Looking to make my own centerpieces for a September wedding. I am thinking something with candles. Any suggestions? Oh, I need 40 of them! Anyfeed back will be helpful.
I made the most beautiful centerpieces for my May 2002, wedding. What I did was bought small mirrors, bought small vases that I attached using a glue gun) to the mirrors. Bought some decorative ceramic flowers that I attached around the vase on the mirror. filled the vase with blue marbles and a floating flower shaped candle. Filled with water and voila!! I calculated that for the 15 I made @$8.00 each centerpiece. And they looked expensive :) Oh, I also wrote on the bottom of the mirror a message thanking guests for the special memories (as I gave these out as gifts after the wedding)
Congratulations on your Big Day!!
I recently went to a wedding where the bride and groom scattered blue and clear glass votives with candles everywhere! There was one at each place setting, a few scattered on a mirror in the middle of the table with some loose flowers scattered around as well.
For my wedding I took large glass bowls (found at the large craft supply stores) and filled them with Sea Shells and floating sea shell shaped candles. (I had a sea shell theme instead of a color theme.) For a little extra pizzazz I also put two white kissing fish in each bowl. In total I think I spent $8 on each arrangement. Since then many people have come to me with other ideas, like colored artist sand in the bottom and glass beads.
Depends on your colors. If you are using fall colors, a simple column candle on a mirror tile, surrounded by fall leaves, real or artificial would be great.
