“I like large parties. They’re so intimate.” — The Great Gatsby
Next week, after an early screening of the highly anticipated The Great Gatsby, we’re hosting a Junior Board after party Gatsby would love; full of champagne, cocktails, finger foods and of course dancing at the PUBLIC Hotel. Just looking at photos from this iconic hotel, it’s easy to get into the Roaring 20s mindset. And we’ll kick it up a notch by having partygoers dress in their favorite Gatsby attire (read pearls, red lips, cigarellas).
Aside from loving the book, I’ve been pumped for this film. Even Maggie, the not-so-movie-goer said, “Even I’m excited for this screening!” With a visual-spectacle director like Baz Luhrmann, it’s sure to be a treat. But I’m most excited for the music. The trailer alone features a handful of songs that I wish ran their full length (and it seems a new trailer is coming out every week).
Florence + the Machine’s song for the movie is my current go-to.
