Moulin Rouge Party

Plan a Moulin Rouge party for a crowd that is risqué and has lots of energy. Have some fun with the Moulin Rouge party theme and hire a unique entertainer for the evening. Purchase and design decorations that embody Paris and the Moulin Rouge cabaret setting. Finally, serve a cake at the Moulin Rouge theme party that is representative of either the trademark red windmill on the roof of the Moulin Rouge or the 2001 motion picture movie of the same name.


Here are some additional Moulin Rouge party ideas:

  • Decorations: Purchase or create Moulin Rouge party decorations that resemble Paris and the Moulin Rouge atmosphere. Make a red windmill and hang it on a mailbox, lamppost or the front door. Purchase posters from the 2001 motion picture Moulin Rouge, and hang them on walls. Hang up white Christmas lights and dim the main lights to create a romantic atmosphere. Decorate the room with the colors red, black and gold, to resemble the interior of the Moulin Rouge. Cover the tables with black tablecloths and red table skirts. Line the edges of the tables with black feathered boas. Set the tables with white plates, gold cups and black napkins.
  • Cake: Serve a Moulin Rouge themed cake at the party that contains a picture of the Moulin Rouge. Print out a picture of the Moulin Rouge and bring it to your local bakery. Order a rectangular shaped cake and ask the bakery to create a sugar printout of the picture to place on the top of the cake. Ask the bakery to put a red frosting border around the edges of the cake.
  • Entertainment: Hire a professional dancer to perform at the event. Request the inclusion of classic can-can moves like high kicks and splits. For more of a cabaret feel, request an act with comedy, song, dance and theatre. Play the Moulin Rouge soundtrack throughout the course of the party.
Consider additional ideas for the party, such as Moulin Rouge themed party costumes. Ask each guest to dress in Moulin Rouge attire on the invitations. Pass out Moulin Rouge party props throughout the event such as black top hats and gloves and get ready to let loose!
