My friend is getting married. She is having a reception at a fairy festival. We are working out ways to make it as beautiful as possible for her.  Here are the first 7 of her tea lights holders only 43 or more to go.





I think I might have to neaten the tops of a bit better. Any ideas.

Thanks to pink who inspired me.

Those are so pretty!
I was thinking ribbon too... Maybe a wide black ribbon with a thin pink ribbon over it for the pink jars and the opposite for the black ones? If cost is an issue, maybe you could do the same thing, but just make the bands out of scrapbooking paper or another fairly thick paper. You could probably even find some really cute fairy paper if you wanted (or butterflies, or dragonflies, or whatever). Oh, will guests be taking these home after the reception? You could take the scrapbooking paper and print their names and wedding date on it, then cut the strips and put them around the mouths of the jars. Centerpieces and favors all in one. Smiley

 I like the , scrap booking (date name idea). I don't think the bride will need 60 lights after the event. I am a bit worried about ribbon melting with the heat.

Might have to try one of each. I was contomplating silver looking wire.

The name/date idea is awesome. never thought about ribbon melting. good call. Wire would look nice I think- maybe with some beads too???
