Food is one of the most important parts of a party. Whether you are doing a dinner party where food is the main focus of the night, or you are doing a cocktail party where only hors d'oeuvres will be served, food is essential to making sure that the night goes smoothly. I get crazy about food. Eating is one of my favorite things in the whole world, and if I get hungry I get really cranky. This is true for many people, so if you want happy guests, make sure they are not hungry. Also, if a party has good food I will usually consider it a good party, so it is a good idea to make sure your guests are full of good food.
The ideal situation when hosting your Great Gatsby Party would be to have your affair catered. Not only is this how Jay Gatsby hosted his parties, but it will allow you to focus on other aspects of the party and ensures you won't be stuck in the kitchen while all your friends are drinking and dancing the night away. But, I completely understand that not all of us have the funds for catering as Mr. Gatsby did. So I scoured the internet to find a few dishes and menus that perfectly fit the theme, and are sure to leave happy, full bellies.
