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 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!
