non-floral ideas part III: candles

elegant, formal & classic
candles bring that flickering light,
romantic feeling that nothing other can achieve
if exploring the non-floral route for
a wedding or event centerpiece,
why not make candles the focal point of the table?

for the past two posts, I have been exploring budget friendly,
non-floral alternative options for my friend Rachel &
her September wedding at Notre Dame University in Indiana.

this post will primarily focus on the use of candles,
whether in votives, glass ware, wine bottles,
wooden stumps or silver candlesticks:

winebottle candlesticks:

For Rachel, one who proudly embraces her Italian heritage
we thought, what's more italian than a bottle of chianti?

talk about classic italian, this easy DIY project looks great on any table
pair the bottle with a personalized wine label, coloured or
creme candlesticks, stack of books,
or other vessels & you have yourself a classic yet ecclectic display

clean, crisp & fabulous on any table

birdcages & lanterns:

glassware & various votives:

other ideas featuring candles:
-using varrying height & sized silver candlesticks
-finding antique silver short candelabras [not the tacky kind] &
combining them with other sticks or vessels
-wooden candle holders
