An Evening at Gatsby’s Manor!

December 2, 2016

Jay Gatsby would have been proud of the fabulous party thrown in honor of our amazing client’s 50th birthday celebration this fall.  It was a night of jazz, flappers, sequins and gin and it made for the perfect Gatsby soiree at Graylyn Estates.  Each room was transformed into a magical setting through the use of glamorous custom furniture, extravagant blooms and rich details, creating a night to remember for all.  Boisterous music filled the halls of Graylyn Estates as guests dined on delicious, period-inspired  treats while enjoying casino games and spontaneous performances of the Charleston.   A spirited parade of “When the Saints Go Marching In”  guided guests to the main ballroom where they were greeted with a 12 piece band and surrounded by walls of sparkling crystal draping and a custom balloon ceiling!  It made you feel as if you were dancing close to the clouds!   Confetti, libations and dancing made for the perfect ending to a night we will never forget!  We are so thankful for the amazing team of vendors who went above and beyond to bring our vision to life!  We hope you enjoy a few images from our friend, Richard Barlow Photography.
