Gee, even I am not old enough to remember the roaring twenties. I do know that the most popular dance was the Charleston. good luck.

What comes to mind is Flappers wearing dresses with fringe all down them. Head bands with feathers and sequins on them. Dramatic eye make up, guys wearing top hats and tails. Zoot Suits and gangsters.

Boa feathers draped around and flowing. Go on line and look up the roaring twentys there are tons of things out there.

Center pieces could be a Top hat with Flowers in it. Or little decorations with top hats and canes.

20's music is a must. Blacks and Silver can be used. Head bands and Feather's, boa's and that sort. Radio shows were big like red skelton, charlie mcarthy. Fred astair and gingr rodger. Charlie chaplin and the depression was also begining but thats not really anything to use.

Our school is having a 20's themed homecoming also, and for most of the decorations, we are projecting silent movies on the walls.try it out!

Good luck!
