Celebrate Roaring 20’s-style! Give a nod to the Art Deco era in your invitation to any kind of party, or go full-on Great Gatsby with feathers and pearls, glitter and glam, and a playlist of period jazz to set the mood.
Bite-sized foods and desserts are “of the time” and are easy to prepare or pick up pre-made. Casino games and cocktails were popular – especially mint juleps, gin rickeys, and spiked lemonade – but champagne was mandatory, and cigars were expected.
An invitation in black and metallics suits your Gatsby vibe, but other Art Deco designs are also appropriate. Once you’ve selected an invitation, follow the prompts to insert your party information. Change the font style and color, if you’d like, but keep in mind that slim and glamorous lettering is period correct.
If you’re going for authentic, make it a late party, perhaps 8 o’clock in the evening to 1 o’clock a.m. You can handle the night hours just this once, and it gives you more prep time, too. Encourage guests to wear 1920’s apparel with a notation on the invite, and be sure to include “optional” if you’re open to non-costumed partiers.
Now that you’ve personalized and perfected your invitation, it’s time to send it on its way. You can take advantage of 21 st Century tech and share your Great Gatsby gathering online via SMS, Facebook, or WhatsApp, or acknowledge the past with printed invitations mailed in hand-addressed envelopes.

The 1920’s were roaring then and a great party theme now. Maybe even a Great Gatsby Party. Calling all flappers and their fellas!
