World Party Day And The Parties That Mark Its Importance
Who says Sunday can’t be Funday? And what a better way to pay homage to that mantra then celebrate World Party Day? Bust out your ball gown, shimmy on an LBD, pop the champagne and cook the cocktail weenies (or caviar). Either way you party it is most likely nothing compared to these seven extravaganzas brought to you by the rich and famous. Babble.com compiled a list of the seven most epic parties around the world. We selected the 3 that we not only wish we could’ve attended but will get you in the mood to rock World Party Day.
The Royal Wedding
Because what fairytale doesn’t have a throne room turned nightclub for 650 guests and a live performance by Ellie Goulding and then and after party with a close 300 person clique, bacon sarnies, and a 3AM firework display to close out the night? The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge owe it all to the Queen who hosted the event in her humble abode…that also happens to be the Palace. And they all partied happily ever after!
Elton John’s Birthday Party
Keeping with the British we travel back to April 1997 when more than 500 people gather to celebrate the 50th birthday of music master Elton John. While his mum dressed as the Queen, the birthday boy was decked out in a Louis XIV costume with a wig so big he had to travel in a removal van to the party! Known for his love of blossoming designs amazing floral displays lined the venue, Boy George DJ’d, and the rest is royal history!
ALL of Studio 54’s Parties
If there was ANY place to be in the 1970s it was Studio 54 in New York City. Opening just off Broadway in April of 1977 owners Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager started what would live on the be partying spot for the history books. It was the place where Michael Jackson hung out with Woody Allen, and regulars included Calvin Klein, Truman Capote, Liza Minnelli, Andy Warhol, and Elizabeth Taylor. There was no VIP section since there was not a soul in the club who was not a celebrity. Essentially if there ever a place where World Party Day should be celebrated it would be here in mid 1970.
