groupings of candles...


One of my favorite ways to decorate for maximum impact is to group a collection
 of items en masse....the glow of candlelight is always my choice during the holidays.

A collection of ideas to inspire you...

There's nothing like the soft glow of candlelight to create a pretty atmosphere.

So many beautiful ideas. You are so right, grouping them en masse has a big impact. I need to get my act together and get decorating!

Crissy @ House of Marlowe said...

I completely agree! We've been eating by candlelight from our advent wreath this past week and I absolutely love it. Some amazing candlesticks have been added to my Christmas wish list so that we can enjoy candlelight dinners all year long!

I love all of your images. I only think of candles when we lose power....I need to do this.

Gorgeous photos and ideas. I also love candles grouped together for maximum impact. I love the square candles in the next to last photo! They're a little different. I also love the yellowy candles in the chunky glasses with greenery around the tops. So lovely!

Agreed. And, it's so much better with real candles over battery-operated!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

I agree too! A bunch of almost anything looks better grouped together! Just saw a large grouping of brass candlesticks grouped together with a vintage ornament on each one...loved it!

Ooooh...these are dreamy, warm, romantic, full of holiday spirit. No way I can pick out my favorite. This also reminds me that I had bought a really unique candleabra of sorts and I need to find very narrow tapers to fill in. Thanks for reminding me of that with this!

With all the dark, grey days here in the pacific northwest, candles are essential and really help lift my spirits;)

Beautiful pictures!

charmaine said...

Lori said...

Such pretty photos. I love them all- rustic to elegant.

Leslie said...

Hi Pam!

Well.. now I feel that I need either photography lessons or a good designer to set all this up Lol!!

Anyway, SO much eye candy here and so festive. Love it all.

Have a wonderful Sunday and keep your stress in check ha!!

I love all these pictures! As an event planner I spent forever after events soaking the remaining candle wax out of holders until I discovered that if you spray non stick cooking spray into your candle holder then drop in your candle when your party is over you can just pop out the remaining candle without the mess!

Great plan! I was already looking for a couple for an area, think the grouping will be lovely in that spot. Off to Tuesday Morning I go, once i return from the midwest...... Thanks, m'dear!
