1920's Gatsby Glam Bring some Great Gatsby Glam to your next event by having a roaring good time with a 1920's party theme. The 1920's was all about Jazz, loud music, lots of illegal drinking and organised crime.  Prohibition was over and so people were anxious to get out on the town again to have a great time. A great way to theme your party is to re-create the famous Gatsby Mansion parties with lot's of white, silver and champagne.  Female guests will have a ball dressing up in flapper dresses with gorgeous headbands, lot's of pearls and faux fur shoulder wraps and men will look smart in their tuxedo.
