This time around I decided to bring my family along with me. It was such an adventure. The children behaved really well but they had their moments of course because it really isn't a place for children my babies ages. It more for adults but I am really glad that we took them. It gave them a chance to see and do things they never have before.
We drove to Brooklyn and then took a ferry boat ride to Governor's Island. It was the first time my children were on a boat and they really loved it. We plan on taking them on the Staten Island Ferry this summer since its free. For a family of five-free is a beautiful word to hear. Heck-for anyone it is hehe
I wore a 1930's inspired outfit and attempted to dress my children up. Some parents dressed their children in authentic 20s/30s outfits (which was adorable!) but I wanted mine to look cute but be very comfortable. So, the boys and their daddy wore polo shirts and khaki shorts while bunny girl and I wore dresses. They were all such good sports. I am a lucky mama!
I did use an authentic 1930's black crocheted handbag and the pattern of the hat I wore was a 1930's pattern. Brittany from Va-Voom Vintage made the hat for me especially for this event-you can read about it all here. I love my hat!!!
I accessorized with a simple black choker purchased at a thrift store for 2.00 dollars and a pair of black stud earrings. My hair is luckily already wavy so I simply put hair styling clips in the front and set my hair as I usually do. Then the day of I brushed out the waves in the front and clipped my hair up to give more of a bob look. I hope it looked okay!
Hope you enjoy a little glimpse in the Jazz Age Lawn party!
Do you have events like these where you live? Have you gone too them lately or plan to?
