Decorating with Candles
Create a festive note of welcome in the entry hall or foyer with a large white or red pillar on a footed hurricane with berried holly leaves nestled around the base.
Mantels are typically the focus of most holiday décor arrangements. They’re the perfect spot for groupings of tapers or pillars in metallic candlesticks of varying height, surrounded by a sweep of evergreen boughs. Consider using red or white candles to offset the foliage, along with hand-blown or patterned ornaments for additional color, sparkle and focal interest.
Holiday meals – from informal family get-togethers to formal dinner parties – are at the heart of most holiday celebrations and the natural setting for candles. Dinner table arrangements shouldn’t compete with the enjoyment of food or conversation. That means arrangements that won’t block your view of others at the table, and unscented candles that won’t vie with the aromas of your meal.
For formal dinners, there’s nothing more dramatic or pleasing than a table that sparkles. A simple but elegant centerpiece might incorporate an oblong glass bowl of ornaments, or greenery and pinecones, surrounded by tealights in faceted glass holders and set upon a mirror. Dim the lights, light the candles and allow the faceted glass and mirror reflect the glow of the candlelight for a radiant shimmer.
Buffet tables and casual family meals call for simpler centerpieces. Place a series of handsome pillars on a flat ceramic or metal tray flanked by small vases of red carnations or poinsettias for an appealing seasonal tableau.
Make Your Holidays Safe
Accidental candle fires increase four-fold during the holiday season, so the National Candle Associations urges all consumers to take special care with candles during the holidays.
Always keep a burning candle within your sight. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Be especially careful with flammable decorations or placing candles too close to Christmas greenery or Christmas trees.
Always use a candleholder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy and big enough to collect dripping wax. Never place pillars or any candles directly on furniture, whether glass or wood, or directly on greenery.
Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch before lighting or re-lighting, and keep the wax-pool free of wick trimmings, dust, matches and debris at all times. Too-long wicks can cause uneven burning, smoking and dripping.
