There's no better time than a Bachelorette to go all out with your outfit, so go for a full-on flapper dress, like this one from Unique Vintage, or rent one from your local costume shop! 

If you're going for a more low key look, any evening or party dress will fit the theme. If it's a casual affair, these t-shirts follow the Gatsby theme with a fun 1920s twist!

Food & Drink

Just because it was the prohibition in the 1920s doesn't mean your party has to go alcohol-free! Why not try some vintage cocktails, like a Mint Julep or Gin Fiz, or keep it classy with champagne or prosecco. Top your drinks off with these gold Bachelorette straws to tie into the colour scheme!

Why not try this easy recipe for a Mint Julep from


  • 1/4 oz Simple syrup
  • 8 Mint leaves
  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • Garnish: Bitters
  • Garnish: Mint sprig


  • In a Julep cup or rocks glass, lightly muddle the mint and syrup.
  • Add the bourbon and pack tightly with crushed ice.
  • Stir until the cup is frosted on the outside.
  • Top with more crushed ice to form an ice dome and garnish with a mint sprig and few optional drops of bitters.

Serve bite-size appetizers to allow your guests to try everything - ideas could include deviled eggs, prawn cocktail, or a cheese and charcuterie board! 


Set the atmosphere with a 1920s jazz playlist to get the party started - there are plenty already created on Spotify, or you could make you own!

Set up a 1920s themed photo booth with these props from Etsy to get some insta-ready pics and ensure people have a memento of the night!


Decorate your space with black and gold for a Great Gatsby feel. Hang up gold fringe curtains to transform any area - these are affordable and make a great backdrop for any pictures you want to take. Scatter black and gold balloons across the floor, or fill them with helium so they float up to the ceilings! If you're having an open bar, set up this Gatsby themed sign to complete your 1920s theme.

To celebrate your bride, why not hang up this gold Bachelorette banner that can be customised to any name? Sprinkle this ring confetti across any surface to add some glitz!
