When you have clients that want their Gatsby-Styled celebration held outdoors, you look toward traditional options for tents that suit the occasion. For both a wedding and a corporate holiday party, we utilized a newer trend in tents, called The Sailcloth.
This style of tent has been long popular along the Long Island shores as well as in New England. Its hardwood center and side poles offer a timeless look that has survived almost a century in its popularity.
Still popular now, here are some glimpses of styling that is certainly 1920s in origin:
|Gold Chiavari Chairs with Black Cushions were used first for the ceremony and then for the reception.|
|A combination of black linen, silver chargers, gold napkins and silver flatware adorned the guest tables where sequinced gold runners set the glamourous tone for the event.|
The sweetheart table featured one of our vintage lace overlays with whimsical plates, chargers and antique candlelabras.
|Add some charming antique lounge furnishings and you have a comfortable sitting area!|
|The groom had a fancy for bourbon. So we created a whiskey bar complete with a variety of spirits and cigars.|
|Deviled Eggs had their hey-day in the Twenties. We offered a variety of flavors hand-passed.|
|A small traditional wedding cake was flanked with custom designed cookies.|
|One of our most popular 1920s stations is a vertical Shrimp Cocktail Bar where guests have the option to add different sauces and acruments to extra large shrimp on our squatty champagne glasses.|
Another Gatsby party version was for a corporate holiday party for 150. Decor was similar but there was a touch of red in the table settings.
|We featured four different centerpiece options that ranged between tall gold single candlelabras to cylinders with feathers to gold stands with red hurricanes, and five stem candlelabras.|
|Part of the theme was masquerade. Guests were offered decorative masks to wear during the event.|
