1930s Party Photos

Diamond Dame reader Colette from Australia wanted to plan a big 1930s style party to celebrate her 30th birthday. Colette emailed me for some advice about what to wear and I gave her some tips on dressing up for the party and how to get a classic 'Hollywood glamour' look.

I'm putting together some information to share on Diamond Dame about throwing dress-up theme parties and how to get the right look and have fun with the party theme - but in the meantime here's some pictures from Collette's birthday bash she graciously agreed I could share on Diamond Dame:

Hi Sharon, you remember I contacted you in regards to my 30th party, 1930's style with dress dilemmas, well here is a photo and I will send you more. I had a friend do my hair, which looked awesome, and bought the floor length dress and wrap from salvos for a total cost of $26 my long black gloves cost the same amount!!

We had a blast and so may people dressed up and had heaps of fun, so thanks for the inspiration, enjoy the photo

Regards,
Colette

Collette and her husband Nathan looking fantastic!

Colette's parents

Party guests really got into the theme -
dress-up parties are a blast when everyone
gets into the spirit of things


Have you thrown a themed (1920s, 1930s or 1940s) dress-up party? I invite you to send in photos to sharonblance@gmail.com to share on Diamond Dame.
