any night’s a gatsby night

looking for a perfect date night in? look no further than a jazzed up, gatsby night.

i know most people think of gatsby as this huge party event, but you can also make it a low key night as well. considering the great gatsby is one of my favorite books of all time, this was a perfect way to creatively have a date night with my love.

so what did we do? well, i decided that we finally needed to watch the new version of the great gatsby since keith has never seen it. and with that decision, keith ended up surprising me with a bottle of champagne – the perfect drink to celebrate this low key gatsby night. so with our bubbly in hand, candles lit and a nicely prepared charcuterie board, we were ready to immerse ourselves into the world of gatsby. from the music to the storyline, i always fine myself enthralled with this movie – i think because even though it’s set in the 1920s, the issues are still relevant in today’s world. and i mean who wouldn’t have wanted to attend an actual jay gatsby party?!
