Party Decorations

In 1917, those wanting ideas for party decorations could turn to The 1917 Party Book from the Dennison Manufacturing Company of Framingham, Massachusetts. 

Included are ideas for hall and table decorations, costumes, gifts, and more. The Valentine’s Day tables are shown decorated with hearts, roses, silhouettes, and Cupids. And the suggestions for decorating a Valentine Hall include using crepe paper, fringe, and garlands of roses. Ideas for other holiday decorations, such as St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and the 4th of July, are also included.

The 1917 Party Book and other trade catalogs from the Dennison Manufacturing Company are located in the Trade Literature Collection at the National Museum of American History Library.—Alexia MacClain
