We stepped back in time at MOHAI this week for their 1920’s themed Open House! The Museum Of History And Industry was transformed into a speakeasy, keeping in theme with their current Prohibition exhibit on display. We had so much fun putting our Art Deco display together, where we were thrilled to feature an array of Pre-prohibition bottles on display that were on sale from a private collector. Our 1920’s menu was served on a gorgeous blush sequined linen, welcoming guests into the flapper and speakeasy era.
The 1920’s were a great era in the culinary scene, where a typical party would include hors d’oeuvres such as deviled eggs and tea sandwiches. Lisa Dupar Catering served Mini Beef Wellingtons, Panko Crusted Griddled Deviled Eggs, Roasted Potato Cups with marinated artichokes and tomatoes, and Blush Cake Bites on the menu.
Of course, the 1920’s wouldn’t be complete without an absinthe fountain! Along with a classic absinthe drip with sugar from the glass fountain, we served a non-alcoholic version with pressed green apple juice, elder flower syrup, lemon and soda. Guests enjoyed Lisa’s homemade tonic to take home at the end of the night.
Thanks to MOHAI for hosting a fabulous evening where everyone enjoyed traveling back in time for a night!
