As per Wikipedia: Bling (or bling-bling) is a slang term popularized in hip hop culture, referring to flashy, ostentatious or elaborate jewelry and ornamented accessories that are carried, worn or installed, such as cell phones or tooth caps.
As a party planner for almost 20 years I personally define bling as…
“Any ornate party object that simply satisfies a guests wow factor”
When I think of bling I don’t think of one or a few shinny objects. I think of an over the top amount of flash, sparkle and glamour.
A quote on Urbandictionary.com states:
“Bling is kind of like swag, but less badass. A person who has bling is cool, awesome and kinda cute.” Funny statement but I couldn’t agree more!
Thinking about the word bling inspired us at PEP to create an over the top, glamorous, some would even say flashy center piece.
Here is what we designed:
Rectangle tables with a clear top works really well to display our multiple crystal chandeliers. Set on top was our gorgeous hand jeweled planter full of white flowers.
Of course we had to add a few random crystals and candles at the base. Accents are always a must in my world!
We debuted this look at an open house at Beat Street in Manayunk. It’s a perfect look for a girls bat mitzvah, wedding or actually any party at all!
Enjoy and bling on!
