The beauty of displays and centerpieces is often enhanced with small decorative accents like ribbon, flower, sand, or garland. We have a new line of magnetic butterfly decorative accessories that are gorgeous. These butterflies are hand crafted and hand painted in vivid colors. Each painted glass section is set in metal cutwork which gives the decorative butterflies as stained glass look. The butterflies have a small magnetic disc attached underneath so they can be placed on any ferrous (containing iron) metal surface. In addition, we also include a small suction cup with a built in metal disc which matches up perfectly with the magnet on the base of the butterflies. With this suction cup these butterflies can be used on a myriad of smooth surfaces including, vases, mirrors, window, candles, and more. These decorative accents can be use all around your home or at events such as weddings or banquets. Our wide selection of available colors means you are sure to find glass butterflies to match your color scheme. For other accents and decorative accents checkout U.S. Candle Company.
We have new submersible LED lights that are great for adding to your displays in low light settings like wedding receptions or banquets. These LED lights run on 2 batteries, which are included, and will last for approximately 8 – 10 hours. The lights will sink to the bottom of any water filled container. To turn the lights on/off simply twist the bottom half of the light. You can put LED lights into floater bowls, water filled cylinder vases, or any other container. If you aren’t using any type of floating candles or displays these lights can be used right on the table around your displays or centerpieces. Our LED lights come in white, purple, blue, pink, and amber. The floating candles at the top of the image are actually white candles in our 4″ diameter glass cylinder candle holders.
Don’t rule out scent at your wedding reception. Choose candles that have a fruit or food related fragrance, such as vanilla, chocolate, apples, or berries. Still think scent is not right for your wedding? Use unscented candles from our pillar, votive, floater, and taper lines.
The Perfect Color
Don’t stress if we don’t have your “perfect” color. The lights in reception rooms are usually dim. The color trends for this year are bold, exotic, and bright. Aqua, Hot pink, oranges, yellows and lime green are the colors for 2009! Don’t want to go too bold? Use these shades as a splash of color in your candle arrangements.
Want a destination wedding, but guests can’t afford to travel? Make the destination your wedding theme. Use exotic, tropical colors in your wedding candles and accessories.
Pearls and Ribbons
Create candle designs that are truly your own and save cash at the same time! Craft Stores carry pearl pins that you can pin to your wedding candles, and attach a ribbon in your wedding colors.
Not all of the table centerpieces need to be exactly alike. You can decorate with a set of 3 pillars on one table and on the next table have a bowl with floating candles. The use of reed diffusers as a centerpiece can add dimension that is visually and aesthetically stimulating.
Also, let those centerpieces do “double duty”. Designate someone to distribute them to special friends or relatives, or to hospitals, churches, or retirement homes when your event is over. You could use them as prizes given to winners of games played during the reception.
Use candles of different heights to make a statement. A mixed arrangement of pillar candles, of all different sizes make a spectacular look.
Create your own table decorations for a one-of-a-kind wedding! Use stones, beaded garland, or dried flowers as a finishing touch to your centerpiece.
Favors and Gifts
Our candles are cost-effective, so consider purchasing one for each guest at your reception. Wrap them in tulle, or with raffia ribbon, and leave them at each person’s place setting.
If you are stumped when it comes to what to get your bridesmaids, consider the gift of candles! Personalize each candle with a photo of the happy couple, either alone or with that bridesmaid, or with the wedding date, invitation, or design of your choosing processed on each candle!
One of the most romantic ways to begin your lives together is by the light of a candle. Toss a candle tin or some tealites into your suitcase! You will earn points with your partner!
IT’S YOUR WEDDING! DO IT THE WAY YOU WANT!
