Keep the guests moving, laughing, and entertained with theseRoaring 20s Party Ideas. Try creating a menu to match the party theme.

The Roaring 20s gangster era may have been a time when prohibition made alcohol illegal, but that doesnít mean that other foods from the period were outlawed. You can put together a great gangster inspired or themed party with some of these foods that were popular during the Roaring 20s gang.ster era

I donít know about you but starting dessert first sounds like a great idea with some gelato. Back then it was called Venetian Ice Cream and the guests will love it. Next you can track down the ingredients for a Waldorf Salad, that creamy sweet sensation of the twenties. Then, serve up the main meal of Hollandaise Potatoes, Asparagus and striped bass or chicken for those who dislike fish.

Waldorf Salad

For this unique Roaring 20s menu item youíll need the following ingredients: 1 cup apples chopped, Granny smith or a Sweet tart apple, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, 1 cup celery, chopped, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/4 cup raisins (optional), 1/4 cup walnuts (optional).

Youíll need to sprinkle the apples with the lemon juice after you chop them. Then place in a bowl with the other ingredients. Toss the ingredients together with the mayonnaise. Make sure all pieces are thoroughly coated.

Venetian Ice Cream Youíll have to try out this Roaring 20s recipe on your guest with the following ingredients: 3 cups milk, 1-1/2 cups heavy cream, 6 egg yolks, 3/4 cups sugar.

Mix milk and cream in medium saucepan. Warm until a foam forms on the edges of the mixture. Remove from heat. Beat together egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl until frothy. Pour the egg mixture into the milk mixture while whisking constantly.

Return saucepan to medium heat. Stir with wooden spoon until mixture gels slightly and sticks to back of spoon. Remove from heat immediately. Pour mixture through a sieve to remove any egg lumps that may have formed. Cover and chill for several hours overnight.

Put mixture into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers instructions. At the point of adding the gelato to the ice cream maker you can add whatever flavoring you like, some vanilla or chocolate or even other ingredients.

WITH THE CALENDARS PAGE: As each gangster player enters the hall he/she is given a calendar's page. The gangstergirls receive even, the boys - odd numbers. During the gangster party the possessors of the pages are suggested different tasks. 1. To gather according to the months. 2. To gather according to the days of the weeks. 3. To make up the number 1998. 4. To make up teams of Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays etc. 5. To find the yesterday (for example "the 25th of December" looks for "the 24th of December" etc.) 6. To choose the pair. The last game is played while dancing. Before every new dance the leader announces any number from 35 to 55. The players must form the pairs so that the sum of their numbers is equal to the announced number. For example the leader announced number 37. So, the pair may consist of the players with the numbers 30 and 7, or 18 and 19 on their pages. In all the tasks win the players who are the first to do them.
