There has been a lot of excitement at our house this past weekend! I got to cohost a bridal shower for Jennifer It was a bit nerve-wracking as I really wanted this to be a very memorable day for Jenn and her guests. As you may recall, I sprained my ankle a few weeks ago and it is slow to heal – therefore making it a tad diffficult to hobble around the house, but I was determined to make this a special day for my only child!
I will share more about the bridal shower with you in future posts – but today I wanted to share with y’all the teacup candle party favors that I made for the guests.
It’s no secret that Jennifer and I love and admire all things vintage. It was important to me to be sure to incorporate vintage elements for Jennifer’s bridal shower.
First, I amassed a collection of vintage teacups. I collected 20 teacups in a very short amount of time from thrift stores and antiques shops. With the exception of one cup – I didn’t spend over $2 for any cup. Several were only .50 cents each.
I melted each wax brick separately. Each brick provided enough melted wax for four teacups. **Caution** Be very careful when melting and pouring wax. Do not let it boil. Don’t leave the percolator unattended. Do not let melted wax get on your skin as it will burn.
