Inspiration of the Day: A Glowing Tabletop

by Simone Hill

For a chic modern wedding at the Newseum in Washington DC Lynn Easton, founder of Easton Events made this table glow! Using simple votive candles, a mirrored table cover, clear cylindrical vases filled with white flowers, created the effect of light emanating from the tabletop. The linearly designed tables also directed the guests' attention to the stunning view of the capitol building. For an added effect Lynn also placed votives around the perimeter of the room, and chose modern ghost chairs to complete the effect. You can buy votives (and customized holders!) in The Knot Shop, and the key here is to buy in bulk to pull off the glowing effect.
