Recently, we were asked to participate in a fall
themed 1700’s masquerade! Wow, what a party. We decided to help with
the decorations for this party. I really wanted to come up with
something that symbolized fall but still brought in the
bright colors that are associated with a masquerade.
I started surfing the web for inspiration and I came across Martha Stewarts fall centerpiece for weddings here:
I wanted to tweak this idea a little bit so that it
fit our theme better. I ended up buying different pieces of wheat and
grass, flower wire instead of flower tape, a pretty purple silk ribbon,
and some feathers. Instead of making the
centerpiece full and round I made it flat and wrapped it like a flower
bouquet. I ended up hot gluing each section of wheat together so that
it would be easy to transport and sturdy on the table. I put the
feathers in the front of the piece to add a fun splash
of color and to really bring in the masquerade theme.
Also, I wanted to have a few other things on the
table so we spray painted some small pine cones purple, spray painted
some fake pears gold, and we lighted painted pumpkins with a light gold
acrylic paint. Below are some pictures of how
it turned out. I was quiet pleased with the project and thought that
it made for some fun and funky fall décor.
Tell us what you think!
