One theme that has been very popular this year is "The Gatsby." Yes, the Roaring Twenties are back and bigger with the help from the new Gatsby movie from this past spring. The Gatsby party feel includes tons of glitz, glamour and classic decadence touches and is the perfect end of summer party idea. After all Mr. Gatsby was known for his crazy summer night parties! To help you create your own Gatsby Gathering I have put together a few ideas that are guaranteed to turn some heads. 
Party Decorations
Since this is the time of glitz and glam go all out with your glitter and gold. From metallic table cloths, glittered candle sticks and gold rimmed table settings nothing is considered gaudy with this party theme. Adding tons of extra candles (the battery ones work great if outdoors) along with fake jeweled stones will help in adding extra sparkle and glow to your decoration selections.
Party Music
The Gatsby story takes place during the rein of the Jazz Age. So, for your party you will want to go hunting for some great jazz tunes to get your guests swinging out on the dance floor. This could include classics from Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington as well as tunes from over the past century. 
Food and Drinks
Don't worry, even though this theme was during the age of prohibition you don't have to setup your own speakeasies at your party. Just remember every great Gatsby party begins and ends with champagne!
Dress Code
What's a 1920's Gatsby party without a dress code? You don't have to go all out with the men in tuxes and the girls in flapper dresses but do encourage your guests to get into the 20's spirit. Women can wear lots of pearls, sequins and feathers and the men can wear fun shoes, ties and hats with slicked back hair. You can also give a prize to the most authentic dressed guests to spur a little competition.
