You could have Flapper-ish jewelry (something cheap like this: http://www.candyapplecostumes.com/ru685-60.html ) for guests to wear, hang them over the chairs or tables or something.

Lemon cake is something they serve in the book, so there’s a dessert idea.

Serve the drinks in martini glasses, they can be cheap plastic ones, it’ll still look cute and be fun for a shower.


Will the shower be in someone’s home, or a restaurant or something?

@Isilme:  Hmm that’s a toughy. Most of the things brought up on Google is about the fashion (flapper dresses, Zoot Suits, etc), and old glam hollywood. Maybe you could do something like that? Big feather fan decorations with fake pearls, old film reels and anything that may have an old hollywood feel?

Julies gave you a lot of good links! I think I’d get some cheap glass vases and etching compound and do geometic/art deco patterns on them. Fill them with feathers and/or fake pearls. There’s also fake diamonds being sold at Joann’s in the wedding section, so that could be cute. I’d most likely stick with gold, black & white and try to make things look lush and opulent.

I’ve seen people do “headband stations” at babyshowers- basically have stretch lace & lots of flowers/gems to glue on. You could do an adult version of that.
