Maybe gold dipped vases? I think gold dipped blush vases would look amazing, but you could also do an ombre with blush, burgundy, and gold. It would be a really fun project to diy, and it’s the kind of thing where you can actually spend money by doing it yourself. If your style is less modern or more ornate, you could stencil gold designs onto your vases instead of doing the gold dipped look.

I would consider putting burgundy fake berry stems in your arrangement, and either gold vases or vases painted with golden spray glitter (seriously one of the easiest and cheapest DIYs). 

If you don’t like the fake berry idea, burgundy tablecloths, sashes on chairs, bow ribbons on vases, or even just a simple small burgundy cloth that the vases sit on, etc 😊

georgiadreams :  Are you open to having candles on the tables at all? Burgundy and blush candles would be an easy way to tie those two colors in. Maybe taller burgundy pillar candles and small blush tealights in glass holder? If you’re looking to save money on candle holders as well, I really like the idea of using mismatched glass ones, which could be picked up cheaply at a secondhand or antique shop. Kind of like this:

Of course, you could also do the candles-floating-in-water thing as well, I always think that is beautiful. 

And then the gold should be pretty easy, especially if you can get your hands on some gold spray paint! You could always make the vases the flowers are in gold, but if you want just a little bit of gold, you could paint different toy animal statues gold. Or anything really, not sure why animal statues are coming to mind, maybe because I never got over this DIY project:

Are you a DIY’er at all?

You can spray paint branches gold, anchor them in an inexpensive box or vase with spray foam insulation and use just one hydrangea in a florist tube at the base of each branch.

You can often find manzanita branches on resale on Craigslist or http://www.searchtempest.com

You can incorporate burgundy by painting the container or as a pp has suggested with candles.
