Creating a candlescape is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to transform a room into a welcoming sanctuary. All it takes is a flat surface and an array of candles in every shape and size, arranged just how you like it. Still feeling in the dark? Let us light the way with out top tips for creating candlescapes using our perfectly-priced candles.
1. HOT SPOTS Location is key when candlescaping. Display candles where they can create lots of visual impact, yet are not at risk of being bumped. Dining tables, sturdy coffee tables or fireplace mantels are excellent options. Use temperature-safe holders or large plates, and be sure to keep candles spaced at least two inches apart to reduce excessive heat and dripping.
Quick Tip: A well-positioned wall mirror reflects candlelight beautifully. Also, a small- or medium-sized mirror can be laid flat to function as a reflective candleholder.
2. SCENTS & SENSIBILITY No room decor is really complete until you’ve included a signature scent. Peruse our selection of fragrant candles in various sizes and to infuse your room with soothing aromas. Stick to just one at a time to avoid muddled scents.
Quick Tip: When food is being served, use unscented candles to avoid competing with aroma of the dishes.
3. MORE IS MORE (WITH CANDLE DECOR)! To build a truly eye-catching centerpiece, group several candles of varying heights together–at least three for a well-balanced look. Using similar color tones creates cohesiveness. Also, try enhancing the visual interest with natural textures.
Quick Tip: Pebbles, sand, marbles or seashells featured at the base of the candle grouping complement the glowing scene gorgeously.
