Candles

bedroom candles

I use candles all over the house.  I have a pretty wall holder beside my tub, and keep some on the edge of the tub as well.  I have tall candlesticks on my dresser, and another set on a bedside table.  They’re in the dining room and living room too.  I even have a tall wicker set on my deck.  There is just something so peaceful about having flickering candles nearby.  I also have seasonable candle holders that I bring out in various sizes, so I’ve learned to buy quite a variety of my candles in bulk.

Candle Holders

Beside my tub, mounted fairly low, I keep a wall sconce that holds two candles.  I like this one for its modern style. Sometimes I add a little votive or two on the side of the tub too, there’s nothing like leaning back and relaxing in a hot bath to the soothing flicker of candlelight.

I have crystal candlestick holders on my dresser and in my livingroom, and a crystal candelabra in the bedroom too.  I love crystal paired with candlelight. These candlesticks have a lovely simple design and are a great price.  These would make a great gift, especially with some candles!

This a very pretty candlestick. Wood candlestick holders are a beautiful contrast to crystal.  I have a pair in my bedroom that I love.

Candles mounted on the wall reflect light beautifully. This wall candle sconce measures7 inches (Width) x 7 inches (L) x 34 inches (Height) and will add a touch of vintage to your space.

For the candles themselves, I like to buy in bulk – and don’t forget to use candle adhesive if you need help making your candles stand up straight.

You’ll be surprised how fast you can go through a large set of tapers if you have enough candlesticks!

If you’re tired of your candles flopping around in their candle holders, just put a dab of this adhesive under the candle and you’ll have nice straight tapers. I use this  stuff all the time, and not just for tapers!
