are super easy to make and quite frugal. Not only are they
a wonderful favor, but the add to the décor of any
table. I made over 100 in about an hour for a friends wedding,
and the looked beautiful on the tables. Once again supplies
came from the dollar store, a frugal brides favorite store!
Change the colours to suit you needs these where done in classic
votive holders ($1 each)
White Tea light candles (bag of 200 for $5.99)

who does calligraphy you could get them to do it, if not
use a gel pen.
Center the card on the holder attach using a dab of glue
at each corner.
the ribbon to fit around the base of the holder and attach
with a dab of hot glue.
a candle in the bottom of each holder.
the flowers from their stems.
one flower in each holder.
could also be done one for each couple to help cut down
on costs too but $128.98 for 100 of these cute favors is
still very frugal, plus they do double duty as table decorations
and look very elegant.
