Masquerade Party Ideas
A Masquerade Party is so much fun! Everyone in costumes and masks. Well, you'll have a few fuddy duds not in costume, but that's ok. Just don't invite them to next years party. I'm just kidding. What's the fun of a Masquerade without dressing up?
You can do this theme for a masquerade birthday party, anniversary, holidays, prom, or just for fun. Use these ideas for a Mardi Gras party as well.
Masquerade Invitation Ideas
Purchase paper masks. Tie a tag on them with instructions to wear this mask or one of you own making. Give party instructions on the tag as well.
You could also find a picture of a Victorian couple dancing. Print on card stock. Print or handwrite instructions inside. Place silver or gold glitter inside.
Or glue a colorful mask to a blank card and embellish with glitter and ribbon.
Here are some fabulous pre-made invites...
Masquerade Costume Ideas
Be the Belle of the Ball in a gorgeous gown and mask.
Inform guests to come dressed in costume. Something from the past. Queens, Kings, Pirates, Famous people, Fairies, and the list goes on. You can go with a theme, or not.
If you're creative, you can scout out thrift stores and flea markets. The sillier the better. This is all about fun.
Online shopping is fast and easy where you can find some awesome Adult Costumes
Of course everyone should come wearing a mask. You might purchase some extra ones for people that forget to wear one and for decorations.
Masquerade Decoration And Centerpiece Ideas
Your colors can be anything for a Masquerade Party. Just use 2 or 3 and include silver or gold as one of them. If this is going to be a Mardi Gras, then you will want to use gold, purple, and green.
Here are some great color combos for a Masquerade Ball.
- Black, white, and silver
- Purple, green, and gold
- Hot pink, lime green, and silver
- Black, white, red, and silver
- Red, purple, and gold
- Cream and gold
- White and silver
- Black and silver
- Lavender, pale green, and silver
Of course this is not an all inclusive list of colors. Use your imagination and come up with a color scheme that matches your personality.
The best place that I've found for Masquerade Party supplies is ShindigZ.com.. Their section on Masquerades is huge and the service is great.
You'll want to create a castle feel. Go all out with glamour and glitz. Mirrors are a great decorating tool. Place large mirrors along the sides of the party area to reflect all the beauty that you create.
Spray paint old chairs, chandeliers, candle holders, pillars, and anything else you can think of, silver or gold.
Hang the chandeliers. You can rip out the electrical parts and put candles in the holders.
Drape tulle or gossamer on the ceiling and walls. You want a very elegant feeling.
Place candles everywhere. Turn the lights off for the evening, and just have candlelight.
Place pillars in groups of 3's. Place plants and candles on them. Place fake trees and plants in and among the pillars.
Wind rose flower garlands on the chandeliers, in trees, on tables,and on chairs. Set vases of fresh flowers on tables.
Purchase yards and yards of pearl garland. Wind around everything. Have it spilling out of bowls.
Masquerade centerpiece ideas can be anything from balloons to candles to flowers. Make balloon bouquets and place on tables. Or use silver or gold candleholders and pillar candles. Candelabras would be gorgeous masquerade centerpieces.
Flowers are also a sure bet for centerpieces. Place them in a pretty vase for a stunning centerpiece idea. Sometimes I like to place the flowers in a tall glass cylinder vase and fill the vase all the way up with water, covering the flowers. It's a really pretty effect.
Purchase pretty masks on sticks and add to your flower vases. Feathers are a great centerpiece ideas as well. Place long feathers in a tall vase.
Scatter gold or silver wrapped chocolate candies around your centerpiece or use confetti.
You can use Masquerade party supplies or real china. Place the napkins in Diamond Ring Napkin Holders (Set Of 4)
