Holiday Decorating with Colonial Candle

I often hear friends say they are not crafty so I thought I'd demonstrate how easy it is to create a holiday centerpiece using candles and a few items you likely already have around the house. We created three different looks and choose Colonial Candle because their aromas are intoxicating, the highly-scented candles burn cleanly and evenly, and they have a large selection of scents and styles from which to choose.

For this elegant centerpiece we used a gold basket decorated with one strand of beaded garland, and 4 and 6" pillar candles, and oval glass votives in Scarlet Amaryllis and Turbinado and Cream and voila ~



For a simpler, outdoorsy look, we decorated a square boxwood wreath with white berry garland and placed the 4 and 6" pillars and oval votive in Turbinado and Cream on a lucite stand to give them some added height. 



For a buffet arrangement or table centerpiece, we set a cake stand in the center of a colorful ornament wreath, and again used the 4 and 6" Colonial Candle pillars, and the oval votive in Turbinado and Cream. A few loose mini ornaments complete the look. This would also look beautiful with the Joyful Noel pillars in red.



Each centerpiece took about 3 minutes to pull together and the look can be changed with each season. If you haven't experienced Colonial Candles scents, I highly recommend them. I have a slight addiction to Turbinado and Cream! I'm pretty sure its sweet and sugary notes of cinnamon, creamy buttermilk and caramel are going to sell my home! The fragrant candles we used are priced at $12.50 for 3x4" pillar, $14.50 per 3x6" pillar, and $3.00 per oval votive. All varieties and fragrances and many more are available at colonialcandle.com.
