Gatsby Garden Party

Thursday, July 7, 2016




On Sunday, June 26th, 2016 my friends and I attended our first Gatsby Garden Party hosted by the City of Toronto Historic Sites at the Spadina Museum.  

It's not secret that I adore anything and everything from the 1920's!!! I have already hosted two parties with this Jazz Age/Art Deco theme, and if I could, would have a whole lot more!  There's something about the fashion, literature and music that truly speaks to me from this period.  Oh and let's not forget all the feathers, pearls, and sparkles!!!  A girl can never have too many of those in her wardrobe...

   
Naturally, when I heard about this Great Gatsby event, I jumped at the chance to travel back in time!  

It's also always a special treat when I get to wear some of my wedding accessories! 

Here is a peek into our experience:


























I highly recommend attending with friends or family!  It's my understanding, that they host this special event every year in June.  

I loved everything about this Gatsby Party from the magical gardens, the architecture of the museum, how dressed up the guests were, and the idea of a Sunday picnic under the trees.

There is no better way to spend a weekend in the city of Toronto!




Thank you to my friends and their kids for humouring my Great Gatsby obsession!!!  It was a lot of fun dressing up, especially seeing the little ones in their 1920's outfits.  They were all so cute!

Have you tried a unique event in Toronto?  What suggestions do you have for us?  I am always looking for new opportunities to share with my son!




So we beat on,

Boats against the current,

Borne back ceaselessly into the 

PAST.
