How to Decorate a Wedding Table with Tulle
Decorating a table with tulle is not only easy; it's an affordable way to dress up a guest table, buffet or a sweetheart table for a wedding, shower or any elegant special event. The rolls of tulle can be easily found at many dollar and craft stores and come in a variety of colors. To further dress up the table, you can add bows, sprigs of flowers, decorative pins, toys or anything else that will make your party pretty wherever the tulle is scalloped and pinned.

How to Make Wedding Favors
Whether you use a decorative bag or a box, here's a sweet idea for wedding favors. Chocolate kisses were used in demonstration, but any small candy will do. And, for a Valentine's Wedding, wouldn't heart-shaped candy be perfect? And even if you're not getting married around Valentine's Day and you have time to plan, stock up on the heart-shaped candy and keep it in a cool, dark, dry place (or your freezer) until it's time to create your wedding favor boxes. You also can use personalized ribbons or use a fabric pen to create your own thank you on ribbon you find at your craft or dollar store to further personalize your favors.
How to Make a Wedding Centerpiece
For this demo, I used an oversized bowl that might be too large for your guest tables, but a smaller bowl or a trifle bowl will work as well. The tips of your flowers may get singed, but they won't catch on fire since everything is floating in water. Plus, since you're using very few flowers, this is a very affordable and colorful centerpiece.
How to Make a Unity Candle
What makes this idea so terrific is that you can completely customize a candle to match your style and décor. Here's a tip that was cut out of the video. When you want to insert the t-pin, heat the tip first with a lighter or lit candle so that it will slide into the candle's wax more easily. You can further decorate the candle with studded pins (even pierced earrings will work) for a more decorative touch.
