I feel like I write about luminaries and candles a lot...considering I love them it is not surprising. I am always looking for different ways to have candlelight at my parties. I wanted a casual feel for the Chilly Chili party this weekend so I created these using glass vases, brown paper and raffia ribbon. I can't wait to put them out!
I started with these basic vases/votives that look like flower pots. Then I wrapped them with a square of brown craft paper and tied them off with raffia ribbon. These are going to go outside around the railing on my deck. I will also put around inside too.
Then for my front porch I created 6 large lumniaries using glass vases wrapped in brown paper. I will put three on each side.
Here they are lit - pretty cool!
One of my favorite things about going to a party is the entrance and seeing the house lit up and ready to welcome visitors. I think this is mostly true at the holidays. When the house is inviting, bright and sparkling and is such a welcome relief in the cold night.
