Let’s talk about turning your kid’s party into a roaring good time with an Art Deco twist. I’m excited to share how you can infuse that classic 1920s flair into a kids’ bash right here in Miami. Picture it: glitzy decor, snazzy outfits, and a whole lot of fun. Here’s my take on throwing an Art Deco-inspired kids’ party that’s sure to be a hit:
Getting the Look
Since we’re in Miami, known for its incredible Art Deco architecture, why not host the party in a place that takes you back in time? An Art Deco hotel or a venue that oozes retro charm – imagine the iconic colors of Art Deco – bold blacks, shimmering golds, deep blues, and elegant whites. These colors will give your party that swanky, Gatsby-style edge. And don’t be shy to add in some jewel tones like rich emerald greens and sapphire blues for that extra touch of glamour.

Matching Food Yum
Now, let’s talk desserts – because what’s a party without them? Think about a cake that’s a masterpiece in itself. Geometric patterns, hints of gold leaf, and tiered designs that take you back in time. And oh, those cupcakes, cookies, and macarons? Make them shine in your chosen color palette.

Set up a photo booth with feathers, pearls, and vintage-style hats. Let the kids channel their inner Gatsby for some seriously stylish snapshots. Or how about a dance troupe teaching the kids the Charleston or some groovy 1920s dance moves? And let’s not forget a magician to bring in that touch of mystery and excitement – just like the golden age of entertainment. Set up a craft station with metallic paints, stencils with cool geometric designs, and canvases. Let them create their own mini Art Deco-inspired masterpieces. Remember musical chairs? Let’s give it a jazzy makeover with swing and jazz tunes. Or how about an “Art Deco Treasure Hunt”? Hide shiny trinkets and costume jewelry around – the kids will love discovering these gems. And Yombu can help with pro magicians and party games coordinators, you know!
Art Deco Party Favors
Don’t let the fun end when the party does. Send the little ones home with party favors that scream Art Deco chic. Think mini perfume bottles, pocket mirrors with geometric designs, or even vintage-style bookmarks. These treats are all about the wow factor.
So, there you have it – my take on an Art Deco-inspired kids’ party that’s got Miami’s energy and 1920s glamour all rolled into one. It’s time to get creative, have a blast, and throw a party that’ll make you the coolest parent on the block. Let’s get that Gatsby party started.
