The spring ideas at BHLDN and Floral Verde were just too good. So I’ve parlayed their goods into my trend spot as well; event lighting. Sure, string of lights may be an easy go to for creating mood without much thought or effort. But, oh what a difference the real thing makes. The flicker of an actual flame is unmistakable and can be done almost as easily as flicking on last year’s strand of holiday lights. Tea lights can be surprisingly dramatic when lit in floral arrangements of all designs or when lit in paper bags hung along a fence or in antique glass votive holders. The best part of these options is that they are worth their weight after the big event and simple backyard dining ambiance inducers.
