A Great Gatsby or Roaring 20’s themed party is full of glamor and sparkle! Following the recent release of the movie “The Great Gatsby”, 1920’s themed parties have become a hot trend in events. Creating a party that takes your guests back to the Prohibition Era is easy. Start with a classic pallet of black and gold and embellish with touches of crystal. For your tablescape, use simple patterned linens as a base and accent with gold rimmed charger plates or goldware for a more opulent feel. For the table numbers, opt for an art deco style cutout with a clean font for the numbers. Continue your art-deco feel with your food. Choose a clean geometric pattern for cakes or serve hors d’oeuvres on gold dishes.
We love these 20’s themed details that add that something special to the party. Instead of traditional chair sashes, consider a chair cover with beaded fringe, reminiscent of flirty flapper dresses. Pearl accents on napkin rings and in the floral design add a soft feel to the room. For a more grand centerpiece, this feathered arrangement with orchids and crystals becomes a focal point in the room. We can’t forget the champagne! A champagne tower is a wonderful design element and is always a great hit with guests.
For a fun way to get your guests in the spirit, provide the male guests with fedoras and the female guests with long strands of pearls when they arrive. Continue the 20’s feel with a costumed live band to keep guests on the dance floor long into the night.
