There was a lot of lights to make a Christmas tree of Gatsby's garden. There was a lot of food like spiced backed hams crowded against salads of harlequin designs and pastry pigs and turkeys with a dark golden color.
By seven o'clock the orchestra arrived. There were oboes,trombones, saxophones, viols,cornets, piccolos, and low and high drums.
As Nick is in the party, he looks for Gatsby but when he asks people where he is, they just look at him in a weird way and just tell him that they don't know where he is.
