OMG! I came accross with some awesome table numbers luminaries from “chazieurbie” on the “table cards” section, that I couldn’t help make a couple of them for my 1st wedding anniversary!! . I didn’t use them as table numbers though, but just as cute little centerpieces that my husband and I (and a couple of family members and friends) enjoyed during the evening. I just thought I would share! This is how they looked:
And a tiny one:
OMG! I loved them soooo much that I’m sorry I didn’t find out about them before my wedding last year!! This is how my vellum luminaries centerpieces actually looked like at my backyard wedding last year:
I liked these ones too but the cylindrical ones are waaaaay easier to make. Which ones would you bees have preferred? Not that I regret the ones I made for my wedding but just wondering Because I might keep making some of them for the rest of my life!! LOL!

Hi girls! Thanks a bunch for your comments! I never thought that someone would be interested in buying my lumies, so I’m kind of flattered (Thanks a lot!). And of course I would love making them for bees! On the other hand, since I have no experience in making them for other bees, I wouldn’t like any bee disappointed if by any reason the lumies are not as expected. Well.. I don’t know… at least for now, I say I would prefer to leave that to the professionals and maybe in the future (if I’m a good girl), I might be selling lumies too! I’m so glad you liked them!

I have a question. Why do you have a “-y-” instead of the & or the word “and”?
Your liminaries are beautiful and I am sure you can sell these easily!

“Why do you have a “-y-” instead of the & or the word “and”?”
They’re in Spanish. “Y” is the word for “and” in Spanish.

Oh, yes! That’s because I live in México (I’m mexican), so everything was in spanish =) I just learnt some english in high school (here in México), so that’s why I’m able to post in english =D

Love your luminaries. How did you ladies figure out how to keep the tape from showing? And what keeps this from being a fire hazard…Im always worried about that. Thanks

I love luminaries. I did a name plaque luminarie at my brother’s wedding reception. It was really nice. I told a triangle shipping box, the kind you put poster in, and I carved their names into it. Then I slid those battery operated tea lights it to back light it, so you could see their names light up. It was pretty.

Thanks! I’m glad you liked them. Well, I didn’t use any tape, I just glued them with glue stick (Yeah!) and worked just fine. I’ve seen some posts here and there where they use double sided tape. I’ve never used that but I think it should work fine =). Regarding your concern about the lumies catching on fire, I don’t think there will be any problem as long as the vellum doesn’t get blown by the wind. Some bees just wrap a glass cylinder with the vellum to have a little more weight (I think it’s a great idea)

Oh, yeah! Tell me! I’ve been a lumie psycho for all my life! Hey, but What’s a plaque luminary? I’d love to see a picture. And the triangle shipping box thing is very intriguing to me =P
