Great Gatsby

Are you looking for something glamourous, fabulous and all out dazzling? No need to look any further, our first selection in our top three World Book Day event themes is Great Gatsby!

A firm favourite of ours, Great Gatsby is a spectacular choice of theme based around the classic book by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Get your best flappers and suits and be ready to jazz the night away because this Great Gatsby themed event from Eventologists will bring back the Roaring 20’s to the venue building of your choosing from the moment you and your guests set foot in it. Being a time popular for its bold design and architecture, our Art Deco themed decorations will incorporate modernist, cubist designs with dim mood colours and lighting to welcome and transport you to this long-gone era of partying in the jazzy underworld of a ‘speakeasy’.

To enhance your Great Gatsby themed event we offer a range of themed props such as:

• Glamorous pillars to adorn the establishment along with an amazing array of colours on the jazzy dance floor.

• Props such as Art Deco Palm Trees, black feather lampshades, crystal balls, candelabra and lit up chandeliers.

• Sophisticated black leather furniture and tables distributed in an elegant manner across the venue.

• To decorate and add a glam and classy touch to the evening, we offer metallic, fern and pearl table centres, as well as feather trees.

• Elegant drapes and curtains that go fantastically with the theming.

  • We have worked with Eventologists for the a couple of years now and can't fault them from start to finish the whole process is very seamless and the stuff they do is incredible! We have themed evenings and they always come up with some fab ideas that help to emphasise the theme and bring it to life. Our events have conference sessions in the venue during the day and we transform them for our awards in the evening and Eventologists always completely transform the space for the evening so that it feels like you're in a completely different space which makes it all feel so much more special and a real celebration and by the time morning arrives its all completely cleared as if by magic!

  • Rita has been an absolute pleasure to work with; she listened to our ideas and vision and then totally ran with it and created something better than we could have ever imagined! On the event day, Rita and her team swooped in and decorated our venue in record time. Rita and the team were professional and efficient. We look forward to working with Eventologists again next year!

  • We’ve used the services of Eventologists on numerous occasions and their expertise is priceless. Great service as always from Rita and her team who are always full of ideas and ways to make your event stand out. We’ve hired sets for Moulin Rouge, Great Gatsby, Hollywood and Glitz and Glam plus they created a wonderful set for a festival including tress with festoon and flags. Highly recommended and great to work with.
