The ultimate holiday party should be held in Gatsby-like indulgence and glamour: guests arriving fashionably late, then leisurely congregating poolside, carousing on the outskirts of the massive lawn, standing under those sparkling chandeliers and drinking from one of the many champagne fountains. And last but not least, a great Gatsby party should always be held in the evening, going on until the wee hours of the morning. That’s a Gatsby holiday party in a nutshell.

To have an ultimate holiday party of your own, copy exactly what Gatsby did for his grand parties. Go big, at home. Turn your home into the most dazzling holiday space imaginable by giving your home that Gatsby-esque vibe. By doing so, your home will be this year’s talk of the town, and also be deemed the place to go for next year’s ultimate holiday party.

Indoor palm trees and floral arrangements, preferably in a unified hue (like white, green, or pink), elevate any living room.

The venue for the ultimate holiday party should ideally include both indoor and outdoor spaces, which allow for separate kinds of entertainment. Perhaps, some sultry jazz is played outside and piano melodies inside? Inside/outside spaces also create an effortless flow for guests to come and go, and stay until the wee hours of the morning.

Fine wines and bubbly champagnes welcome the holidays, as well as your guests.

A burning fireplace, glass-enclosed walls and elevated ceilings make room for some great conversations.

Large textured accents (such as this lampshade, throw across the bed, floral arrangement on the side table) make for the perfect guest room.

Strings of crystal glass that hang from the ceiling add to the holiday festivities.
