@partyplanner83:  what kind of look/theme are you going for?

When I saw those colors I automatically thought Sweet 16.

If you are adament on those colors, maybe you can use the pink as your main color and use the aqua as an accent color

I like taffeta better than satin

@partyplanner83: 

Here are a couple of pallets with the colors you like maybe these will give you a bit of inspiration. I added the gold to it so you could see what bits of gold mixed in looks like

Here are a couple of table ideas that would match your theme and colors

I think I would do something like this around your centerpieces. Then add hot pink flowers. Is there a reason you are planning on silk flowers?  What about doing hot pink phlox-They are tall, (Stem length is an average minimum of 15 inches.)  heavily, heavenly perfumed flowers-unless you are worried about too much scent.  According to Fiftyflowers,

 http://www.fiftyflowers.com/product/Phlox-Hot-Pink-Flower_27.htm  

(20 bunches or 200 stems for $209.99) they are available year round, and would look lovely in gold wine bottles. Are you having round or long tables?  🙂

@partyplanner83:  Another option for centerpieces would be to get manzanita branches -maybe 12″,  spray paint them gold, place them in flower pots with plaster of paris, and glue preserved orchids or roses and hang colored crystal like gems.

How about NAVY with purple/fuschia? This blue, when paired with other bright colors, reminds me of nailpolish trios they sell to kids. I think the navy would make it more grounded and let the bright flowers & other accents really stand out without being overwhelming:
