Welcome your guests with large feathered displays that create a mesmerizing ambiance. If you have a covered front door area, these displays work perfectly. Otherwise, you can use them as table decorations inside.

Make a grand entrance with glitzy gold or silver foil curtains. Flank the edges with balloon trim or solid black drapes to add depth and interest.

Fireplace Mantle

Utilize your fireplace mantle as a focal point for themed decorations. Fill it with ornate champagne bottles, feathered decor, and a balloon spill-off. These elements will add a touch of decadence to your Great Gatsby party.

Food Area/Kitchen

When choosing decorations for the food area, consider the types of food you will be serving. Tiered platforms with beaded details work well for displaying snacks. Painted bottles with flowers, feathers, and beads add a prohibition-era feel.

Back Porch (weather permitting)

If you have an outdoor area, add some bistro lights for a beautiful ambiance. Consider using Edison bulbs or flickering bulbs to give it a cool Gatsby party flair. Don't forget to provide hand fans for a period-inspired decoration.
