Lighted centerpiece

A table decoration is not complete if there are no candles on it. The versatility of these candles can be incorporated into the most diverse and creative ways in center pieces worthy of any professional decorator: just add a bunch of candles of different sizes (the same color or monochrome) and have a tray or place in a basket, displaying a row of tealights from one end of the table to the other is casual but elegant, a plate with several floors displaying candles becomes really tasty as well as a set of small candles floating in a bowl with water and some flowers. Just choose, shine and light!

Trapped in the cage

One of the current trends in interior decoration is the exhibition, inside the house, of empty vintage bird cages. To achieve a very cottage-chic look, fill the cage with some candles. By day the cage will be object of curiosity and conversation, and at night will be a nice company.

Lanterns light

Is there anything more charming than lanterns lit by candles and strategically placed on the windowsills, inside or outside the home? Using flashlights to display and light candles is still a safe way to have them spread a little around the house, from the kitchen to the office, going through the toilet / bathroom.
