Thanksgiving Day Pumpkin Lights

Who said pumpkins can only be used for Thanksgiving? I founds these and thought how great it would be to have several lining a pathway to your home, have one or two snuggled into a garden or to have one or two in your home. Remember, you don’t have to use candles – there are many battery operated options to use now. You prepare the pumpkin the same way you do for a pumpkin you are going to carve. Use various drill bits to crate patterns like seen above or use a sharpie marker to draw your own. Two tips I will give: 1:take a large cup and turn it so the drill bit goes through it and covers a portion of your drill and 2: use the lowest speed on your drill. Best to use an old drill for this and use lots of caution. They are really cute and unexpected and guests will love them.

Decorate it with the white petals and pinecones, snowflakes and faux snow, candles and crystal garlands.

Crystal and Silver

For setting the right mood it is crucial to have luxe materials for that timeless look. If you choose silver use classic look of wedding cake, serving platters and pastry tiers and shining candelabras.

It is an excellent idea to use some crystal trees that you could rent. Or you could keep the décor minimal with lots of atmospheric lighting and silver sprayed branches. Glamorous crystal beaded capes and pale liquid gowns lend themselves to a gorgeous bridal look.

Flowers

When it comes to flowers, you can have anything you want for your big day. If you want a dreamy, light look for your bouquet, the best choice for you would be fall-blooming anemones. They vary in hue and will retain different shades of blue, pink and lavender.

Dusty miller may not be technically a flower, but its silvery-gray color will give that cool accent in your bouquet, and it will be the perfect addition to your winter fairytale wedding. It can be paired with other bouquets because its color go with any other you prefer.

Our next top choice is Lily of the valley. It is the most fantastic flower that will be an excellent option for your bouquet. Even the way it falls looks like snow.

Lighting and Draping

Most of the brides dream about the perfect outdoor wedding. If you want to get that look hire a professional to drape the statement tables, walls, and ceilings with twinkle lights and organza or tulle. It will transform any room entirely, and you will have a feeling that you are in some fantastic place.

Bear in mind that this idea is not cheap at all, but you will have wedding you always wanted!

Candle Flower Centerpiece

10952145_10153028184328080_5399231901281726970_nThis is such a great idea for your deck or patio and would make a real impact for table centerpieces. Pots can be painted any color and add a ribbon to match colors of flowers.

Start with a pot six inches larger then the one on the middle and make sure the one in the middle is big enough to have the flute fit inside the edge of the pot.

If you are going to use these for a festivity like a wedding (paint white, silver,wedding color). You will trim it out later with a bow to coordinate.

Fill the larger pot with garden topsoil to the point that if you put the smaller pot inside the edges meet all the way across. With the smaller pot inside nestled on the top soil add top soil to the outer pot and add pea gravel or sand to the middle pot.

Plant small plants in the rim with garden soil such as pansies or you could even use succulents.

Place votive candle center of the middle pot and add flute. Add a ribbon or paint decorative designs on outside of pot.

Small pots are not that expensive and candle flutes can sometimes be found at a dollar store. Make several for a wedding and give them away to guests that you wish to acknowledge. It will be a special gift they will enjoy.
