2015 is a very special year for Mr B and me. This year we celebrate 20 years together. 20 years!!!
It seems like it was yesterday that I met this long-haired boy (yes, long-haired) who was studying in my university… and many countries, many adventures and two kids later, we are still going strong.
Getting married was never our thing. We don’t have anything against marriage, we never had the need for it. But this year, we wanted to mark our 20 years together with family and friends (I will share more about our celebrations later on) and we will be having a party at the beginning of August. I can’t wait!
We are planning something simple, something rustic, something familiar. I wanted to make some decorations. Nothing too complicated. Something simple and pretty so I armed myself with some washi tape and candles.
I got these vanilla candles from Ikea. I love the smell of vanilla. There is something warm and familiar about them.
Once I decided on the color scheme for the day (blue -of course- and other pastel colors) I covered the base of the night lights with washi tape.
I have also enlisted my whole family to give me all glass containers they have to put the candles in. A up-cycled jam-jar and some ribbons are the perfect recipient for pretty candles, don’t you think?
These decorations are easy to make and pretty around the house, for garden events, for a romantic night in.
If you are having problems removing the super sticky stickers from the jar, this is the only recipe you need.
