I'm not having centrepieces with flowers - have put together my own using candles and other bits and pieces.. Any ideas about what to do about decorating the top table - would pillar candles along the front be ok??

different sized pillar candles all along the front would be gorgeous, have you seen the fairy light swags i think they're nice - but would probably be too much if you had all candles too. I have also seen swarovski garlands they are alot like crystal bouquets but they stretch and spread along the top table - they also have spaces for tea lights - i imagine they would be so twinkly with the candle light - gorgeous! very expansive though! x

I knew you'd have some great ideas!!!!! Thanks for that - I was out in ikea last night and they have some great deals on candles. Do you think just candles would be ok...I'm kinda lazy when it comes to stuff like this...am I kidding myself that less is more? Will check out your other suggestions though Thanks :thnk :thnk

How about diamante pins that can be stuck into the candles? Would add some sparkle. I got a pack from ebay, really reasonable!
