1920’s Great Gatsby Birthday Party

Great Gatsby 30th Birthday Party 

My brother, his wife, and their close friend had the fun idea of throwing themselves a birthday party to say goodbye to their 20’s and hello to their “Dirty 30’s”! With the rage of the roaring 20’s following the release of the Great Gatsby last year, they decided no better way to celebrate in style and class than with a 1920’s Great Gatsby themed party.

PART’Y DETAILS

They booked the perfect venue for their event – Diamond’s Billiards in Brea, CA – not only did they have the perfect space to accommodate this creative party theme, but they were super flexible and easy to work with in planning the logistics, food and drinks, and music selection. Next, the party planning begin – guest list, invitation, 1920’s wardrobe, menu planning, details, and all of the other wonderful details that went into pulling off this elegant adults affair. Take a look at the end result – you’ll just love the FABULOUS details!

I wish I could take the credit for the beautiful and creative party decor, but the credit rightfully goes to the talented decorating sister duo – Nena & Lydia Banuelos.  Inspired by the creative invitation above designed by Computer Art Nerd (Etsy shop), the elegant 1920’s Great Gatsby styled black and gold decor and a stunning dessert table and creative backdrop greeted dressed-up partygoers. These two ladies ran with the birthday couple’s vision and ideas, infusing creative elements (such as my brother’s unique vintage drink menu), and transforming the intimate space into a scene right out of the roaring 20’s.

 I was blown away by the fact that every single person was uniquely dressed to fit the theme – I really felt like I went back in time and was in attendance at a Great Gatsby party or at a 1920’s popular nightclub. Besides the awesome decor – the music, food, and drinks were great! Not to mention the fabulous photo booth that was big hit and awesome addition to the party. Apparently some of us were addicted to the photo booth! Check out our photo obsession! We had such a blast, who would have thought a photo booth could be so much fun?!

Etsy Thursday: The Great Gatsby Wedding

The Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding

This week’s Etsy Thursday post is full of beautiful inspiration for a 1920’s, art deco, vintage, Great Gatsby styled wedding. I may be a little late in sharing inspiration for The Great Gatsby since there has been a signifcant buzz in the media for some time, however the timing is perfect for me personally because I just saw the movie over the weekend! I LOVED it and on a side note I thought Leonardo DiCaprio looked amazing – in my opinion he hasn’t looked this hot since his starring role in the Titanic! I recall being a huge fan of the book in high school and I probably should have read it again before seeing the movie, but that didn’t stop me from loving the acting, imagery, wardrobe/styling, storyline, whimsical nature, and the wonderful flashback to the popular 20’s – I am a fan! If you haven’t seen the movie yet – go and see it! If you have seen it, what did you think?

I can’t believe how many lovely pages of Etsy wedding finds are available to search through, so many that I had to just pick a few of my favorites from the first 15 pages (I wasn’t even able to get through all the pages). The Great Gatsby inspirational wedding finds below really reminded me of the images that I saw in the movie. I really hope you enjoy this week’s Etsy Thursday post!
