  3. Hello Threesaparty bloggers,
    I would like to request your assistance on a most important matter. I am hosting a Quarter of a Century Birthday Bash in 1940’s fashion. The only problem is I live on a tropical island and therefore everything that you had for your brilliant shindig is not available to me. What expert advice can you provide me with?
