With the holiday season rapidly approaching, it’s time to start planning the perfect centerpiece for your holiday table. Pillar candles are a simple and inexpensive way to add dramatic lighting and beauty to your table. With so many colors, sizes, and fragrance options to choose from, it’s easy to find pillar candles that will match any centerpiece.
When selecting the best pillar candles for your table, decide what colors and shapes will work best with the look that you are trying to achieve. If you are going for a traditional holiday look, try adding red, green or metallic looking candles. Be sure not to select candles that are too tall or too wide, or they may take up too much of the table and prevent your guests from easily talking to each other.
Unlike smaller votive candles, pillar candles don’t need to be set in a container; instead they can be set directly onto the table, although you may want to use a decorative plate or other item to prevent any accidental wax drips on the surface. Try adding a few candles to a centerpiece containing garland, holiday ornaments or other decorative touches. Adding a gentle glow to your table will provide a touch of elegance and class, without having to spend a lot of money.
Using scented candles in a centerpiece will add even more excitement to your table. Try using a familiar cinnamon apple or vanilla scent to compliment the aromas of the food being served. Before the holiday meal, trying experimenting with several different scents to find the ones that are best for you. For a little variety, trying mixing scented and non-scented pillar candles for that perfect small touch of fragrance that won’t overpower your guests.
When selecting the best pillar candles for your holiday table, be sure to buy those that are made with high quality ingredients, insuring a long burn time and maximum fragrance. With proper care, your candles will last throughout the holidays, making your centerpiece the focal point of any meal.
