Decorating with candles is quick way to build an elegant, cohesive space for the Holiday Season.  Tablescape, mantle, or entryway – a unified color story is foolproof every time. Read on for a few of our favorites candles and their lighting counterparts.

As the cooler weather blows in and the sun dips earlier in the day, why not decorate your cottage, cabin or home with candles adding warmth and ambiance to the space. Fall is the perfect time to collect colorful leaves outside and harness their warmth when decorating with candles. For example, you could use a copper tray to display leaves or flowers in red, yellow and orange with short amber or clay colored candles. Iyou just can't let go of summer yet, fill your garden bistro table with fall leaves and pine cones and place votive candles in between. The mirrored tray will capture and reflect the light, creating an inviting centerpiece on the dining room table.

Using special items around the house for unique and unexpected uses is a great way to show off your creativity!  Look for an urn, a finial or a pedestal bowl  to place on a table in your entrance or foyer to welcome guests with the smell of cinnamon.  If using a clear container, fill with acorns or cranberries first, then using wooden florist wire as sticks, attach fruits of the season and fill in with flowers.  Surround your tall container with pedestal candle holders with cinnamon scented candles.  Greeting guests with fragrances of the season adds a nice touch to any home decor.

Taper candles in lush colors will always heighten the look of your dining table for any season.  I love these simple taper holders in ceramic and brass we just brought in as they are simple yet classic look and your eye really takes you to these tall pretty candles which i like to place in different sizes for an even more inviting look.



Since the Holiday Season is almost upon us, let's talk Balsam please.  I live in the Adirondack Mountains so we are surrounded by the wonderful scents of pine and balsam.  This amazing candle collection from Skeem Designs stylishly brings the outdoors inside. Candles, incense, and matches are all scented with a classic Sweet Balsam exclusive scent, a blend of evergreens highlighted with top notes of spring bulbs and pinecones.  Scented matches not only light your candles in style, but they will also infuse the entire room with their perfume as their scent mixes subtly with the burning wood of the matchstick.

So let's talk about ways to light your pretty soy candles.  We discovered this hand blown glass cloche filled with matches from Skeem Design we knew it was perfect for us. Each piece is hand blown and fitted with a cork stopper in the bottom. It reminds us of a vintage glass cloche, originally used to protect emerging seedlings in gardens. Once the matches are gone, it can be a curiosity used to display a found specimen.  Pretty right, and perfect for gift giving with any candle you choose.  



 So I guess you can say I do have a thing for beautiful scented candles.  Soy candles are a favorite for us environmentally conscious people because they are not made from petroleum like paraffin candles. Burning of soy candles does not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere. We love this collection of candles from these amazing companies as their useful products in beautiful vessels eliminate excess packaging, and are produced as much in the US.
