Set a pretty table

Want to set a beautiful table? I personally have found that it is easiest when you establish a theme. This one...butterflies. My sister gave me a large pillar candle a LONG time ago and it was just begging for some art!

The napkin holders are held together with basic grey magnets so they will be very easy to reuse time and again.
Here are all my project details:
Vintage Butterflies (Saturday Evening Post), Mother's Day Centers (Mona Lisa Moments) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
Ever After Patterned Paper (Cosmo Cricket)
Tissue and Wax Paper
Butterfly Die cut (Spellbinders)
Ribbon, Magnets (Basic Grey)
Copic Markers
Pearls (KaiserCraft)
Heat Tool

Here is a close up of the candle. I stamped on a large piece of tissue paper. Colored with my copics and then heat set it to my candle with a sheet of wax paper. I added some paper trim and ribbon to the very bottom.

Come back tomorrow for a new Kim Hughes peek!

What a beautiful idea for a table setting, and I would never have thouht of doing that to a candle but it makes it so unique! Thanks for sharing, you are an inspiration.

Great ideas. The napkin rings are so elegant.
