Party Ideas: Flapper/ Great Gatsby Party

“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”

There is something timeless about the 1920s. The bootlegs, flappers, jazz, all of it has such a precious place in Americana. Despite the Great Depression, Prohibition and the end of WWI, Americans still found joy, albeit through illegal means. Women rebelled against the oppressive Victorian Age and removed their corsets, opted for suntans (since the nouveau riche were all vacationing in posh Sant Tropez now) and bobbed their hair. Men rebelled and mob connections had Rum Runners bringing booze from Cuba while others made their own bathtub gin. It was a dangerous and exciting time to be alive and a perfect theme for a party!

Though the fashion and dance are timeless from the Roaring Twenties, every once in awhile there is a resurgence in popularity due to movies (Chicago, Great Gatsby) or the come back of whiskey and gin cocktails. And to go along with a classy Gatsby party, why not have some flapper entertainment? Sirens perform group flapper and burlesque numbers and even tap solos to put the perfect polish to your evening. We can even teach you and your guests how to jive and Charleston with the best of them!
