Speakeasy Party


Speakeasy decor runs from dimly lit bar style to Cotton Club swank. Either way, you’ll want to want to set the mood with candlelight, dark colors, leather furniture, vintage bottles and crates and lots of red and black accents. Add an authentic vibe with prohibition era signs, posters and props.

Steal These Ideas

Wine Barrels

Use them for cocktail tables or side tables and top them with simple candles. Set them under a wide plank to make a back alley bar (also available to rent from many party rental companies).

Vintage Props

Borrow or rent old time item like old suitcases, typewriters, metal fans, cigar boxes and old liquor bottles. A vintage sofa or chair makes a great photo booth prop.

Wanted Posters

Ask an artistic friend to mock up a few “FBI’s Most Wanted” signs and add pictures of the guest of honor or other distinguished guests.

Classic Car

Ask around for someone willing to lend you a classic Rolls (or any cool old car) and park it out front for a great first impression and photo opportunity.
