Event Recap – Flappers & Fitzgerald: Party with Gatsby!

 Some of you may remember the Harry Potter Holiday Feast that I shared last year. This year we did another literary-themed event —  Flappers & Fitzgerald: Party with Gatsby! It was billed as an evening of dancing and appetizers, complete with mocktail bars.
The big attraction for the night was learning to Charleston and hearing a live band. A member of the faculty taught the dance lesson.

We also found a band called The Recessionals who came and played for us. It was so much fun seeing the students dance to the live music!

I set up a Photo Booth for students with prop printed on card-stock and attached to wooden skewers. I purchased the prop images from this Etsy seller.

I fell in love with the butterfly balls seen in the latest Gatsby movie, so one of my co-workers and I set about making them. They were a true labor of love, but I am so thrilled with how they turned out!

And a final pictures – my coworkers and I. Without them this event never would’ve happened!
