This dazzling GREAT GATSBY THEMED THIRTIETH BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Karen Reeves of Caking It Up.

What a fabulous event! I love all of the shimmering gold in it; it’s so ritzy and fun! I also love the darling dessert ideas! From the beautiful cake to the awesome black and gold cookies! This party is so fun and would work perfectly for a dinner party or birthday party!

My favorite Great Gatsby party ideas and elements from this gorgeous event are:

  • The fabulous glitter gold cake pops with gold and black tips
  • The awesome black and gold cookies
  • The amazing cake
  • The cute gold circle backdrop streamers/garland
  • The cute brooch cupcake toppers
  • The cute dessert cups topped with macarons
  • and MORE! 

This is what Karen said about planning/styling this party- “This extravagant birthday party was centred around the 1920’s Great Gatsby Era and was created for a 30th birthday party. The setup was based around the theme and the colour scheme of black, white and gold. The cake, designed and created by Caking It Up, reflected the Art Deco style and featured elements such as pearls, brooches, patterns and textures. It was a great centrepiece to complement the theme of the party. All desserts were also created by Caking It Up and tied in nicely with the cake to create this decadent dessert table. I loved incorporating the use of metallic gold to add that extra opulence and to make the table shine”.

    Hi! I would like to know what the black & gold is, that was used on the tips of the gold cake pops. Is it edible & food safe?
