Jasmine's Sweet Sixteen Pt 1

On Saturday, February 6th, we celebrated my niece's 16th birthday. The day started off gloomy and rainy, but by the end of the night the skies were dry. The theme of the party was Masquerade. The color of the decor was white with gold accents. Centerpieces consisted of Eiffel tower glass vases topped with feathers and a white and gold mask. Favors were white chocolate masks dusted lightly with a gold candy powder along with a gold half mask. The seating chart was displayed in a picture frame, and the guests were asked to sign a photo mat. The cake was covered in butter cream swirls and topped with the same mask that was on the centerpieces. While I was not the sole creator for this event, a lot of my ideas were used. Five months ago, when we first started planning this party it was to be a Mardi Gras themed party, but I had a vision, a vision of white. And so, they let me run with the white. Everything turned out fabulous. I was complemented relentlessly by the banquet staff, and after everything had been put in its place the event coordinator asked me for my business card. I told her I would have one for her in 6 months. She gave me her name and said when I get those business cards together, I should give her a call. I'm very proud of this party. As soon as we get the pro pics I will share them, but for now here are some pics I took of the details...

How did you make the centerpiece? We are doing a masquerade ball fundraiser for our elementary school
to buy a new sound system. Our decorating budge is small, so while I wanted to do these feather vases, we can't afford all the feathers. Please help us with directions if you can. The party is stunning! I wish I could hire you! Also, did you make the chocolate masks? Where did you find a mold?

Wondering if you received a response on how to make the centerpiece. I am also planning a sweet 16 masquerade and love the centerpiece.
