How to: wrapped tealights…

December 7, 2010 19 Comments by Kirsty

The wedding on Saturday was a real group effort.

Friends of the bride & groom shared their talents and helped out with cake decorating, invitations, photography & personalised chocolates as place settings!

I had a hand in the centrepieces for the tables.  They looked beautiful and created a lovely romantic ambient glow. These are just perfect if you’re planning a DIY wedding because they can be made well ahead of time.

The glasses were picked up for 50 cents a piece at local op shops.  We chose to wrap in bamboo which had a lovely sheen & looked very pretty in the daylight.

Obviously these can be used and reused for different events & as either tealights or vases.

Perfect for your holiday table too.
