A vintage or old Hollywood wedding is romantic, sparkly, elegant and full of bling! The decor options are unlimited but let's concentrate on adding some bling to the centerpieces for your guest tables. Are you looking for something different? Maybe something that can be combined with other somethings to create a truly unique centerpiece? Or, maybe just accenting florals or some other centerpiece with bling items is more what you want. Let's break it down --
The Centerpiece of your Centerpiece
When planning unique, DIY centerpieces for an old Hollywood wedding, utilizing more than one item (odd numbers) to create your centerpiece is a great way to ensure its' uniqueness. You can also take a seemingly "normal" floral or candle holder and accent it with bling to give it a whole new look.
In order for the table decor to not end up looking like a lot of odds and ends or a hodge podge, it's best to choose one element that will be used on every table to create cohesion in the design. Using one main piece (alike for all guest tables) is one way to accomplish this.
So let's look at a few items that could act as the glue for your design -- the centerpiece of your centerpiece, if you will.
All three of the above candle holders have the "bling" factor that is imperative to an old Hollywood wedding -- height (11.75", 15.5" & 17.5" respectively), dripping crystals, reflective glass, and sparkling metal all give the impression of elegant bling.
Any one of these (or something similar) would be a perfect centerpiece for your centerpiece -- something you can build on.
Complementary Items to make a group
To keep the vintage or old Hollywood feel, the secondary items for your centerpiece could be vintage or in a vintage style. What items come to mind when you think vintage Hollywood?
- diamonds, crystals
- top hats
- black and white photos
Try combining some of these type items with your main centerpiece to create a truly unique centerpiece.
Accent with Bling
If you want to use florals, consider accenting the arrangements with dripping crystals, faux pearls or sparkling floral picks to add some drama to your centerpiece. Take an ordinary clear glass vase and accent it with bling ribbon so it sparkles in the ambient lighting. Sprinkle table gems around the base of your centerpiece to add some bling.
