The Impact of Candles

I love candles and I'm sure many, if not most of you, do too! I love the flickering, the soft lighting, which is both calming, relaxing and at times viewed in a romantic light (if you'll excuse the pun!). What I don't like is the awful mess that candles can leave - the wax drips all over the place, most of which are an absolute nightmare to remove. I've therfore looked at various options on how to enjoy the elegance, peace and tranquility of candlelight sans (without) mess .... Here are a few great examples:

Essentially these are all glass containes or vases in which pillar candles are placed - you still get the soft light, the flickers, the romance, if you will, but without the mess. In fact I've resorted to buying candles which are already in glass containers, or otherwise containers sturdy enough to handle candles .......
Another option of course, is to use fairy lights, over a picture frame, a mirror or even in a glass container, such as this example ....
Try different options and see what works best for you and your home, but always be careful with candles and do not leave them burning in an unattended room.
