This is such a wildly unique centerpiece idea. There's something incredibly old-fashioned about it. (And is it just me or does anyone else get a really chic pirate vibe?)

Jennifer [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I LOVE this idea!!! So simple yet so elegant looking! Perfect timing for this post for me, thanks!

Gorgeous! What a great way to recycle wine bottles that just go to waste!

Dena [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

What a great idea. Really cool and beautiful!

Absolutely beautiful. Leave it to TIG to prove that great style comes from imagination - not a money tree, (though one of those would certainly be nice).
Candle light paired with shimmering glass is always elegant and undeniably glamorous.

I love this. Very cool.

Melissa [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Love this idea! Usually I think wine bottle decorating looks tacky but the all clear bottles looks very cool. I may have to try this.

Tanya [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

This is absolutely gorgeous. I knew I needed to go to the recycling center for something!

i've only seen this in italian restaurants, but this looks a hundred times more stylish. i like the budget-/eco chic part of it as well.

Elizabeth [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I bet it looks super neat when the wax starts to melt and build up on the bottles.

Oooh la la FAB table!!!

Mélanie [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

This is simple, eco chic and elegant ! All what I love

xoxoC [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

This is a really beautiful, the only downside I could see is it blocks your view of the guests across from you, making conversation difficult. And I see what Brandie means, about the chic pirate vibe!! :p

xoxoC [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Also, it reminds me of when my roommate and I hosted a Bohemian/ Moulin Rouge theme party last winter and used the same concept, candles in wine bottles. Only we placed them all over in every room! I really love this idea!! :)
