|Popular Science, April 1931|
Just like these fun-loving architects from 1931, you'll want any party costumes that you wear to be both striking and gorgeous - even if you can't dress up as the building you designed. It isn't just the outfits that make a great costume party, though. After the architects got tired of posing in front of that curtain, they probably went off - as you'll want to - to eat delicious snacks, drink refreshing cocktails and dance (too bad there aren't pictures of these guys doing the Charleston). You'll want to do all that, too, and beautiful party supplies such as fun name tags, table cloths, napkins and paper plates will help create just the right atmosphere. They can reinforce a theme for your party too (such as, say - architecture). For a mysterious masked costume party, you may even want to want a few natural wax candles around the room to set the mood.
It's a great idea, when you're looking for a variety of interesting party supplies, to check out comparison shopping sites online, which bring together a variety of great items under one virtual roof. You can have almost as much fun shopping that way, as you will dressing up and enjoying a great party full of costumed friends and special party lights, paper plates and favors. Just make sure that any of your guests who come dressed as skyscrapers stay away from those natural wax candles.
