How To Make a Creative Candleholder

How to make an Artichoke Candleholder decoration
1). Buy Artichokes fresh. They are in season in the Spring and early Summer.

Cut off the stem to make a level base. Use a sharp knife. For recommendations on knives, see Chef Lou’s top Kitchen Gadgets

Next, cut off the top because it looks more clean.

Open it up, hollow out a space for your candle and remove the inner leaves.

Complete! Great for rustic and modern table decorations.

Refined Rustic Details

When a bride asks for rustic, we like to think of it as rustic refined.
We love rustic because it reminds us of home. We don’t particularly like country kitsch. 
Here’s how Savory does Rustic without boring :)



TEXTURES! Rustic to us means bringing in lots of varied textures.
Burlap, fresh maple leaves, moss, florals, coffee beans (plus it makes it smell so delicious), flax seeds, pumpkin seeds in apothecary jars.

 We hollowed out artichokes to use as candle-holders. Stay tuned this week for this super easy DIY!

Whenever possible we love to use fruit as accent to the buffet decor. Recall this wedding, with lemons as decorations?

Bark tree vases with dried florals.

Rustic herb flavored water: just a little bit of flavoring so it is not too overpowering :). Delicious and refreshing.
