What to Expect
On arrival at your 1940s themed party, guests will arrive through a realistic 40s World War 2 theme sandbag bunker entrance, manned by two armed guards.
Making their way through to the reception area, guests will be presented with their reception drink by uniformed 1940s officers and cigarette glamour girls.
To set the scene, searchlights will play across the sky. A newspaper seller will appear and shout "Extra, extra! Read all about it. Peace declared! No More War" as he hands out facsimile newspapers of the time.
Church bells will ring out as guests enter through a sandbagged prop entrance marked kohl's coupon "to the air raid shelter", where a street party will celebrate amid the ruins.
The theming props in the main room will be achieved with World War II backdrops including an overhead spitfire and blitzed London terraced house. Union Jack bunting and 1940s advertising theme prop posters will cover the walls to help create a realistic 1940s theme setting.
On each place, setting is a small handheld Union Jack and a song sheet for a good old knees up later on. Food is served on enamel plates with drinks in enamel mugs.
The menu is a ration card with dried egg and spam crossed out and replaced by unheard-of luxuries, the likes of which we have not seen for many a year.
After dinner, the Ritz ballroom opens with a demonstration of old time dancing from a small troop followed by some jitterbugging from a lively swing band. Those who don't want to dance can try the casino hut.
