How to Throw Your Very Own Peaky Blinders Party!
By order of Party On!
Who doesn’t want to party like it’s 1920s industrialised Birmingham?
OK, when we put it like that, it doesn’t sound particularly appealing!
But when you think of it as partying like the Peaky Blinders (when they become rich and successful, obviously!), it suddenly becomes a whole lot more glamorous…
And, let’s face it, whatever your opinions on the notorious murdering gangster family, they’re always looking fresh!
So check out our straightforward and inexpensive ways of throwing your very own Peaky Party!
As party themes go, this is a real Blinder (not sorry!)
Alright, lads, this is a respectable event and we will behave accordingly.
Peaky Blinders Themed Party
Get the party off to a blinding start (sorry, the last one, we promise!), with some Peaky Blinders themed invites.
I don’t pay for my suits. My suits are on the house or the house burns down.
To get the authentic Shelby ensemble could set you back a fair old whack, but copying the hairstyles, donning smart suits and wearing a trademark Blinders’ hat (minus the razor blade sewn on the inside), you’ll be looking fit for a day at the races in no time.
- Tweed Suits
- Matching Waistcoats
- Penny Collar Shirts
- Tie Clips
- Pocket Watches
The 1920s was a glamorous time as the fashionable ‘Flappers’ burst on to the scene.
Polly, Ada, Grace and Posh May are all elegant examples of the glitzy style which came to prominence!
- Slip Dress
- Feather Scarves
- Cigarette Holder
- Elbow-Length Gloves
- Silver Jewellery
This is where you can get really creative.
Whether you’re going for a posh ballroom, the beer-soaked floors of the Garrison or day at the races vibe is up to you, the outfits on their own are a strong enough effort if you wanted, but the little extras elevate it further.
Party On Top Tip: Seen as the Blinders’ loved a flutter (or at least encouraged it), why not deck your venue out like a casino so you can all have a friendly game of Blackjack or roulette in your flash attire!
The Shelbys loved their whiskey, they were partial to a beer, Tommy started making his own gin, when they had a bit more money, they were more than partial to a glass of champagne – so you’re well and truly spoilt for choice for your drinks menu.
Why not throw some retro cocktails into the mix?
