Start by Choosing a Sparkler Size
Determining what size sparklers you want to use will be the backbone of your entire design. Every other aspect is dependent on this choice, so it needs to be the top priority. For instance, if you choose the 10 or 20 inch variety, it opens up the most possibilities. However, if you want really long sparklers that are 36 inches tall, there are fewer ways to display them. Typically, I suggest going with shorter versions for sparkler centerpieces for this very reason. However, you can make it work no matter what length you choose; but without knowing you can’t move onto the next phase of design.
Choosing a Vessel
The next phase of your design process should be choosing the vessel that will contain your centerpiece. Typically, couples choose from classic items like vases, metal buckets, and even Mason jars. This will lay the groundwork for the rest of your design, so it’s important that you give it some thought and get it right. Remember, the length of sparklers that you choose should help determine how tall and wide the vessel needs to be. Additionally, if you are sticking with an over-arching theme, consider something that fits into that mentality. Also, don’t forget that you’ll need some decorative gravel or glass beads to add weight to the bottom of your chalices. Once you’ve made your decision, you can begin crafting the rest of the look.
Add in a Few Extras
Of course, adding a few embellishments to the mix is crucial for a stunning layout. Items like flowers, baby’s breath, or even tinsel can take the visual effect to new heights. Moreover, you’ll need decorative gravel or glass beads to help keep everything in place. However, adding a few other decorative items to the mix will make the entire presentation better.
Beautifying the Sparklers
Additionally, there are several simple ways to improve the overall look of the sparklers contained in your centerpieces. One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to accomplish this is by adding sparkler tags to each one. There are several free templates out there, or you can buy them premade on our website. Optionally, you can go with something more generic like tying ribbons on each stick for a similar effect. Lastly, if you are extremely bold, you can spray paint them to match your wedding colors. By spending a little time sprucing things up, your entire design will benefit greatly.
Decorating the Surrounding Area
Placing a centerpiece on each table is a great start to your overall decorating plans, but you need to consider the area surrounding them as well. Typically, people will spread a variety of candy options around them as a nice little treat for their guests. However, you can also add some confetti or strips of ribbon to enhance the design further. Moreover, items like seed packets and balloons can be a great wedding favor to add to the mix. No matter what you choose, just remember that the entire table is important; not just the main attraction.
