1930s Glamour

Some of the most illumining ideas for creating vintage-style decor include mirrored surfaces and the glamour of the 1930s.

Although costly, mercury glass mirrors and candlesticks in a candle-lit setting can provide a moonlit glow to any venue. An instant, affordable way to get this look is with Krylon's Looking Glass. Simply spray 5-6 coats on any glass surface. From the interior of an old glass jar to the backside of a pane of glass, you can achieve stunning looks in no time. Group a few sprayed items together in a small cluster, add small greenery or flowers for an eye-catching centerpiece.

I'm also in love with the idea of including a champagne tower and having one of your caterer's dressed in a vintage tuxedo making sure the tower flows all evening. Martha Stewart Weddings has a handy how-to to make your very own champagne tower.
