And Then There Were Lights – Candles!

Candles are the perfect way to add romance to any event!  At every wedding I do, I always urge my brides to add as many candles as possible to add a golden flicker to any space!  You can use candles as centerpieces, on your tables, at your ceremony, around your cake and even outside in the trees!  Candles are so versatile and can be used to match any theme or decor whether its the color of the actual candle, or the candle holder and how it is used in the venue!

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use candles!  Enjoy!

I love the pops of Tiffany blue in this monochromatic tablescape!  Adds a flirty, feminine touch to this already elegantly beautiful event!

Who doesn’t love a tall taper to add height to a table?!  Plus the white tapers dripping in crystals with the plush florals is simply stunning!

Here’s another fun way to use tapers that is a bit more rustic and casual.  Such a fun look in the clear wine bottles to add a fun touch to a dinner table!

I love the use of candle holders at different heights in this picture!  Plus the glow from behind the flowers make the whole room glow a beautiful golden white!

Finally, I am obsessed with the suspended votives hanging above the tables.  I think this is such a fun new way to play with candles taking the term “lighting” more figuratively!  It gives the event a more whimsical look, one I can’t wait to use in one of my next events!!!

I have two more of my favorite types of event lighting to share with you this week!  Make sure you come back to see and let me know which is your favorite!

Letterpress Love

Nothing makes me more giddy than beautiful paper.  There is something so wonderful about a gorgeous invitation set with premium paper.  And texture is everything!  Your invitation is the first thing your guests will see and will set the tone for your whole event.  So choosing the perfect design is important, but so is choosing the perfect paper!

Take a look for yourself!

Letterpress adds depth and dimension to a two dimensional product.  Plus the pop of color is always so fun!

Letter press can be simple and clean, or ornate and glamorous!
