I think black and white polka dots would be gorgeous~or damask!!!!!!
Either one would be very nice!!!!!!

I agree with the vivid color idea.

Fashions in those days consisted mostly of tailored classics. But accessories were colorful and very feminine, e.g. veiled hats, gloves, buckles, high heels, etc.
And big, bold flowers tucked in the hair, or on a collar, were also popular...or so I'm told. icon_cool.gif

Here's a link to some art deco cakes. They may have something that would be fitting.

I found this. Maybe it will give you some ideas. The one cake on here was so simple and elegant. I thought it would be pretty with the little bouquet of flowers on the other side of the page.
