Soooo a long while back – like a year ago, Mama Repost, me, and Maid/Matron of Honor Repost were at the grocery store shopping for the engagement party (!) and stumbled upon these great little candles for like 50cents each.. or something like that. I had just booked our venue, we weren’t sure of a guest list, and we were NOT buying stuff for teh wedding yet. But Mom and Maid/Matron of Honor were! They snatched up all 60-something of these babies for my far-off wedding shower favors 🙂 I promptly dropped and broke about 15 of them when i opened the severely over-loaded hatch of the car at the house. I felt awful! Since then our guest list is shorter. there are 42 candles and 50 ppl invited to the shower – so we should be fine. Since I already knew about the shower date, and the candles, i was permitted to assist with the beautification process 🙂 I know nothing but the date! So, using things bought by each of us, as well as some leftovers from my BIL’s wedding last summer – we made the candles look lovely, and asembled some prize bags for the shower! It was so much fun, and I felt like an undercover agent!
Aren’t they special!
Below: The prize bags, you get one if you win a game 🙂 I don’t know what the games are…. Anyway, Inside the bag is a pair of sassy sayings emery boards, a cute luggage tag, a notepad and pen, a maragarita kit, and a pair of tealight holders with 12 tealights, wrapped in stacks of four using the same paper we cut the favor-candle labels from!
