Pink Monkey Events fun tip of the day. Ok... I am still obsessed with Gatsby. I cannot help but to look at the style and level class and sophistication and wish I was an event planner back then. It looks like it was so much fun! Click on the link below for another Gatsby inspired event done by Pink Monkey Events. This event was done in 2010 so once again we were before the trend and setting the trend. This Gatsby inspired event was for a client’s Surprise 40th Birthday.
When the client came to us to think of something really special for her husband's surprise 40th I wanted something that reflected him. We had done his wedding a few months prior to this event to I got to know them very well. They are a couple who had great taste and style so I wanted to make this a bash he would not forget. For starters the invite was a silver ticket we added a black velvet ribbon and black feather with pearls to complete the look to give it a rich layered feel. On the back of the invite we sealed it with a “40” red wax stamp. We wanted to let the guests know this is not a costume party but yet a real deal Gatsby inspired shin dig. The venue is so important from the moment the guests arrive to when they exit. We searched for a venue that would be hip but yet carry out our theme and Avenue NYC just did that perfectly. All of the guests arrived in classy and amazing clothing from the Gatsby error. I have to say everyone look the part. The entire party was stunning. At the end of the night we had a black and red vintage trolly pick up the guests for the underground after party which was at the couples apartment. When they arrived to the after party our Pink Monkey staff dressed in retro black and white aprons complete with feather in hair to meet and greet the guests. No detail was left out for this 40th Birthday. Enjoy the slideshow and once again Jayd Gardina did an amazing job capturing the elegance and fun of this event. xoxo Pink Monkey
