I am doing something a bit different this year and leaving the gore behind.
Each year we have a theme party that is announced the previous year and this year will be a Great Gatsby Party. I am working in the phrase “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” and possibly will have a few of the guests play the Winking Murder Game. There will be approximately 65-70 guests with a 20’s genre band for music and dancing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5X2xMdoR7k
Any suggestions are greatly welcomed.

Save the Date Email:
Text Invitation Font Wedding invitation Parallel

Invitation to be Mailed:
Commemorative plaque

Does anyone know of a source for a spotlight shining into the sky that isn’t a lot of money??
I contacted a Vintage Car Club to rent a 20’s or 30’s car to sit in the driveway for pictures as the guests arrive.
I will then email the pictures later.
‘A Little Party Never Killed Nobody’ will be playing from a boom box so that the song can be heard as the guests arrive.

Food Buffet Table:
I purchased a number of white ostrich feathers in different sizes and 24” Eiffel tower vases for the main centerpieces.

Cocktail Tables:
There will be 8 - 36” round stand-up tables. I will use black round tablecloths to the ground and gold satin toppers.
The centerpieces will be an Eiffel tower vase with smaller ostrich feathers sitting on a 10” round mirror. I will post pictures later.

I am hosting a Great Gatsby Murder Mystery party. This is the first year I have ever done this and I am so excited. I am turning my house into a 1920's Speakeasy. Each guest will play a character. I sent out invitations with a description of the character they will be playing. I have hired a bartender to serve coctails from that era and a caterer to serve appetizers and a sit down dinner. I usually have a large party with 50 to 100 guests but this year will be a smaller group of my closests friends and family. They all seem to be just as excited as I am.

I can't wait to see more from your party. We aren't having a party this year due to my best friends wedding and a vacation that took a lot of my time and money so I have now started to work on next years party. The them is going to be Spooky Speakeasy, so all this stuff will be right up my alley for next year.

Our party was a great success. Everyone seemed to be enjoying and I received many compliments on the decorations.
I contacted a car club to rent a vintage car to be parked in the driveway as guests arrived. Pictures were taken of everyone and I emailed the photos to the respective people.

I used stand-up highboys cocktail tables. I believe this forces the guests to mingle more throughout the evening instead of sitting comfortably in a seat all night long. The tables were decorated with black table cloths and gold toppers. I purchased round mirrors on the internet.
