With the holidays not far away, I wanted to do a post about candles, which are often a popular gift idea during the holidays.
Lets face it decorating with candles can be a wonderful and relatively inexpensive way to decorate. Candles come in various sizes and shapes and can be used for various purposes and that’s what I’m gonna share with you today some tips on how to select the size of your candle using candles and candle holders found at one of my favorite places for fabulous finds Pier One Imports.
FUNCTION: If you are choosing a candle for function it will work best if you choose a larger sized candle. Larger sized candles not only are a great source of light, but can also be grounded in a space using large scale holders.
SIZE: Medium size candles can be very useful as well and will be relatively easy to find in different scents as well as colors.
AMBIANCE: Now smaller candles. Smaller candles are often used more for ambiance and locations where you may not need a lot of light such as a bathroom. Inexpensive votive candles can be used the same way.
FORMALITY: Lastly taper candles. These candles have an air of formality about them and they tend to be used for example for slim holders on a dinner table.
