Raw Manzanita Branches +
Dried Flowers + silver floral spray (or paint), light blue translucent paper, scissors, candle holders, and a glue gun
The Finished Product:
Schuyler's Silver & Tiffany Blue Menorah
Keep in mind that this doesn't have to be used as a menorah and can serve as a gorgeous candleholder for any table... And depending on your dishes, there is so much you can do to spice it up and make it reflect your style. For some reason I keep picturing the branch in gold with hot pink flowers paired with Anna Weatherley's dishes.
I personally love silver and tiffany blue (as it matches my china), so I took that route.
I found the manzanita branches at a store in the 20's which apparently does the flower/plant backgrounds for Gossip Girl. I found the rest of the supplies within NYC except the candle holders which I ordered off a german site per Martha Stewart.
And here it is paired with my China and Challah plate (in the same color) for a party for two. I'm still waiting on my linens, place mats and Tiffany blue napkins.
Notice the touch of blue in the Dransfield & Ross Dragonfly Napkin Holders.
I was so crazy about the blue that I placed an extra flower in my mini-challah (called a snail).
