Gatsby Inspired New Year’s Eve Dinner Party Ideas

I know, I know: Christmas hasn’t even happened yet! Why am I talking about New Year’s Eve already?

And I hear you, fair point. But if you are looking to throw an unforgettable New Year’s Eve party, you’ve got to get planning now! I’m channeling my inner Gatsby for this party. Black and gold, with a hint of art deco flair and a champagne tower: all the makings for a good time.

Ask your friends to dress their best in modern Gatsby inspired ensembles. This is not a costume party; this is a party worth dressing up for! Besides, “dressing up” adds a bit of fun to a party, don’t you think?

Now I put this idea board together channeling a dinner party, but if that’s not your speed, or you have too many friends you’d want to invite, this design concept will translate beautifully to any party style.

Ok, enough chit chat, more pictures. Here’s what I’m thinking:

Beads and Lace – A Glamorous Vintage Wedding Inspiration Board

I don’t know what it is, but I am totally in such a vintage mode lately! This week I just kept feeling like I need to do an inspiration board that was for the classy couple that loves that refined, vintage vibe. For this week’s inspiration board, I’m focusing on ornate beading, with light floral and lace accents, and a neutral but sophisticated color palette. Here’s what I had in mind:

Art Deco {Scalloped} Inspired Wedding

Happy Wednesday and welcome back!

Today’s inspiration board is so much fun. It’s a wedding idea board for the couple that wants timeless classic, with a hint of the fabulous Gatsby flair. Inspired by the Art Deco era, I’ve put together this wedding idea board focusing on bright gold and white, with scallop accents. Naturally, I’m drawn to black as a bold accent color, but a mint green, rich cobalt blue or any other color you’d want to incorporate for a pop of color would work too.

The whole idea of this Art Deco inspired wedding actually came to me because I found out that today is World Architecture Day. Now, I’m no architecture buff or anything, but one of my absolute favorite styles of design is Art Deco. I just couldn’t resist all of the beautiful inspiration!

Here’s what I had in mind for this Art Deco inspired wedding:
