How to Throw a 1920’s Gatsby Bridal Shower


As we approach the roaring 20’s once again in 2020, it’s hard not to think about bringing back a little of that art-deco glitz and glamour. Celebrate your bridal shower in style, dollface... Because a little party never killed nobody! Here’s how to throw a 1920s bridal shower fit for The Great Gatsby.

Invitations

Art deco angles, metallics, and moody hues are a must for your paper goods. Invite your guests to spend an evening among glittering bright lights and speakeasy libations, a soiree that’s sure to be the cat’s pajamas!

Attire

Pearls, beaded gowns, and furs are just the thing for this glitzy affair... It’s not every day you get the opportunity to be this glam, so have the girls go all out with the attire! Don’t forget to top it all off with a chic statement headband, a la Daisy Buchanan herself.

Drinks

The best thing about 2020? No prohibition. So keep the drinks flowing, and the party going. A champagne tower goes without saying (not only for refreshment but decoration), and classic 20’s cocktails like the Bee’s Knees will ensure your guests have a roarin’ time. 

Food

Decadent cheese platters, Oysters Rockefeller, and lavish desserts like creme brulee will make your guests feel oh-so luxe. Be sure to prep replenishments beforehand so there’s no missing out on the fun!
Decor

There’s three elements to 1920’s decor that you absolutely should not skimp on-- sparkle, feathers, and flowing pearls! Seriously gals, in this case, less is definitely not more.

Activities

If you’d like to forego the typical games played at dozens of showers before, try a non-traditional bridal shower activity. Schedule a Charleston lesson to bring all that jazz, or a murder mystery game that’s fun for everyone.
