Summer Centerpieces

Flowers and candlelight are nothing new,but together they create tabletop decorations fit for relaxed summer entertaining. Place votive candles in tall glass vessels,and attach a flower outside each,trimming the stem to fit and tying with raffia that matches the flower. Set each display in a saucer of water to keep the flowers fresh

To create this illuminating centerpiece, place a glass vase inside another that is slightly larger(secure them with floral adhesive),and then pour tinted water in between them. Pillar candles are best for this project;not only are they pretty,but their weight will further anchor the interior vase. For added light play,make a series of these centerpieces in different shades of the sane hue.
