. . . this hall took about $15.00 to complete, according to the caption of this illustration from The 1917 Party Book by Dennison Manufacturing Co.
Besides American flags and crepe paper, foliage is used to create a “full soft result.” There are flower garlands with poppies, daisies, and cornflowers as well as evergreen trees and green hanging foliage throughout the hall.
The 1917 Party Book by Dennison Manufacturing Co. is located in the Trade Literature Collection at the National Museum of American History Library. More images from this catalog and others in the Trade Literature Collection can be found on the Galaxy of Images.
