From the minute this emerald, black and gold glamorous wedding shoot photographed by Megan Chase Photography landed in my inbox, I knew it would be perfect to feature during this festive time of year!
With the Art Deco style of the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square and emerald – 2013’s color of the year in abundance everywhere – it was clear from the beginning of planning this shoot would be all about glamour and fun.
From the glitter covered Champagne bottle to the plates rimmed in gold, to the polka dot bow-tie napkins and the fun blue bottom Champagne glass with glitter flag stir sticks, there are so many festive details here to be had. And if you want to get the look, lucky for you the “How Tos” are listed at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!

How to get the glitter look……
Champagne glasses (the ones here are from Ikea), Multipurpose craft glitter paint, Pom sponge
Apply the paint to the sponge then begin dabbing the paint from the stem of the glass upwards. Let dry between coats. Apply more coats to the bottom of the glass to create a faded look.
Your favorite bottle of champagne, Elmer’s glue, Craft glitter, Foam paint brush
Make sure the bottle is at room temperature and dry; the glue will not stick if the bottle is damp. Apply the glue over the bottle. Heavily sprinkle the glitter over the bottle, making sure the bottle is covered. Let dry and try to take your eyes off the bottle.
Bottle caps, Elmer’s glue, Craft glitter, Black poster board, Frame, Adhesive Glitter letters
Thoroughly wash and dry the bottle caps. Apply a layer of glue to the inside of the bottle cap. Apply glitter and shake off excess. Let dry. Be- dazzled!
