There's a reason why the candlelit dinner is a romantic cliche: The soft glow of the flame warms the mood and makes everyone appear gorgeous to boot, and the flickering light sets hearts a-flutter. Add a modern twist on this unique lighting to your reception table with these striped vellum-wrapped candles. With their bold patterns and colors, you'll get all the romance plus a bold conversation starter.
To make them, download the pdf of your choice (they're available in loads of colors to pair with any color scheme) and print onto clear vellum paper. Wrap around square glass candle holders and affix with strong double stick tape or glue dots.
