For the decorations we chose to use black table clothes with quotes written in gold. The quotes used are, "And I like large parties. They're so intimate. At small parties there isn't any privacy"; "Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope"; "A little party never killed nobody"; and "The best thing a girl can be is a beautiful little fool." The quotes used describe the party and the attitudes of the people ion them. The black tablecloths symbolize the formal and elegant parties and the gold represents wealth. The center pieces are vases with feathers, daisies, and pearls in them. The white feathers were very common decorations in the 20s at parties. The white symbolizes innocence like Daisy, but it's ironic because parties in the 20s are anything but innocent. The bottom of the vases are filled with pearls because many women wore pearls in the 1920s. The green lantern represents the green light in the story, which is a sign of Gatsby's hope. The lights around the room symbolize the life of the party. The party favors are gold coins, which represent wealth and money, and bow ties which were worn to formal events.
