Add Metallic Shine to Your Decor

Why not add a spark of brilliance to your table with a metallic centerpiece? The hottest trend is a touch of gold, silver, copper or other metallic colors in shiny, matte or glitter paired with a neutral base. Using just a pop of metallic will make your reception décor stand out without overwhelming it and will also create a setting that has a timeless, elegant feel.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Dress your tables with runners that incorporate metallic threads or a metallic design.  Glittery or sequined cloth will also look great. The perfect runner will pull your tablescape together and set off any other metals that you use in the centerpiece.

Candlelight brings a romantic glow to everything. Place metallic colored or votive candles in crystal holders or let metal candle holders shine. Polished silver is always in style but also consider vintage gold, mercury glass or almost anything in burnished metals that will match your color scheme. Depending on your theme, you can also add lanterns, mason jars, unique bottles, or metal bowls.

Floral stands, bowls and vases come in a variety of metallic sheens. Metallic accents such as painted feathers or metallic florals or clusters of berries can be added with wire. Painted or glittered fruit can also be stacked in bowls to jazz up your table.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to accessories.  Place cards can be written in metallic ink or placed in gold or silver frames. Three-dimensional glittered table numbers can easily be incorporated into the tablescape.  Gilded birds, statues, seashells, ornaments or a token that has special meaning for the bride and groom can be placed among the flowers and candles for a whimsical touch that will make your guests smile.
