@happybridetobe2013:  if you don’t have Pinterest, send me a PM with your email address and I will send you an invite.

Start collecting pics of looks that you like. After a while you will see a trend developing.

Also look on http://www.theperfectpalette.com- pick put your colors and see what the inspiration boards look like.

Google is also your friend

Men wore a lot of black and white in their suits in those days. You could do a black tablecloth and a white runner.

White napkins with a turquoise adornment of some sort- a napkin ring, ribbon tie etc.

Use turquoise for your vases as blue flowers are difficult. If you can’t find blue vases at a reasonable price you can get plain glass vases or even use tin cans and cover them with paper- maybe print out wanted posters from the era or posters about prohibition.Wrap with a turquoise ribbon. This would also work for candles in cylinder vases.

An alternative is to use white cloths with a striped runner

Note the mini champagne bottles used as placecarc holders.

For a different look you could see if you could find a striped tablecloth like this- very reminiscent of the pinstriped suits of the era.

Do a lot of googling and find ideas to support your theme. Props like this could be used on the bar or the gift table.

Note how they brought in the blue with the bottles of gin.
