Great Gatsby… Theme Parties are all the RAGE!
More and more often we find clients coming to us with a certain theme in mind for their event. Whether it is a holiday party, birthday party, wedding or life event, many people are choosing a theme. Some themes are very simple such as a color scheme, black tie, casual etc… But many are quite distinct or elaborate.
Some of the highlights include a 1929 Chrysler convertible coupe, a 10-piece big band, free flowing champagne, and guests dressed in glittery 1920’s attire. The historic Bank of America building was turned into the “party of the century” with immaculate details and entertainment fit for a Gatsby affair.
Upon arrival guest felt the warm welcome with haute and chic savory treats such as smoked bacon deviled eggs, mini beef wellingtons, savor supper club cupcakes and crab stuffed mushrooms. This was followed by a Seafood ice display and our signature chopped salad with assorted breads.
During a dinner of Bone In Angus Frenched Rib Eye, Jumbo Shrimp Rockefeller, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Vegetarian Wellington, guests were entertained by tap dancers, a 1920’s live band that filled the room with an exciting energy, and a tight rope walker that dangled overhead. As guests smoked e-cigars and danced to the beat of the DJ, a roaming magician and an acro-balance duo delighted the crowd. As the clock stuck midnight, white LED balloons flooded from the ceiling. YES … the party was just getting started!
Dessert continued the elegant retro theme with a modern twist… a Martini Station with Butter Cake, Warm Spiced Buttermilk Donut Holes,, Red Velvet Cake, Chocolate Decadence Cake, Lemon Curd, Blueberries, Candied Almonds, Fresh Sliced Strawberries, Chocolate Ganache, Caramel, Cream Cheese Icing, Real Whipped Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream and Salted Caramel Gelato!
