why don’t we… light candles in cupcake trays


Tea lights in cupcake trays for the party table.

Tea lights in cupcake trays for the party table.

There’s something about this time of year that makes me gravitate towards easy tips and tricks. My good friend Brenda recently shared this idea of putting tea lights in cupcake trays to act as candle holders for the table. Such a simple idea and one I immediately needed to replicate with the holidays knocking at our door. The idea works for birthdays, holidays, or anytime you want to add a little sparkle to the table without a lot of fuss.

It’s been a fun week of sharing some favorite tips and tricks before we jump head first into the holiday season… Thanksgiving is next week! Craziness. Here are a few other quickie ideas to make this year’s parties more festive and fun:

Adorable printable pie labels | Secret Santa with a twist | Umbrella + lights makes a huge statement | Sock wrapped wine | Text printed marshmallows | Apple pie ships | 8 office party hacks | Potatoes in the dishwasher | Paint your pumpkins white next Friday and call them snowmen | And the ultimate bloody merry!

Have a great weekend. xoxo
