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 some flickering effects to holiday décor is a simple way to add a bit of mesmerising light to the holiday season.
Here are eight ways to add that magical touch:
1- Place a trio of tapers in front of the window for a glow that welcomes in visitors.
2- Use pillar candles on the mantle, twinned with evergreen roping
3- Tea lights in cut-crystal candleholders are elegant simply sitting on a shelf
4- Place small tea lights in white paper bags filled with sand to create simple luminaries. Line them up along the driveway or walkway
5- 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
6- Brick candles, oversized pillars and other large candles are a fun way to light a room for the holidays
7- Fill the air with scented candles, not only do bold smells 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.
8- A candle bridge is a lovely traditional way to decorate a window or table during the holidays. Whether it’s one with a seasonal theme like a snowflake design or something in warm wood, it will make a lovely addition.
