Clustering Candles

Almost anything is more visually-interesting when grouped together.  Even the seemingly boring or unimportant item gains respect when put in a formal grouping.  Take for example the humble candlestick.  One or two is nice, but in a group they have more impact.  Group them on a tray or even on an elevated cake stand.  Here I used all glass candlestick holders and candles in various similar shades.

Candles on Mirror Act as Tablerunner You could also group candlesticks on a mirror – the reflectivity makes it all the more magical.  Use a candle grouping on a mirror as a runner on your dining room table.  Here’s a pretty example from Real Simple.

I really like grouping unlike colors of candles, as long as they are the same shape (pillars with pillars, candlesticks with candlesticks).  Mixing them, especially when grouped on a tray is just kind of . . . unexpected. Colored Candles

    i love the look of the candles as a runner on the dining room table. i always use candles when i decorate for a dinner, but never exclusively. and now i’m wondering why! i smell a cooking club tablescape! and it fits perfectly into the theme i’m considering. as always, thanks, kb.
