You may not know the difference between a Foxtrot or a Charleston but there's no reason why your 1920s Gatsby themed party can't go without a swing. Making your party look right is so important.
Not only was this era one to remember, but by hosting a Gatsby party, you will make a night to remember.
Here's a few fun ways to incorporate this theme into any event that you may hold.
Let's get this party started

1920s Gatsby Decorations
In my opinion the best part of any party is decorating. This is where your creativity can flow.
No matter what your budget, you will still be able to get the effect and transform any venue into 1920's New York.
Look at these silhouettes of 1920's characters
. Placing these near the bar, either side of the food table or even to greet your guests at the entrance will certainly make you the 'bees knees' at your party.
Why not try making your own. Use black card and draw around a willing person to get your 1920s cut-outs.
When setting up your buffet table, why not hang paper tassel garlands
around the edge? An easy way to mirror the 'flapper girl costume'. And of course, bang on trend with this years party themes.
Fun gold, black and white tissue tassel garland
Your talking point and tasty treat will come in the form of these personalised chocolates
Dot around the place or pop into small organza bags
to give all your guests a small gift.
You can add any message to these personalised 1920s Gatsby chocolates
Like any good party, you need to capture these moments. Having a table full of props with a disposable camera (or your expansive one if you trust your guests) will be a great way to recreate your very own photo booth.
Gold plastic musical instruments, perfect for your home made photo booth.
Plastic musical instruments

Looking right is sooo important darling. If you are planning to perfect those moves and be a perfect '1920's flapper' girl, why not twirl up to your party dressed in the iconic flapper girl outfit
. Adding as many beads, feathers and sequins is sure to make you stand out from the rest.

Don't forget -
finish off your outfit by adding a smoky eye and a bright lipstick to be the true 'it-girl' that you are.
Men need to look good too, so why not get your inner gangster out!
Remember no gangster outfit is complete without all of the added extras. Black ties, a black gangster hat
will be sure to finish off any Al Capone look alike.
