Pinterest has become the ultimate destination for inspiration and creativity – especially for brides. Let’s face it, there are two kinds of people in this world. Those who will pay a premium to have someone else create a one of kind piece and those who think to themselves “I’m creative, artistic and fully capable, why don’t I just do it myself?”
Which brings me to my own engagement party, which somehow ended up turned into a mini-wedding. Just 90 of our closest friends, family and colleagues. Did I mention we served a four course meal? How could I forgot the violinist, Italian cookie trays (thank you Nonna & Zias), 3 tiered cake, candy bar and the Nutella sfoglia cake?
Once the big picture details were finalized, my uber-artistic sister and I sat down and thought about how we can infuse a bit of life and personality into each table. After some crafty detective work on Pinterest and hours spent on the Ikea website, we came up with a contemporary, simple yet elegant centerpiece design.
Here are the links to all of the pieces we purchased to bring the design to life:
VÅRVIND – Set of 2 clear glass cases (we filled the vases with either freesia or white roses)
UPPEHÅLL – Set of 4 votive candle holders in clear glass
HEMSJÖ – Unscented white block candles
BORRBY – Lantern for block candle, black indoor/outdoor black
FENOMEN – Unscented block candle, natural
