On May 10th, the world’s greatest party novel known as The Great Gatsby will be out on the big screen. What better to do in its honor than throw a party? There’s always a reason to booze, and thanks to us, you’ll have a step-by-step way to become the Jay Gatsby of our generation. So get your camera ready, round up some kegs, and get to sending us some proof of how you became legend. An invite might be nice, too…
Theme: The Great Fratsby
Decorations: String lights wrapped around pillars, trees, and every possible vertical addition to your house; a massive white tent, to host the event (white bounce house goes off theme, but it’s a bounce house, so it could totally go in place of the tent); light colored decor in creams and beiges, like white lanterns and tiki torches; prohibition themes such as a password door, bathtub full of alcohol, etc.; cigars (candy or otherwise); and flasks for the guests.
Booze: Any 1920s beverage such as an Old Fashioned, Mint Julep, or if you want to be subtle, you could serve Long Island Iced Tea in honor of the novel’s setting.
Costumes: Guys should opt for suspenders, newsboy hats, or suits while girls wear flapper themed dresses.
Music: And finally, in honor of the film’s soundtrack, we’ve chosen 5 songs that have to be at your party. We know you won’t disappoint:
Young And Beautiful – Lana Del Rey
A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got) – Fergie + Q Tip + GoonRock
Back To Black – Beyonce x André 3000
Bang Bang - will.i.am
Over The Love – Florence + The Machine
