Reuse and Recycle

For decorative accents, Little Miss Party often relies on household items. Inspired by Martha Stewart, Kertzner and Bachman convert hand soap pump containers, glass milk bottles and coffee or oatmeal tins into vases. They also use mason jars as candleholders and recommend spraying each jar with Pam before placing and lighting the candle inside. That way, the candle will slide out easily without melting and sticking to the jar.
