For my next catering class project we have to plan a New Year's Eve celebration. We have to do the demographics, the marketing plan, the menu planning and costing, come up with a theme, etc. We are at the brain storming stage, and I thought I could get ides from you folks, seeing as you are all so clever ! Before I get into any trouble here, let me just say, this is just an exercise in creativity, I'm not looking for anyone to do my homework, ok? Here goes. We decided on a 1940's swing (as in the dance, not the bizarre conjugal practice) party. I need to come up with the menu, 2 or 3 options per course. But we also have to think about decorations, entertainment, advertising. I wasn't around in the forties. Not really sure what was 'in'. I'm doing some surfing to find forties menu ideas and will look at old cookbooks, but if you have ideas, I'd love to hear them. Be creative! Thanks!
