4 Charming Uses For Your Candles
Because they're not just for brownouts
Lighting a candle helps create different moods in any given space. It evokes intimacy and romance, especially when lit during a dinner for two. It can also create a relaxing ambience, like that in a spa. If you love collecting candles, you can turn them into whimsical decor for your space. Whether you light them or not, here are different ways on how you can use one or two at home:
1. As a centerpiece in the living area
Layer different pillar candles placed on candleholders in different sizes. You can corral them on a tray to make your vignette look put-together. As a finishing touch, you can add a small vase of flowers or small pots of succulents. Just keep these simple to keep your vignette from looking over-the-top.
2. To add charm to a dining table
Candles on the dining table don't always have to taper ones that are placed on gold or silver candelabras. Pillar candles can be paired with simple accessories. But unlike on the coffee table where you can layer your candles, it is best to keep them at a low height on the dining table so they won't get in the way of a lovely conversation.
3. As dramatic garden decor
And we're not just talking about candles in lanterns. Feel free to get creative on your choice of vessel for your candle. Tea light candles can be placed inside old bottles, jars, or even old teacups. If you're using votive candles, you can wrap your votive holder in twine to add a rustic touch.
4. To spruce up a bathroom counter
Create a beautiful vignette on your bathroom counter by corralling your toiletries, like hand soap and lotion, along with a few towels on a tray. Include a scented candle into the mix—you didn't just accessorize your counter, but you also made your bathroom fragrant and relaxing!
