Candles have long been a favored accent in homes and in the backyard. They conjure images of romantic dinners, festive occasions or sitting in their soft glow on a stormy night when the lights go out. Decorating with candles is an easy way to enhance your home and outdoor spaces.
When decorating with candles, unless you are planning an intimate dinner at a table for two, throw out the adage that less is more. With candles, more is more. Setting candles out in groups not only provides more illumination but makes greater decorative impact. Whether you are decorating the mantel, the dinner table, the coffee table or the patio, assembling a group of at least three candles makes more impact.
If you like repurposing or simply creating things on your own, there are many ways you can convert regular household items in candleholders. Wine bottles make classic candleholders. Mason jars can be embellished with different papers and trims for original candleholders. Use glass jars and vases to mix other elements in with candles to create unique displays.
When choosing candleholders, don’t limit yourself to the ordinary. Various containers, jars, bottles and decorative accessories can make great bases for candles.
Nothing says casual outdoor party like mason jar candles. String them along the fence or hang them from the trees for a festive touch.
Candles are a versatile and stylish way to add charm and ambiance to any occasion, indoors or out. They bring an extra element to a decorative display and add a touch of romance to the dinner table. Candles, when displayed creatively, offer that distinctive special touch to the home and patio.
