    I want a LOT of candles and flowers as my centerpieces. I have bought 150 red and white tealight candles already but am wondering... how do you guys think I should organize these? I want it to look beauuutiful! We plan on having a lot of flowers and flower petals all over the tables as well. Please give me ideas!
    Ooh and am getting excited because today is exactly NINE months til the wedding! YAY! I am so happy!

      That sounds so pretty! I saw a Martha Stewart magazine that had a picture of different colored tealights placed on top of platters of different hights (I think some of them were cake plates)... I realise this might sound weird, I'll try to find a picture.

        I know what Galit is talking about - it's cool. Just a piece of advice though: you are going to need a votive/tealight holder to block any wind from blowing out your candles (assuming you will be outside).

        Here an idea:

          Christa I love that! What a great way to incorporate a lot of candles and not have them just spread out all over the place (ouch!)

              That's exactly what I meant! Also, I liked it with different pink, orange, and yellow votives :)

                Ooh, thanks so much for this! I am going to do a little research on my own but I really like the idea of different-sized heights for the candles to be held on.
