4 Tips for a Great Gatsby Party

4 Tips for a Great Gatsby Party

There's something about a Great Gatsby/1920s party that's always exciting to guests. It's beautiful, glitzy, and full of glamour and opulence! Everything that makes a party extra special. :)

I've been collecting a series of posts for a Great Gatsby party on my Pinterest board titled "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody" for inspiration:

Here are some of my favorite tips for throwing a Gatsby party:

  1. Glitz: A Gatsby party has to be glitzy! From the outfits to the cake, your guests will expect to be surrounded by glamour. Include gold glitter, sparkle, and metallic touches wherever possible. This is one place where it will almost never look out of style or overdone.

  2. Art Deco Touches: Art deco is the epitome of a Gatsby party, and you can include touches anywhere from the tablecloth to the cake emblem. This fan and scalloped pattern will truly add the authentic touch of the 20's to your event.

  3. Glamour: As I mentioned before, the theme of a Gatsby party is glamour! It's time to utilize your nice silverware and dinnerware, especially if they're old-fashioned. Even if they're not, use the best diningware possible for this type of event.

  4. Be Bold: If a Gatsby party is anything, it's bold. Other events can be more understated, but this is the party to go all out. If possible, find ways to integrate fun, antique items into the decor.  Additionally, don't be afraid to use bold pops of color and fun items like large feathers, tall centerpieces, and glitzy glassware.

A Corporate Client Appreciation Luncheon: Tropical Luau

A Corporate Client Appreciation Luncheon: Tropical Luau

Tropical luaus are always the best kind of party: colorful, exciting, and FUN! We recently planned a tropical luau themed client appreciation luncheon for a corporate client, and it was a wonderful afternoon.

It was held at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, Florida, which is a turtle rescue and rehabilitation center.  It's such a unique and interesting venue that combines beauty and education in one place.


The decor details and centerpieces included silk hibiscus flowers, palm trees, and pineapple cups as the "gift bags" for each guest. It was a fun way to incorporate the theme into something memorable!

Of course there was dessert...

And a booth for tropical photos...

Guests were also given a tour of the facilities.  They learned about the turtles currently being rehabilitated, as well as the mission of the Loggerhead center.
