With a dash of Prohibition-era glamor, a sprinkle of gangland intrigue,and a whole lot of tweed and flat caps, you can create an unforgettable Peaky Blinders-themed celebration that will have your guests clamoring for more.
Setting the Scene
Transform your venue into a Shelby Company Limited hangout by opting for a dimly lit, industrial-chic space. Exposed brick walls, vintage furniture, and flickering candlelight will set the mood for a night of clandestine gatherings and high-stakes dealings.
Drape the walls with black and white bunting, and scatter vintage posters of Birmingham landmarks and Peaky Blinders characters throughout the space.
For a touch of authenticity, incorporate props like antique whiskey bottles, weathered suitcases, and stacks of newspapers.
Peaky Blinders Attire
Encourage your guests to embrace the sartorial elegance of the Peaky Blinders by adopting the signature style of the Shelby Company.
For men, a three-piece suit in a dark, muted tone, a flat cap, and a pocket watch are essential. Ladies can opt for flapper dresses, feather boas, and pearls to channel the glamour of the era.
Peaky Blinders-Inspired Cuisine
No Peaky Blinders gathering would be complete without a hearty spread of food and drinks. Set up a buffet with an array of British classics, such as bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie, and fish and chips.
