Casino Party Testimonial

Your team did a fantastic job at our surprise 50th Birthday. Darrin showed up on time to start setting up. Jan and Bruce arrived, introduced themselves and were ready to start the night as the first guest arrived.

The personalized fake money was a nice touch! Our guests were both new & experienced at Blackjack & Craps and they both commented on how much fun they had.

One guest mentioned that Bruce remembered everyone's name!

I'll be sure to recommend Funtastic Events to anyone looking for a great addition to their party.
Thanks Again!

Great Gatsby Themed PartyAfter the film a few years ago called ‘the Great Gatsby’ no wonder everybody became obsessed with the glamour and style of the 1920’s. People everywhere are taking the opportunity to celebrate the styles and parties of the Gatsby era.

If you’ve been thinking of hosting a Great Gatsby themed party of your own then a few tips may be in order. These tips will help you lift your champagne glass and throw an absolutely incredible party with all of your friends, no matter what the occasion.

Evenings are always the best time for a Great Gatsby party. They should begin in the evening and go on until all hours of the morning. Around 8PM is a good time to have guests begin to arrive, knowing that some will naturally be ‘fashionably late’.

Venue and Guests

When selecting a proper venue for your party your budget is always a huge consideration. So is your guest list. The weather will be a huge factor as well.great gatsby theme party

The best venues will offer both indoor and outdoor space, with plenty of room for various activities and entertainment. Parties with enough space for guests to flow freely are much more comfortable and enjoyable.

It can get really stuffy with a lot of people all cramped together with hardly enough room to walk around. The rooms and outside areas must be more than enough to hold all your guests comfortably.

People should be able to move about unhindered without bumping the other guests in passing. If your guest list is a short one then a home party may be possible. However, anything over 50 calls for renting a venue that gives you more space.


Your invitations need to be sent out 6 to 8 weeks prior to your party date. They cannot be sent out too early.

A Great Gatsby party requires themed outfits and costumes so your guests will need plenty of time to decide on what to wear and where to get it. Give all your guests the time they need to RSVP and prepare for the occasion.

Everybody loves an invitation that carries a great look and feel. The artwork is important. You want a Great Gatsby invitation to reflect elegance, style, and class. It’s the same even if your invitations are digital. They should reflect the mood and theme of the evening.


One easy way to get your theme and decorations right is to simply watch the movie, or watch it again if you already have.

Do what Mr. Gatsby did for his party. It is fun to watch how things unfold in the movie but for you there are going to be little nuisances like short time-lines, setting the scene at the venue, and a tight budget.


roaring twenties theme partyOne of the most crucial aspects of your Great Gatsby theme will be the music.

You want something people get up and move to. That could mean plugging in your iPod to play your favorites from the Gatsby playlist (jazz and classical) or simply playing the Great Gatsby soundtrack from the movie.

As long as the music is from the 1920’s it will be fine, whether from your iPod or a live band. Your guests just want to sip champagne and ‘shake their groove thing’ out on the dance floor.

If you really want to excite your guests and you have a large guest list, consider hiring yourself a casino party company. They can bring in gambling tables to thrill your guest and give it even more of a 1920’s feel.

Plan Your Menu

When it comes to food you can serve small finger-foods. All you need are little small snacks to nibble between sips of champagne and dancing. These will be more than adequate for this type of party.

Good luck on planning your Great Gatsby Themed Party.
