This is the first thing I think of when I think of the parties at Gatsby’s. The tall vase with the large feathers coming out of the top. This is not a difficult Great Gatsby centerpiece idea to make.

I love how this looks and you don’t need any helium to fill the balloons. The only thing is that this will take sometime to hang. But as you can see it is worth it.
