    Those look really great! I love the idea of using real grapes. The monogram and the candles with the ribbon are beautiful.

    I like the idea of using a mirror underneath it...it would reflect the light and look beautiful. If you decide to consider mirrors underneath, check out www.sav-on-crafts.com They have some great deals on craft stuff and I saw some mirrors on there that might work for you. They do a cost break if you order more than a certain number of an item. Might be worth checking out.

          I loved the centerpieces, they are so original I would go for the mirrors, they would look geat and reflect more light, I was just thinking the pace where you are having your reception, is it windy? If so you may have some problems with he candles, but you could also use some votives!!

            They look great, and I love the idea of the real grapes (I love grapes)... I think that the mirrros underneath would be a wonderful way to display them

              Christine, I love the centerpieces. The grapes are perfect for your Napa theme and will help cut costs. I love the monogram candle too. I would check out Hobby Lobby for charger platters. I just bought nice silver ones for $1.87 each.

                Christine your centerpieces are so original and perfect for your theme!!! The ONLY thing I'd change is the ribbon around the burgundy candle.. I think another color would make it stand out more..
                I don't mean to criticize, they're gorgeous either you change it or not!!

                Sarah what is hobby lobby, I don't think we have that in VA. I will have to google it. I would love Silver Chargers, so much better than mirrors. One of my friends said I should look at Home depot for large tiles? But I think the unfinished sides would be weird.

                Anny I don't mind, I actually didn't know what to do about the same color thing either, my original plan was to do the burgandy ribbon on the ivory one and the monogram on the burgany one, but you couldn't even see the monogram so I had to switch them. I will have to play with it a little more.
