DIY Candle Centrepiece Tutorial
Sometimes, simplicity is everything. The flicker of a candle bobbing in water, the angry fizz of champagne, the floating smell of florals that precedes good company and great food. For glorious table decorations just like this one, you only need three things: floating candles, vases and flowers. If you’re low on time but want something that will still blow your guests away, this is the way to go. (Feature Photo by Rebecca Arthurs)
At just $3 for a pack of 5, floating candles are one of the best ways to make a big impression on a budget. It leaves extra cash to splash on vases, although with tall cylindrical ones starting at less than $4 at Koch, you probably won’t need to. You’ll want vases in varying heights for maximum impact, anywhere between 20, 40 and 60cm. The great thing about simple vases like these is that they can also be re-used later for flowers.
Mix roses and peonies in a white ceramic cube for a look that references both old and new. As with floating candles, these would look great in any colour scheme, so don’t feel like you have to stick with pinks and creams. Spritz the flowers with a long-lasting perfume like Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf to finish it off.
