Table Decorations

Yesterday I got to play!! I had a great idea for some table decorations that I wanted to make for the rehersal dinner for Justin and Kristy for the wedding coming up in June.
I had found the idea on Splitcoast Stampers and knew exactly what I wanted to make, it was just a matter of sitting down and doing them.
I went to Good Will and found these lovely long stem wine glasses and juice glasses; also found some colored sand in the colors for the wedding, lucky was that?!

The shades are made from Stampin' Up! Vellum Cardstock, stamped some flowers from the retired SU set Looks Like Spring, then I took the matching SU punch and punched the flowers, knowing that this way the light will shine through the punched out flowers would add a nice effect. Added the sand to the bottom as I didn't want the glasses to get too hot when I put the tea candles in the glasses. I wanted a simple look and not too gaudy, I did add a vellum daisy with a jewel to the stem base of the glass. Just a little sparkle but not too much.

For the smaller juice glasses I took the vellum again and punched the edges using SU's newest punch, Scallop Trim Border, I just loved the effect it gave to the belly bands that I made for these glasses. Added a vellum daisy and a cardstock daisy with a blue jewel and stamped the word "cherish" and that completed the look. I was going for something simple but yet nice. Since its an outdoor wedding reception and simple rehersal required simple decorations.

Justin and Kristy loved them and I found out that instead of tea candles that there are LED tea lights available which is a great idea and I won't have to worry about the glasses getting hot and cracking. So I am going get some of those and won't they be so pretty on the tables of the rehersal dinner?!!

Thanks for stopping in, let me know what you think, I always appreciate your comments.
