A Spectacular Gatsby Themed Event: Unforgettable Glamour at The Star

On a captivating evening in October, The Star on the Gold Coast hosted a truly mesmerising Great Gatsby themed event. With the expertise of the esteemed creative team of Gold Coast event designers, Event Society, the event was planned by our industry colleagues, Urban Event Management.  This event surpassed all expectations, transporting guests back to the opulent era of the Roaring Twenties. Let us take you through the highlights of this extraordinary event, showcasing the meticulous attention to detail and the outstanding entertainment that made it an unforgettable experience.

From the moment guests arrived, they were immersed in the allure of the Gatsby era. A long black carpet lined with gold pedestals and faux floral arrangements led them into the ballroom, where an impressive gold entrance arch, adorned with thick gold tassels, awaited. Event Society’s careful event styling choices created an ambiance of grandeur and elegance.

The ballroom was transformed into a luxurious space with a mirrored seating chart, Bentwood chairs, and gold charger plates. Gatsby greenery centerpieces, featuring gold-sprayed leaves and orchid stems, adorned each table, while black napkins added a sophisticated touch. The stage design, crafted by the in-house AV team, featured a large LED screen with custom Gatsby-inspired graphics and a catwalk stage, ensuring that the entertainment was fully immersed in the audience’s experience.

To infuse the event with a theatrical edge, Event Society introduced two captivating ‘main characters’ Gatsby and Daisey, who weaved a storyline throughout the evening, reinforcing the event’s message. With a purpose-written script, these characters made certain moments of the event truly unforgettable, leaving a lasting impression on the guests.

The entertainment lineup included a high-energy opening number featuring flapper girls and gangster boys, bringing the spirit of the 1920s to life. A team of talented dancers took the stage, engaging with the audience on the dance floor and choreographed to a mix of classic 1920s jazz and iconic songs from the Gatsby movie soundtrack.

Adding to the enchantment, an exceptional big band led by renowned vocalist Lauren Street, an Australian Idol alumna, delivered a mix of cutting-edge and old-school classics in true Gatsby style. This talented ensemble, comprising contemporary live musicians, brought professionalism and top-tier talent to the event, ensuring an unforgettable experience for all.

This Gatsby themed event left guests spellbound. From the moment they walked through the striking gold entrance arch to witnessing the exceptional entertainment, every aspect of the event exuded elegance and glamour.
