Party favors act as a memento of a celebration for guests. For a Mardi Gras or Masquerade party idea, combine mask favors and the centerpiece for a festive and impressive decoration. This whimsical Mardi Gras centerpiece uses glittery floral sprays and accents in purple, green and gold colors.
(1) Dry Floral Foam
(8) Metallic Gold Domino Stick Masks - enough for your guests
All of the centerpiece supplies can be purchased at www.mardigrasoutlet.com.
This will cost about $43 total if you use 8 masks, and not including Mardi Gras beads and doubloons. Many of these items have quantity discounts when you order over a certain number.
STEP 1: INSERT THE FLORAL FOAM
Using scissors, cut a piece of the dry floral foam brick that fits snugly inside the green centerpiece cylinder. You may want to place a weight underneath the foam brick to make the centerpiece more stable.
STEP 2: UNTIE THE PHILODENDRON SPRAY
The purple, green and gold Philodendron Leaf Bundle is held together by 2 brown wire ties. To separate the 3 leaf sprays, untwist the ties or cut the ties off.
STEP 3: ADD THE PHILODENDRON LEAVES
Trim the stick ends of the green and purple leaves by a few inches to lower and vary the height of each leaf. Insert the Philodendron Leaf sprays securely into the floral foam brick, all the way down. The gold leaf should be at the center and the green and purple leaves to either side.
STEP 4: ADD THE THREE SPIRAL CURLS SPRAYS
Again, trim the stick ends of two of the spiral curls sprays so that they are a few inches shorter. Secure and insert the three floral sprays into the foam brick so that they fill the spaces between the philodendron leaves.
STEP 5: ADD A FILLER
Gold Angel Grass Shred covers and hides the floral foam at the opening of the vase.
STEP 6: ADD MASKS
Insert the metallic gold domino stick masks into the vase opening. 8 masks were used here.
STEP 7: ADD THE FLEUR DE LIS ACCENT
Using hot glue, attach the Mardi Gras Fleur de Lis Ornament on the front and center of the green cylinder base. Trim the ornament tie off at the top.
You can also scatter Mardi Gras beads and Mardi Gras doubloons around and underneath the masquerade centerpiece for additional party favors and decoration.
