HOW TO HOST A JAW DROPPING MOULIN ROUGE PARTY IN 20 EASY STEPS
Greetings. Today I’m going to show you how to host a jaw dropping Moulin Rouge Party in 20 easy steps. Having hosted his own wildly successful Speakeasy Party for two years running, my son Nathan decided to change it up this year in favor of an exotic, French inspired Moulin Rouge Party with a twist. His would be a Moulin “Bleu” Party in honor of his company’s signature color, “blue”.
So join me in his Old Town Alexandria, Virginia offices for an insider’s look at the best party ever hosted for Capitol Hill movers and shakers.
Here is how it’s done…
Send out a tantalizing “Save The Date” followed by an enticing “Invitation.” Bill it as an epic event not to be missed by the most infamous of Parisian bourgeoisie.
Light up the night fantastic. Mood lighting gets everyone in the spirit of the “Beautiful Age” of Le Belle Époque.
Choose a venue reminiscent of the lively Montmartre Quarter of Paris for your recreation of the most famous cabaret in the world.
Be sure to dress for the occasion. Your finest haute couture featuring feathers & fringe, rhinestones and sequins suggested.
You’re the host so go ahead, be the King of France for a night. Guests will toast to your success.
What’s a Moulin Rouge party without mood music? Hire yourself a dashing DJ to spin catchy cabaret tunes.
Le Creux, Le Trough, Le Watering Hole, Le Bar, call it what you wish, just keep it flowing at a self-service bar.
No self respecting Parisian nightclub would be complete without a specialty drink bar. Sidecar anyone? It’s the drink crafted from bourbon, lemon juice & cointreau that was made famous by the Ritz Hotel in gay Paris.
Or, how about a French 75. This sparkling concoction is made with gin, lemon juice & simple syrup that is crowned with a splash of champagne.
Ignite the spirit of joie de vivre with the sweet sound of glasses tinkling and corks popping at a Champagne Fountain. Feathers & fine champagne make bubbly bar fellows.
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder. Need I say more? Absinthe served in a lovely dispenser makes it even more tantalizing.
Don’t get caught without Can-Can Cocktail Napkins.
Titillate the taste buds of your guests with authentic French gastronomy. What could be more fitting than a Station de Crépe?
A buffet of French finger foods is also quite fitting.
A captivating Casino de Paris will certainly catapult your reputation as a host extraordinaire! Especially if your pet panda plays along.
Have your guests strike a pretty pose with your pet panda in a Photo Booth. Making memories the Moulin Rouge way.
It’s not 1889 anymore so go ahead, encourage your guests to engage in Social Media by sharing their photos! Sweeten the pot with promises of premium libations. Dom Perignon anyone?
In the fashion of the most glamourous Montmartre Cabaret, hire a high stepping burlesque dancer to perform La Revue du Moulin Rouge. Full of mystery and mystique, your guests will be captivated by her flirtatious fan dance. And Toulouse-Lautrec would be proud.
Hire a Fabric Aerialist. Your guests will raise the roof for the beauty and grace of Le Aerialist. Her tricks as she twirls her way around the room will have your guests saying, “How did she ever learn to do…that!?!”
It’s not for the faint of heart but trust me, your guests won’t want to look away for a minute if you hire Tyler Fryer as your Sword Swallower. Down the hatch…
And things will really heat up when Fyre performs his fire breathing feats. I wasn’t kidding when I told you I was going to show you how to host a jaw dropping Moulin Rouge party in 20 easy steps!
