I love candle centerpieces because they make the room dance with excitement and add a delicate touch to any table. Plus, who doesn't love how they look with the warm glow created by candlelight! Candles can be used by themselves or you can incorporate them with the flowers on your table arrangements to create a soft, romantic setting for your reception. Scented candles can also be used for your reception if you choose a light scent that won't overpower your room. If the scent that you choose is strong, consider mixing some unscented candles along with the scented candles as to not overpower the scent in your room.

Macy's was having a sale on candles, so I purchased some candles, placed them in a tray and spread stones around the candles. Varying the heights of the candles adds an interesting touch to this table arrangement. The bride that I was working with loved the idea and was pleased by the low cost of her centerpieces.

Floating candles are always a hit as a wedding centerpiece. Fill a clear glass container with water and add candles that coordinate with your  theme. The above arrangement was created using small flowers with floating candles. You can coordinate the colors to match your color pallet and motif.

Another floating candle idea is to purchase a vase at the dollar store, float a candle and then place a few smaller candles around the center candle. While you are at the dollar store purchase a few leis that coordinate with your color scheme. Separate the flowers from the leis and scatter them around the candles. The total cost of this beautiful creation was $4.50.
