Angel Candle Paradise

Center pieces were the highlight of my preparations when I was putting together my little girls baptism gathering. Since I am always looking for something unique to stand out and I don't want the same generic stuff you find in every party store, I decided to work on my own centerpieces. A baptism in our family is considered a highlight in our lives and it brings a feeling of purity and innocence. What better then to take my candle hobby but instead of devoting most of the time in the candle area, I decided to build a garden paradise with a heavenly angel in the middle. I didn't make the candles, I simply bought them and created the hallow area to have a perfect space for my angel. The candle towered over the center of the garden and birds sat at the edge of a bird bath. The bird bath water was made of gel.

I had 6 tables and each had one of these candle center pieces making them the main decor for each. I used a variety of flowers in every candle centerpiece. So no two candle centerpieces were alike. They were all taken home by one of the guests after the party was over.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and posting. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I find it interesting to learn how others started in their business, how they keep it going and what their motivation is. I love your pieces by the way. Adorable!!
