For my 30th birthday I decided to rent a historic mansion (a la Jay Gatsby) in the Litchfield area of Connecticut. The party was a throwback to my home town (Great Neck, NY) as my friends and I were always fans of The Great Gatsby and proud to live in West Egg. We rented the house for an October weekend in 2012 and Saturday night had a Gatsby-themed affair. We had top-of-the-line everything from the catering and bars to string quartet and 1920's themed DJ. It was a party we will never forget. Ironically, we didn't know about the movie coming out when we first starting the party planning in 2011.
