Roaring Twenties Party
How YEP brought the 1920s to life for a 21st century party
Ever since the movie The Great Gatsby came out in 2013, we have been waiting for a special client to come to us to do a party based around the Roaring Twenties concept. The time finally came and we could not be anymore excited to be designing and styling a party using elements from the 1920s and some Gatsby influence. The conceptualisation aspect of for us started with research to find out what the 1920s was all about. The emphasis on having fun and spending money has led to the 1920s being called the Roaring Twenties. Once the research aspect was underway, the next step in our conceptualisation process was to see what design ideas of the 1920s could be brought forward to the 21st Century.
Inspiration behind event design
What is Roaring Twenties?
As event stylist, our design conceptualisation had a strong focus on the whole “hush-hush” underground vibes to reflect the 1920s era since the Roaring Twenties was a time where many people defied Prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditions. We added red and yellow lights to create a prohibition ambiance and 1920s effect, as the event space had white walls and needed something extra to jazz it up.
Adding a little touch of glitz and glamour
Food and drinks 1920s style
Drinks wise, the Shake and Stir team produced bespoked cocktails such as The Draper, Vanilla Sky and Rhubby Fizz, which worked well with the 1920s design concept. For instance, Vanilla Sky was served in a tea cup and saucer and the piece de resistance, was the smoking cinnamon stick. If you are wondering whether the cocktail taste as good as it looks, we can reassure that it does!
Overall, this Roaring Twenties party was such a fun party to design and style, and we are looking forward to the next one. If you liked this themed party, check out our Safari Jungle party.
