Recently, I went to lunch at a store in Greenville that also has a restaurant (more of a tearoom) called Twigs. We had lunch and then saw displays about how to create a summer table. Dumb me forgot her camera. I bought a few things but tried to copy the rest at a discount.
What I did buy were the little cups with the crystals hanging from them. You could put a candle in them but I used little birds like they did. I also bought 3 tiny lights on batteries to put inside the vases with the crystals that came from Hobby Lobby. Since I took these photos during the day, you can't see the lights.
What I liked about this table centerpiece was that you can see through it. Unlike flowers, it gives you the opportunity to see who is across from you. I also got a teeny tiny string of lights that operates on a battery that you can wrap around the container. Again, it was daylight, so I didn't use them.
Hope you enjoy this idea.
