One of our favorite trends in recent years is events that sparkle. I’m talking about the shimmer, the luster, and the shine that only metal hues can bring. From silver linings to gold glitters, we love them all, but this year’s blushing, feminine favorite—rose gold—makes us swoon.

It’s simple to add metallic elements to bring glitz and glamour to your day. These 7 ideas guarantee that the bride’s ring won’t be the only thing at your event that sparkles!

All that glitters is not gold

…sometimes it’s macarons. Edible glitter comes in many colors and adds beautiful sparkle to bridal shower cookies and wedding cakes alike. Luster dust is another way to add shimmer to your confections. (Tip: Not a baker? You can easily embellish bakery goodies with a touch of bling. Luster dust simply brushes on, while edible glitter can be adhered with a little icing.)

Say cheers with Moscow mules in the traditional copper mugs. A few sips of this ginger beer and vodka cocktail (with a twist of lime) and everything will look as sparkly as your mug.

Rosé cocktails can also lend a beautiful color to a rose gold event. Try this brunch cocktail with St. Germain and sparkling rosé from Designlovefest.

Little things mean a lot

Subtle touches—like this lace and ribbon embellishment—are beautiful ways to add a bit of shimmer to your event. They’re also a good reminder that you don’t need to go over-the-top with the sparkly details to achieve a bit of glamour.

Go big or go home

But of course sometimes you want to make a bolder statement. A dramatic table scape might start with this sequin table runner. It’s also available in other sizes and shapes to turn up the glamour.
