I would paint it with a super glossy spray paint so it looks very polished, but I totally think that would work!

Stand:  Paint it navy blue. Hot glue a strand of rhinestones in two places, at bottom & mid top (where the indent is by round “bubble”) this will give you more refective light for crystals & add little bling.  Take two longer strands of crystals (instead of 4 short ones) drape them on oposite sides and instead of meeting end to end, have them cross over – will look more elegant (& cost less than 4 shorter ones)

Arrangement:  A siver foiled glass vase is inexpensive and looks like a million bucks. You can buy them at craft stores (or DIY)  The larger the flower, the less you’ll need.

I used large “shabby chic” silver foiled candle holders & put rhinestones about 1-1/2″ from top with pink & white flowers for my daughter’s princess luncheon party – not as formal as a wedding, but it was quite the affair.

Love the wooden stands!

@staciandmatt:  I would avoid rhinestones. Don’t get too literal. If you want classy, princess-y theme, what kind of princess? Medieval, castle princess?  Renaissance princess? Baroque princess? The first would have more rustic elements, the second would focus on rich colors and textures, the third would be hyper feminine with lots of gilt.

For a classy, princess look you need to focus on layered textures. I think it’s more important to have many elements, rather than one tall centerpiece in the middle. This will give a feeling of luxury.

I love the photos @MargaritaVille: posted…I would use a lot of greenery with navy blue/burgundy centerpieces.
