Decorating with Wine & Martini Vases: Tips for Keeping it Classy at Your Next Event

Wine and martini vases are a beautiful way to add personality to your next event. This category of glass vase provides many opportunities for customization. You can create something that’s outrageous and fun or go the other direction and build an arrangement that’s sophisticated and elegant. What can you do with glass wine and martini vases?

Create Centerpieces with Classic Style

Martini and wine glasses are a great way to add instant nostalgia to your celebration. When displayed the right way, they can conjure images of old Hollywood films and the beloved stars who made them shine. Try adding gemstones, pearls or even a tastefully placed feather boa to get started. Pour pearls (or beads with a pearl finish) inside the vase. Add variety by choosing 1 or 2 colored pearls and combine with white pearls. Glass pebbles or clear water gel beads are also a good way to go for a more refined look. 

Try a Water Display that Looks Like the Real Beverage

Martini and wine glasses are often associated with the beverages they are usually used to drink, so why not use that as inspiration for your display? Try setting up one, two or three vases with water that’s colored to look like your preferred beverage.

Red wine is a good choice because it has a very deep, distinctive color to it. Adding drops of food coloring or cake decorating gel can achieve the right tone in one of our wine glass vases. Then top with a floating candle and you have a gorgeous centerpiece that’s also memorable! Try arranging multiple vases of different heights using this method.

Grab Attention with Wild Colors

Martini glass vases are a great choice when you want to do something wild for a bachelorette party or birthday celebration. Whether someone’s getting hitched or it’s their 21st, you can set the mood for a crazy time! Just add brightly colored feathers or flowers or try feather boas to match.

If you want to get really creative, try painting your martini glass vases or applying gemstones and sparkles to the base. If you prefer to keep things simple, trim a short length of thin feather bow to wrap around the stem. The top can be filled with a base layer of feathers followed by colorful blossoms and then draped in strings of matching beads!
