A Glittering Great Gatsby Soirée
Lettice’s luxury party planning team was called upon by two sophisticated young gentlemen to throw a glittering Great Gatsby Soirée at London’s Loft Studios. Surrounded by industrial brick, huge windows and lofty ceilings, their guests enjoyed cocktails and canapés, then danced the night away to a live 1920s band. See how it all went down….
Lettice Styling: Guests entered the venue, greeted by security guards in fedoras and red carnations. They were directed up a set of steps to a doorway highlighted with a single spotlight… guests knocked and were admitted to a speakeasy-style venue.
Black and gold was the key to this event theme, with a bespoke gold bar, gold mirrorballs and gold tealight holders. Poseur tables dressed with tall vases of ostrich feathers gave an air of 1920’s glam to the bar area, while 6ft kentia palms flanked the doorway, reminiscent of Cocoanut Grove.
Musical instruments, old records and prohibition-era photos and posters were strewn around the room, with gold foil curtains adorning the walls.
They drank: Flutes of peach bellini, classic cosmopolitans and minty mojitos.
They danced: The band started off with some old school classics to set the mood, before moving on to more modern-day tunes in a ’20s style.
With sound and lighting by our fab friends at Oxygen Events, the guests danced the night away under the sparkling mirrorballs.
They ate: Succulent chicken skewers with a sweet chilli dip, mushroom arancini balls and lamb kofta skewers, followed by a selection of sliders and mini hot dogs to soak up the cocktails.
A huge art deco red velvet cake was presented to the birthday boys, which went down a treat.
The client said: ‘I just wanted to say thank you for an outstanding job on Saturday – the party was truly amazing and the boys were thrilled. It looked stunning!’
