'Tis the Season for Cozy Evenings by Candlelight'
It's the start of December and candle season is upon us.
As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, there's nothing quite like the warm, flickering glow of a candle to create a cosy atmosphere in your home. Look no further than the power of candlelight.
Whether you're curling up with a good book, enjoying a romantic dinner, or simply taking a relaxing bath, the soft, gentle light of a candle can offer a sense of comfort and calm that's hard to beat. In this article, we'll explore the magic of candlelight, share some tips for creating the perfect candlelit atmosphere, and ideas for choosing the perfect Candles & candlesticks and creating beautiful arrangements.
Centrepieces and Tablescapes
When it comes to creating a beautiful candlestick centrepiece, the possibilities are endless. You could start with a simple arrangement of candlesticks in different heights, or mix and match for a more eclectic look. To add some colour and texture, try surrounding your candles with greenery, and flowers, or using other decorative elements such as different coloured candles.
If you're planning a dinner party, a candle centrepiece can be a great way to set the mood. Try using candles in shades that complement your table linens and dinnerware that evoke the season or a particular theme. For a winter themed party, for example, you might opt for candles in shades of white and green such as our Juniper Green or Les Verts range.
Decorative Candle Holders and Displays
If you want to take your candle game to the next level, consider using unique candlesticks or displays. One-of-a-kind candle holders that reflect your personal style and taste, like our beautiful Ombo Candlesticks which are one of our personal favourites. Or, for a more elegant look, consider using glass or crystals to add some sparkle and shine - Horus Candlestick.
The studio where we live has beautiful arched windows with old white shutters. As the nights have well and truly drawn in, I light candles in the windows to add an extra glow.
There really is no light better than candlelight.
