The Great Gatsby - Garden Parties and Art

If or when I get married, I want to rent a northern California estate for the weekend and have a grand garden party wedding in the style of The Great Gatsby. Truly, this has nothing to do with the upcoming movie. I've wanted such a wedding for years. I've been obsessed with this motif ever since I first saw the derby scene in My Fair Lady with the intricate black and white costuming.

What does have to do with The Great Gatsby, though, is the above art print that I created one night while I was excitedly thinking about the movie. I'd been wanting to create a fun Art Nouveau piece for a bar area that I'm creating within my bookshelf, and this ended up being perfect! I loved it so much that I decided to put it up in my Etsy shop. Feel free to click through to see what other goodies I've created (usually in the wee hours of the morning when I just can't sleep).

Are you as in love with martinis and garden parties as I am?

  1. Oh I love this print! And I adore garden parties, too. Same with true blue tea parties :)
