Masquerade centrepiece ideas usually involve masks and/or feathers as the main decorative elements. Though the main materials may remain the same, there are many different ways you can combine them to suit your particular party theme. Masquerade balls are all about fantasy, indulgence and amusement. The best centrepieces reflect this sense of whimsy, regardless of the exact style.
Balloon Centerpiece Idea
Fill some wineglass-and-mask-patterned balloons with helium and tie each one with a piece of long ribbon for a floating masquerade centrepiece. Pull the balloons together into a cluster, and tie the bottom of the ribbons to a heavy object hidden in a gold vase. Add curled strands of ribbon and large confetti to the vase until it is overflowing and spills onto the table.
Classic Centerpiece Ideas
Think about your party colours when you create a classic masquerade centrepiece. Choose three decorated masks with long, ribbon-wrapped handles. Make sure each mask has a handle with a slightly different height. Place the masquerade ball masks in a metallic vase, and add some long fluffy, colourful feathers. You can also use a single, elaborate mask set in a vase with long peacock feathers and fluffy white feathers.
Use a purple, green, yellow, silver and gold masquerade ball mask with a long handle to create a classic masquerade centrepiece for a Mardi Gras celebration. Place the mask handle in a gold vase. Add green feathers, purple flowers, yellow flowers and silver bead sprays to the vase to create a tall arrangement that spreads outward slightly at the top.
Elegant Centerpiece Idea
Use red roses to create a masquerade centrepiece with an elegant touch. Place a single long-stemmed red rose in a fancy crystal-clear vase. Place a red, white and black masquerade ball mask at the base of the vase. Scatter the petals from a second red rose around the base of the vase and place a red, rose-shaped votive candle in a clear candleholder on each side.
Feather Centerpiece Idea
Use long, full white-and-black feathers to create a masquerade centrepiece without masks. Lightly coat the feathers with rainbow-glitter spray. Arrange the feathers in a fan shape, and slide the stems into a vase filled with a mixture of clear decorative stones and large, round, rainbow-coloured confetti. Place the vase in the centre of the table and scatter a little confetti around the base.
Low-Cost Centerpiece Idea
Create a low-cost masquerade centrepiece by making your own decorative masks. Buy a package of gold half masks that cover the eye area. Use ribbon, glue, glitter paint and permanent markers to decorate each masquerade ball mask. Evenly space stacks of three to five masks down the centre of the table. You can also glue a few masks to ribbon-wrapped sticks to create handles you can then cluster into a "bouquet" in a vase.
