Moulin Rouge Party Theme
The classic story of Moulin Rouge inspires many who are planning a party. Famous performers of the Moulin Rouge were Frank Sinatra, Josephine Baker, and Jane Avril.
Use red and black as color palettes for the party. Moulin Rouge backdrops are available online. Spread out a red carpet, hang red and black streamers, and inflate red and black balloons.
Wear red, elegant gowns with extravagant jewelry (real or faux). Add accessories, such as red and black boas, garters, feathered fans, sequined headbands, satin gloves, petticoats, or sashes. Corset tops with long beaded skirts are other elegant choices. Can-Can girl costumes can be purchases online or at a party store. Men should wear suits with bow ties, vests, top hats, and black leather shoes. Wear a handlebar moustache for a nice touch.
Rent or buy a neon Moulin Rouge sign. Decorate the space as if it was a turn of the century Parisian cabaret. Cabaret entertainment included an MC, female vocalists, and a live band. Hire these entertainers to recreate classic songs from the musical, such as "Diamond's Are a Girl's Best Friend." If this is not in the budget, simply play the Moulin Rouge soundtrack or sing Karaoke. Use a big screen to show the movie.
Enjoy a buffet of French delicacies with Champagne or wine.
The Moulin Rouge DVD and soundtrack made ideal party favors.
