Going Out This Weekend? Try Some Dress-Up Ideas from the Collection
Birdcages, floppy hats and shamrock hats–that’s right, it’s party night at the Smithsonian Libraries
It’s long been advised to learn from the past, and this weekend, we bring to you a selection of recently digitized finds from the collections at the Smithsonian Libraries. We figure you might learn a tip or two on party going. This pamphlet, entitled The 1917 Party Book, has everything you need to know to make sure your night out is a memorable one.
Parties are great, but costume parties are even better. Don’t show up to your social engagement unprepared! Let these costumes and party ideas guide you through this Friday’s soiree, from birdcages to matching “Pats.”
