This is the continuing story of creating table decorations for the groom's dinner, aka rehearsal dinner. I have appreciated your comments with support, tips, and your own experiences. Please keep them coming. I hope I don't wear out your patience. It seems that weddings are all encompassing of one's thoughts and energies.
I mentioned earlier that "it takes a village" to marry a couple, and boy is it true. But what fun to make memories! Everyone can look back and tell stories.
In cased you missed my inspiration tables...you can check them out in a recent post here.
I scoured Pinterest and the web for ideas and came up with using white pillar candles in tall hurricanes along with greenery and tulips.
Nana Diana gave me a tip about using Dollar Tree for my hurricanes. Oh my gosh...I found nine inch tall glass pillars for one dollar each. I ordered two cases, totaling 24. That sure beats the eight to ten dollar price I saw other places. Thanks Nana Diana.
I am taking the suggestion of several and being careful with fragrances. I bought unscented white candles at Hobby Lobby and I am opting for almost real tulips and preserved boxwood for my "florals."
