Use candles to create multi-dimensional focal points in a room.
Candles come in a great variety of sizes. There are wide, short, tall, thin, and medium sized candles, each available in many different colors. You can arrange candles of different heights and sizes to create dimensional focal points on a table, fireplace mantle, mirror shelf, or wherever candles will safely fit. Place the candles from the smallest to the largest in groups of three to five candles to create an appealing display.
Use candles to enhance other decor items.
Floral arrangements, photos, paintings, and figurines seem to come to life when a candle is nearby. Light the candles in the evening to illuminate special centerpieces. Taper candles, pillar candles, or globe candles do a great job of highlighting other eye-catching items of your decor.
Create an intimate mood with candles.
In a romantic setting, add votives around a hot tub, bath, or bedroom to set the mood. For best results and longer burning times, always use votive holders. Use multiple votives of the same or various colors to create a more elaborate candle setting.
Set the mood for holiday gatherings with candles.
For holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, set the mood for your gatherings with scented candles. Some great scents for the holidays are cinnamon, vanilla, apple, cranberry, cookies, and other holiday delights.
Extend a party theme with candles.
For parties, buy scented or unscented candles that are colorful and fit for the occasion. Brighten an anniversary party with white, green, or beige candles, which are decorative without drawing too much attention. Use pink or blue candles for kids’ parties. Red, orange, green, white, or beige candles work well for the holidays. For a poolside party, use floating tealight candles to light up the pool and dazzle your guests.
Craft your own candles.
If you enjoy decorating your home with homemade crafts, create your own candle decorations. You can decorate plain candles any way you want. You can also tie ribbons around several candles to bind them in a decorative pose. Use saucers, flowerpots, old lanterns, and so forth to create your own unique candleholders. Create the type of decor you want in every room with a little creativity.
Blend colorful, sweet smelling candles throughout your decor to add beauty to every room of your home. You can find a variety of scented candles, unscented candles, votives, tealights, globe candles, taper candles, and pillar candles online to suit your needs.
