Save Money on Centerpieces!

Brian Dunning - Sunday, October 15, 2017
A great way to save money on your centerpieces is to use the "I.H." hurricane lamps.

The clear glass hurricanes are 11 1/2" tall complete with a 10" lit ivory tapered candle.

Provide a ribbon to match your wedding colors, and the "I.H." team will tie the bows for you, creating beautiful, simple and inexpensive centerpieces. 

You will need 1 1/2 yards of ribbon for each hurricane. Double faced satin (1 1/2" wide) works best, wired or unwired.

If you wish to dress your centerpieces a bit more, consider adding rose petals, fall leaves, "bling", or even a wreath to circle the hurricane.
