Metallic + sparkle wedding decor ideas

April 16, 2012

Yep, nothing like a little metallic fabric confetti to get your Monday off to a sweet start. Whether you’re planning a bachelorette party with a touch of sparkle, your wedding needs an additional boost of pizazz, or you’re planning way too far in advance for New Year’s (anyone?), this shoot, styled by “prop mistress”, Ginny Branch will color you shiny!

Fab idea #1: Use glitter tape or just plain old glue and glitter to create mini frames around thick card stock escort cards with each of your guests’ names.

Fab idea #2: Can we get excited about the idea of a glittery cake? Yes, please. Bands of edible silver and gold make for a lively bite of shininess. And the cake stand? Make one yourself using a candlestick, a fancy plate, and some spray glue and glitter.

Fab idea #3: A pretty alternative to a traditional floral bouquet. Why not choose vintage millinery flowers and leaves for a shimmery stunner?! Then skip the bubble, rice, rose petal send-off for shredded metallic fabric confetti. In a word-magical. This is also a fun prop for guests to toss in a photobooth over and over.

We’re convinced these ideas are all easy enough to do on your own. Are you in?
