Blend fresh florals, non-floral items and painted accessories to make elegant gold and burgundy centerpieces for a wedding, gala or formal dinner. Combine mirrored tiles and votives or tea lights to enhance the sparkle for a winter wedding or add flair to buffet tables. Create low, long centerpieces to encourage conversation or towering centerpieces for dramatic effect. Not just for Christmas and winter weddings, gold and burgundy centerpieces add an elegant touch to decor.
Burgundy roses, calla lilies and hydrangeas pair with classic poinsettias for elegant arrangements with a holiday touch. To avoid being overtly Christmas-focused or for a non-holiday arrangement, blend amaryllis and tulips with white blossoms tied in satiny gold ribbon. Use gold vessels or vase filler to add golden accents to a completely natural and floral centerpiece.
Spray painted artificial plants, sprays of gold pearls and burgundy jewels or crystals, feathers and glittery ting picks combine to create a stunning and opulent arrangement, particularly for head tables. Arrangements of single feathers or sprays surrounded by candles and table scatters contrast well with simple tablecloths and minimal decorations.
Mix flowers, feathers, sprays of pearls and tea lights or votives to create a multidimensional centerpiece that encompasses any holiday or event. Trails of satin ribbon peeking out between lilies and roses, complemented with ting picks and feather plumes, form stunning centerpieces that adapt to any type of event.
Pomanders and Candle Arrangements
Sprayed gold leaves and flowers arranged with burgundy blossoms to form pomanders, or kissing balls, make understated and elegant arrangements to be suspended over tables for a topsy-turvy look. Mounted high enough over tables to avoid any accidental fires, pairing poms with groups of tea lights and votives creates a layered effect without impeding conversation.
