Glass Candle Holders: Candles and Holders for the Non-Romantic

Are you thinking to use glass candle holders? Candles and romance are forever tied together, sort of joined at the hip. But if you’re not a true romantic (and let’s face it, most of us only wish we were at convenient times) you probably don’t think about using candles as a primary element in room decorations. But you might want to re-think that.

Candles aren’t the reason to re-think it, though: what you place the candle in is what it’s all about. And think “in”. You can use the usual candle holders that are really just bases to set a candle on . . . or you can step up the style and find glass candle holders that you set a candle in, like a tall glass shape. A sleek fitted bowl. Like adult versions of those tea light cups – with style!

Imagine this: next to your fabulous collection of blue Depression glass you place ten-inch cut glass candle holders. Think about it.

In your eclectic living room (never really left college, did you?) you set three really different candle holders together. Or three identically shaped candleholders in three contrasting colors or three different styles in identical colors (because you really are trying to act grown up).

Dining table – for the holiday centerpiece: use a beautiful footed floating candle bowl as the centerpiece. You can fill it with water and candles, or greenery, napkins, melon balls . . . .

How about Halloween fun? Candles in glass candle holders are the ideal way to add safety and an eerie lighting to your front door.

In that same spirit, they’re wonderful upgrades to the sand-filled paper bags with candles. Use the bags to line your driveway and use candleholders for the porch, deck and entry.

Ugh, that [insert whatever room makes you groan] needs something. Think candleholders. Get one or two in an unusual design, like tall hurricane glasses or rectangular colored glass. Find glass candle holders in unique finishes like mosaic, painted glass or cut aluminum. Use an eye-catching collection of colors, maybe deep moss green, sunshine yellow and burnt orange together.

So that’s it: the best and easiest way to fool those romantics into thinking you’re one of them. And then when you find yourself feeling romantic, well, you’re ready to act like one!
