With the upcoming remake of the Great Gatsby, now is the perfect time to host a Great Gatsby themed party. Set in the roaring 1920s following the First World War, the novel is set on New York’s Long Island - think garden parties, think flappers.
For the perfect Gatsby inspired garden party, have a look at our 1920s themed items.
Have a look at our garden party themed invitation.
Our Garden Essentials Pack will help you cater for your guests, and consider decorating with our jazz trio cutout, lanterns and pom poms. Your backyard will look fabulous with the addition of some lanterns, fairy lights or candles.
Ladies, for evening parties, add a long string of pearls to a simple dress, and add a hat or headband with feathers in it, or even a feather boa. Men can wear a suit with a fedora hat or driving cap, with a handkerchief or rose in the lapel. Also check out some of the images of the costumes in the upcoming movie.
For a casual daytime party, think tennis whites for the women, and casual pants and fedoras for the men.
Draw inspiration from the film:
Play 1920s music. It was the jazz era so look for artists such as Gershwin, Al Jolson, Irving Berlin, Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong.
Serve your guests martinis and champagne, or non-alcoholic punch. Or how about a mint julep. Whilst it was prohibition, home brewing was popular. On the food front, consider finger sandwiches.
If you want to play games, how about croquet or charades?
Or if you want a different take on a 1920s theme, check out our casino night range. The 1920s was the era of the speakeasy!
