Create an Awards Party Centerpiece

Hosting an awards show get together will be even more lively with this golden floral centerpiece.

I love that the new year is filled with so many awards shows celebrating our favorite stars on film and television. On awards night, we invite friends over and I serve an assortment of finger foods and some fun cocktails. We also print up voting ballots for our guests. This way, everyone gets in the mood and cheers on their favorite picks. This year, I thought it would be fun to create a centerpiece for the table to add to the festivities.

A red rose arrangement features a golden statue on top.

Create An Award Arrangement

Set the mood for your next award show viewing party with this red carpet worthy centerpiece.

This centerpiece came together in about 30 minutes and was about $25 to make. I'll share a little tip with you, pick up beautiful roses like these at your local "Trader" grocery store. I liked the idea of the roses representing a red carpet.

With a sharp knife, cut a piece of floral foam to snugly fit into the bottom of your vase. Tuck that into the vase and then fill the vase halfway with water. Here, I added my vase to a gold box.

Roses are tightly tucked into the vase.

Next trim the roses and arrange them to fit tightly into the vase. Start on one edge and work your way across the vase. 

Then cut out the award silhouette ©A.M.P.A.S.® and trace it onto the back of the gold glitter cardstock. Flip over the silhouette and make one more tracing so that you have two mirror images of the silhouette. Cut the silhouettes out. Glue the floral pick or skewer between the silhouettes and then glue the silhouettes together. Set it aside to dry.

Add a bit more water to the roses if necessary. Then tuck the finished silhouette into the center of the arrangement and add it to the center of the table for guests to enjoy during the party.

A paper gold silhouette tops the roses.

To add a sense of festive abundance to the table, get creative with non-floral centerpieces that can be used for a holiday wedding. Classic silver ball ornaments add interest when piled high in a silver compote or displayed in apothecary and bell jars. Fill in any empty spaces with mercury glass votives, taper candlesticks, additional ornaments and oversized pinecones. Design by
