“The Great Gatsby” Prom at Fernbank Museum
Our team was thrilled to design and produce a “Great Gatsby” themed Prom this Spring. This theme was very popular in 2013. Creating an atmosphere that was true to the lavish Gatsby’s vibe, yet fresh and interesting was a welcome challenge for EEP Events!
Fernbank Museum of Natural History was an excellent venue choice, with it’s mansion like grandeur and three story atrium.
After gathering inspiration from the movie and the style of Gatsby’s time period, we decided to make the dance floor the focal point of the party and incorporate a series of suspended mirror balls, mimicking the suspended spheres that are always present at Gatsby’s parties. In order to hang the mirror balls and light the room effectively, a truss structure measuring thirty feet by thirty feet was erected in the center of the space. Intelligent lights, uplighting and Gatsby inspired gobos completed this look.
We also used plenty of Gatsby’s signature gold tinsel, seen everywhere in the movie, paired with white and gold paper lanterns.
The Cafe was used for desserts and seating. We continued the gold, black and white color palette and worked with pearls and black ostrich plumes in the centerpieces to add drama and texture to the tablecapes.
In both the Cafe and the Great Hall, we used gold sequined linens for sparkle, inspired by this scene in the movie:
The students’ biggest priority was the dance party, and our own DJ Josh kept the dance floor packed until the very last moment with custom mixes played throughout the night.
