Sorry, no pix of my actual lanterns, but they kinda looked like this:

Takeout Photo Frame

Instead of where the photo is, I had vellum; my border was also much thinner — about 1/4" — and covered in the same washi paper that I used on our invitations.  (Same thing on the other "big" side of the box; I covered the "small" sides, below the handles with the "holes" that I cut out of the paper when making the border pieces.)

I layered 2 pieces of vellum for each side: a colored sheet and a 2nd white sheet that I punched flower-shaped holes in. (I was originally gonna stamp the vellum w/ the kanji for "love," but I didn’t measure, and the stamp I bought didn’t fit, and I was too lazy/cheap to go buy another. The double vellum actually had the bonus of softening the light, and making it harder to see the outline of the candle inside.)

Inside, the candle was a votive set into a regular glass votive holder. They *just* fit inside, and nothing caught on fire.  We left the boxes open so that the heat could escape.

Sweetvenus, I love the candleholders in your photo. Could you tell me where you purchased them? Thanks!

sweetvenus– that is an AWESOME picture!  We’re looking to do our centerpieces for under $20/each… that might be the way to go!

That’s just my inspiration picture, but I think they are Partylite candleholders. I bought some that looked almost exactly like them.

Where on the partylite website did you see those? I absolutely adore that centerpiece and I was looking for something almost like it! Thank you!

I didn’t; I don’t know if they have been discontinued or what, but there are a few sets on ebay if you search for Partylite Elegance (those are the stemmed ones). I can’t remember the names of the small ones, but I saw those on there too.

Here’s mine 🙂 Inspired by Mrs Lemon I bought a lot of the stuff at Ikea and a candle website (actual drinking glasses from Ikea) The chargers we’re from Target on clearance I paid $12 for all 24 of them.

Here’s an updated picture: the top of the main holder is coated ina sparkle/glass material and then we added in the rocks just recenetly. I think that with those additions the centerpieces are about $10.50 each, my cost.

I’ve been doing a lot of research on pillar candles and I can tell you that Sweeney2Be has the right idea–IKEA definitely has the cheapest pillar candles.  Candles4Less.com has the cheapest votive candles and holders that I’ve been able to find.

For our centerpieces, we are using big glass hurricane candle holders and wrapping a piece of satin ribbon around each.  each table will have 3 candles on it and then each favor will be a little jar candle in a clear glass jar, so it will kid of be like a mini of the centerpiece.  i’m going to try to attach a pic, but i don’t think i know how… you can message me and i can try to send you a pic if you would like.   anyway, good luck!!!

They’re not available online but for those lucky ducks who have an ikea near them–check these out.  They’re available in 7 or 9 inches tall and they look just like the ones from the picture that sweetvenus shared.
