Light Up Your Reception: Stunning Ways To Use Candles In Wedding Centerpieces

Nothing sets a romantic mood like candles. As the temperature starts to dip, our weddings move to indoor venues where the atmosphere is warm and lovely, but natural light may be lacking. For this reason, incorporating candles into wedding décor becomes especially important during the fall and winter seasons!

Where to start? One feature that we especially love to see enhanced with a flickering flame or two is the wedding centerpiece. Candles come in a variety of options including pillar, taper, votive, and tea light. There are so many ways to create an illuminating display that radiates style, luxury, and romance for your tablescape. From cozy and intimate to modern chic to grand opulence, here are stunning ideas for using candles in your wedding reception décor.

B&B Blooms in Spotlight: Amnesia Rose

“Love planted a rose, and the world turned sweet.” With so many quotes about the romantic beauty attributed to the rose, the words of poet Katherine Lee Bates rank as our favorite. Not all roses are the same though, and each type has its own singular allure.

To inaugurate B&B Blooms in Spotlight, a blog series devoted to our favorite wedding flowers, we are going to talk about the amnesia rose. In recent years, this bloom has caught the admiring eye of the wedding industry and become very popular with our own brides. What makes the amnesia rose so special is its unique lavender, beige and green tones, which give the flower a lovely ‘antique’ look. For this reason, they are the perfect floral feature to showcase in a vintage style wedding.

Interview with Katie Rotio of Katherine Elizabeth Events

The saying goes, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” By the time Katie Rotio began planning for her wedding, she was enjoying success as a custom wedding stationery designer for her business Katherine Elizabeth Events.

Katie’s wedding was set to take place in Massachusetts in November – not an ideal situation for a bride-to-be who desires local fresh flowers to decorate for her special day. Instead of giving up on her floral fantasies, Katie took matters into her own hands, literally, and taught herself the art of making paper flowers. She spent night after night making roses and calla lilies to create her entire wedding décor – one bridal bouquet, eight bridesmaids bouquets, 21 boutonnieres, and over 171 single flowers for the centerpieces! Needless to say, her guests were stunned by the whole presentation.

Scenes From Last Night’s Flower Class: Contemporary Centerpieces

 

Last night’s flower-class theme was Contemporary Centerpieces and we had so much fun! Fresh, bright blooms, including fuchsia carnations, yellow pincushion protea and green dianthus, set the tone for bold, modern arrangements.

Expert floral stylist, Dawn, led the demonstration (in an adorable yellow dress!), while students got hands-on experience preparing and working with flowers. Contemporary table centerpieces tend feature strong lines, unusual flowers or greenery and unexpected texture. Here you’ll notice a geometric look, created with a square base and diagonal greens. These modern floral arrangements are very different in style from the softer, romantic florals featured in classes like Roses & Rose.
