got into getting dressed up too.
The venue had some gorgeous chandeliers and cool posters digitally displayed.
As you can see, there were also fancy girls dancing in a box. Yep. They also had aeralists and someone in a ring thing pouring drinks in people’s mouths. In a classy way, I swear. The whole setup was pretty awesome. I’m not a fan of going out but it was a good crowd and it wasn’t too crazy. All the drinks were Labatt products and they even had some cocktails made with liquor and a new apple cider type beer. It was delish and I had several. Or several severals. It was fun to get dressed up and here are a few photos of us. Guys have it so easy for these kind of parties since they can just throw on a hat, suspenders and/or vest. Oh and there was a fun photo booth too. We were going for a smug Bonnie and Clyde type pose. Not sure if we pulled that off, but A for effort?
And since I was tipsy, I forced the pugs into taking selfies with me when I got home. They love me so much. Look how annoyed they both look. “Moooooom you’re embarrassing us. And yourself. Go to bed.”
So that was our big night out a few weeks ago. As I said, we aren’t going out type people, but it’s fun every now and then. And this was a fun themed party and I actually loved dressing up for the theme. I already had this dress and had worn it to a wedding a few weeks prior. It wasn’t super prohibition-y but I felt like the fringe and the loose silhouette made it work out without being too costumey. And I added my fun fringe necklace and threw on my faux fur wrap/scarf. Easy peasy.
Are you a fan of themed parties? Going to any themed or holiday parties lately? What’s your fave kind of party? What are you weekend plans? I was sick earlier this week, so I’m hoping to get some relaxing in this weekend. But we’re also going to the Steelers game so that might de-relax me. Fun either way! Everyone have a nice weekend!
