The seaside quarters of the Pine Orchard Yacht and Country Club will be decorated in high Art Deco style. Guests can also enjoy lawn croquet, hand-rolled cigars, photos with classic cars and more. Dress is 20s-themed optional.
Cocktail music will be by the Skyler Hagner Trio and dinner and dance music will be by eight-piece band Hothouse.
