Cocktail parties in the home have been popular since the 1920s, after the onset of Prohibition. Join us for a look at cocktail culture fashion as we travel through time. We will focus on silhouettes in clothing from the late 1940s through the 1960s, as we explore the connections of fashion and cocktails during this interesting period, not only in clothing styles, but also in home décor and accessories.
Visit McMahon Wintonbury or Prosser to pick up your mocktail kit (while supplies last). All Summer Reading events are generously funded by the Friends of the Bloomfield Public Library.
