There's something magical about hosting a themed party. From the stunning decor to the delicious treats, every detail adds to the excitement. And if you're looking for a timeless theme that never fails to impress, a Great Gatsby party is the way to go.

Inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald's iconic novel, a Great Gatsby party captures the essence of the Roaring Twenties with its flapper fashion, Art Deco design, and epic dance moves. It's no wonder that these parties are having a moment. But planning your own Great Gatsby extravaganza requires some know-how. Read on to discover tips on how to create a party that will leave your guests in awe.

How to Host a Great Gatsby Party

The first step to throwing an unforgettable Great Gatsby party is to choose the right location. Whether you opt for a virtual event or an in-person gathering, finding a venue with a '20s sensibility is key. Look for places that showcase the elegance and opulence of the era, such as hotels, ballrooms, or museums built in the 1920s style. If you prefer something more low-key, a speakeasy or dance hall will also set the perfect mood.

When it comes to the decor, think Art Deco. Look for geometric prints, metallic and mirrored pieces, bold colors, and ornamental chandeliers. If you're hosting the party at home, you can find budget-friendly pieces that allude to the design of the decade. Consider renting or buying a focal piece, like ornamental lighting or an eye-catching gold backdrop mirror. Thrift stores are also great places to discover unique '20s-style finds without breaking the bank.

To set the mood, opt for a black and gold color scheme and glitzy elements. Metallics like gold foil, glittering balloons, and mirror mosaic trays work well. Create a glamorous entryway with gold and black balloon arches and sprinkle glittering confetti around glassware and on the dessert table. White and silver ostrich feather centerpieces and pearl necklaces draped on various surfaces add an elegant touch. And don't forget to provide pearl necklaces as fun party favors.

Dress code for Great Gatsby party

Of course, a Great Gatsby party wouldn't be complete without dressing the part. Encourage your guests to embrace the 1920s flapper style. Women should wear straight, sleeveless, loose dresses adorned with beads, sequins, and fringe. Feather boas and pearl necklaces add the finishing touches. For men, solid suits are a must, but feel free to experiment with pinstripes, plaid, and pastels. Don't forget the flashy bowtie and fedora to complete the look. The era was all about having fun and taking fashion risks.

No Great Gatsby party would be complete without the right music. Jazz, blues, swing, and Broadway tunes perfectly capture the essence of the 1920s. You can create a playlist or even hire a pro to teach guests popular dance moves like the Charleston and foxtrot. For a modern twist, consider playing the soundtrack from the 2013 Great Gatsby film, which blends classic jazz with contemporary hip hop.
