Always One to Accessorize

This past weekend, we were hosting some friends at Redbud Terrace. Unfortunately, my spring floral display was not as fresh as it could be and I needed to come up with a design idea to replace my wilted branches.

A quick dash to my craft supply room delivered some gold mesh ribbon, candles, glue dots…and an idea!

After disposing of the fallen flowers, I quickly cleaned my vases and placed three tall pillar candles inside each one.

After carefully measuring the circumference of the glass cylinders, I then cut the appropriate length of ribbon and affixed it to each vase using my trusty glue dots.

Results! A beautiful shimmering centerpiece that added some dramatic lighting to our festivities.

Note: I really wanted my flames to shimmer, so I secured the ribbon at varying levels according to where my flame burned the brightest!
