This simple project is made by soaking cloth doilies in sugar starch and then forming it around a balloon. One the starch dries, pop the balloon and you have a romantic tea light holder that can be used as part of your tablescape.
This is a simple lamp shade that has been decorated with buttons. I can do something similar to this. You can decorate with buttons in lots of ways, for example covering everything with buttons (top photo) or dangling them from the bottom.
