Hi Ladies.. while I was out I saw these on clearance and could not bring myself to walk out without buying all the ones they had (only 8).
My Fi thinks they’re a bit plain and I feel like they’re a bit too “modern’ feel for what i was going for (mind you, i dont really know what i’m going for, lol).
What do you think can be done to them (without ruining the wood with a gluegun or something messy) to dress them up a bit>
I welcome all ideas!!
XOXO THANK YOU

Two possibilities come to mind:
1. Soften it up by adding a wide silky ribbon in ivory or one of your wedding colors. Tie it just like a present, and make a big floppy bow on top. Place the candle in the center on top of the bow, or if that’s too wobbly, then move the bow off-center so the candle can be centered like you have it in the picture. You could even keep those pastel beads on the candle if the bow is a pastel color to match.
2. Use the space inside as a slot to hold menus, programs, or music requests and pencils. That’ll make it seem more like a functional piece than a modern art statement. Just make sure you cover the entire top of it so it doesn’t look box-like. Top it with a poofy flower wreath, or drape a small place cloth over it and arrange three candles of different styles and heights on top.

You could wrap the wooden part with fabric of any color – a way to change the wood part without ruining it – and then put the candle back in the top section. Or you could buy a larger, flameless candle and use that instead.
I like the idea of using the open space as something functional. Or you could just put flowers under there to make it feel a little more lighter.
