5 Types of Candles to Keep in Your Home

5 Types of Candles to keep in your home

I like to have a few different kinds of candles around to help me set the perfect mood for whatever I might have planned, get together with friends, dinner party etc.
Candles have the power to change the look and feel of a place, not just add fragrance. You can dimly illuminate a room to create a mood. It truly can elevate the look of a room. Candles have come a long way and you can get them in so many different shapes and sizes, colors and fragrances.

Votives

A smaller candle usually around 1 ½ inches tall and 2” in diameter. You should always place in a holder of some sort before lighting. To create a nice visual, put several together in a grouping to add to your décor. You can make a statement when friends come over when you have several lined up on your dining room table or mantle.

Tealights

These are smaller than votives, and also need to be put in a container before you light. Tealights are a great accent when spread throughout in groups.

Pillar

Typically burns 3-4 hours and must be put in or on a candle stick holder. A great way to add a little romance with a candle lit dinner.

Filled candles

These come in a glass jar and are larger than the votives. It adds a nice touch when placed on a coffee table book in your family room, or lining the pathway to your front door for a grand entrance.

Floating candles

These are perfect center pieces and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You can add flowers around the candles for a beautiful pop of color, even stones, sand or beads for texture. The glow of fire on water is an incredible combination and a stunning accent.

    Glass jar candle is fantastic. Burned most of the way down. So happy to find the original scents I remember.
