So hopefully you have already seen The Great Gatsby (maybe you have seen it 17 times already...), and if you haven't, watch the clip above. Jay Gatsby's parties were over the top extravagant. Throwing a party that has the same lavish feel is achievable, no matter what your budget or what the occasion is. It's all about the decorations.
After you watching this clip of the movie, some decorating themes become very clear. The colors used are mainly black, white, gold, silver, and champagne. Some of the decorations used are balloons, tinsel, streamers, flowers, confetti, lights, feathers, and basically anything shiny, sparkly, metallic, and luxurious.
"At least once a fortnight a corps of caterers came down with several hundred feet of canvas and enough colored lights to make a Christmas tree of Gatsby’s enormous garden."
