It's the holiday season and time to trim the tree, hang the stockings with care, and wrap the presents in colorful holiday paper. The table is festive with holiday china, crystal glasses, and a centerpiece of poinsettias. Add in a pair of holiday candles set in gorgeous silver candlesticks and everything is ready for any holiday gathering.
Candlelight lends a soft glow to the room, helping create a festive ambiance. From small tea lights and floating candles to oversized pillar candles, adding candles to holiday décor is a simple way to add a bit of light to the holiday season. Holiday candles are used in a variety of ways to add a special touch to holiday décor. Place a trio of tapers in front of the window for a glow that welcomes in visitors. Use pillar candles on the mantle, twinned with evergreen roping. Tea lights in cut-crystal candle holders are elegant simply sitting on a shelf.
Bring the luminous light of candles outside by placing small tea lights in white paper bags filled with sand to create simple luminaries. Line them up along the driveway or walkway. This holiday candles effect is especially powerful when it snows, but beautiful no matter what the weather. Create a softer ambiance with floating candles. Choose red or green candles to float in a simple crystal bowl. Surround the bowl with evergreen boughs and place poinsettia blooms with the candles for a truly festive look. Brick candles, oversized pillars, and other large candles are a fun way to light a room for the holidays.
Fill the air with the scents of the holiday with scented pillar candles by Fiesta or Yankee Candles. Bold scents like evergreen, bayberry, and spiced cinnamon help bring the holiday feeling home. The candles themselves are beautiful to look at. Use one or more to bring a different feeling to holiday décor. Create that holiday ambiance by adding candlelight.
