Lightbulbs Reused As Vases

With This Ring recently posted this simple lighting idea. A budget-friendly idea would be to take old lightbulbs, or buy new ones in bulk, and unscrew the top, then use a long wire to string them all together.

First you would need to CAREFULLY hollow out the top of the bulb. Second, you would need to wrap the wire tightly around each bulb neck, then leave a straight portion between each bulb. It would look very similar, but would also be budget, and environmentally friendly.

Or, alternatively you could hang one bulb from each chair along the aisle, and it would look something similar to this:

    I think the KEY here would be to choose a bloom that was wide and large enough to cover the silver ring at the top! Thanks ladies 🙂

    To answer your question about colored wedding shoes … HOT HOT HOT, just totally LOVE it!! Mine, in fact, were champagne gold with champagne rhinestones on them. Don’t be scared to use color. Check out Mia’s and Nina’s 🙂 FUN SHOES!!
