Steps

1. Secure wire lantern kit + chain to top of jar
2. Fill 1/3 of jar with vase filler of your choice
3. Place candle on top of vase filler
4. Hang lantern at wedding reception or line pathways to light up the night

EB TIP: If your budget allows, make extra jars (non-hanging) as lanterns and add tags to give away as wedding favors. Guests will love ’em!

Alternate: Day to Night Decor

Fill with water + add flowers of your choice during the day; at night, add a floating candle to the water.

Handmade Love Birds Cake Topper

Who doesn’t adore love birds, much less handmade love birds? We especially love this handmade love birds cake topper by Tuck & Bonte, which has completely stolen our hearts. This topper features charming details like the groom bird in a felt top hat and ribbon bow tie, while his wife, Mrs. Bird, wears a lace and net veil, a strand of pearls, long eyelashes, and a pop of lipstick. Don’t they make a cute couple?

These handmade love birds will look pretty on your china cabinet after the wedding day, too, as well as atop your anniversary cakes. I love wedding decor that purposes even after the wedding day. To see more images and/or place an order for your wedding, visit Tuck & Bonte.
