The White Rose Gala NYE party at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center couldn’t have been more Fitzgerald, complete with 1920′s music, decorations, and guests dressed head-to-toe in their best flapper outfits proving Gatsby right that you can in fact repeat the past, at least for one night. The White Rose Gala was as enchanting and opulent as you could imagine a Gatsby party to be. The celebration consisted of three different themed rooms with different music allowing guests to float in and out of important decades throughout the 1900′s including 20′s big band music, 80′s music, and a vegas style mashup. The hotel transformed into a theatrical, classic elegance of art deco decor that left guests breathless as they ventured back in time ringing in the new year in the most sophisticated way. Whether it was swing dancing, flaunting off their extravagant outfits, or simply enjoying a glass of champagne while catching up with friends, everyone was in excellent spirits as 2013 came to an end.
