My dad is a firm believer in only having chocolate cake at event. Why would you have anything else? You’ll be sure to bring smiles to everyone’s faces with these options.
One of the easiest ways to make a memorable impact on an empty space is to fill the ceiling. A chandelier is the perfect solution to filling this space. For a wedding, surprise your guests with something large and in charge. Here are some ideas:
- Floral chandelier
- Pom pom chandelier
- Ribbon chandelier
- Paper tube chandelier
- Lace hoop chandelier
- Paper lantern chandelier
Asking your dearest friends to be your bridesmaid is no longer a simple phone call. It’s turned into an event! A production! Don’t worry about the pressure though, because there are some simple and thoughtful ways to ask the big question.

I love how the simplest of materials can make a huge impact. For example, paper rolled into tubes can create a really cool chandelier. Use the colors from your wedding to create a modern decorative piece for your big day. I had seen this metallic version on Martha Stewart but thought it would be fun to mix it up with some colors.
Materials: paper (8 1/2 x 11″), stapler, two wreath forms in two different sizes, glue gun, fishing line, paint
Step 1: Paint the wreath forms white
Step 2: Roll the paper into tubes and staple at each end. You might need to reinforce it with two staples at each end.
Step 3: You’ll need about 40 tubes for both wreath forms.
Step 4: Add glue to the edge of the wreath and hold the paper tube onto it.
Step 5: Repeat the process affixing the tubes at different heights.
Step 6: Double strand the fishing line through each hole of the base wreath.
Step 7: String them through the next wreath. Tape each string at 7″.
Step 8: Add the second row of paper tubes onto the wreath.
Step 9: Tie all the strings together at the top.
You’re ready to go!
