Transform an ordinary table into a chic dining spot with these simple steps. Decorate the area around the centerpiece with contemporary block letters that spell out "LOVE" or the bride's/couple's names. Then add DIY tropical tea-light holders, created from small white dipping dishes filled with sand and a colorful tea light.
