27 Dec Candle Round-Up
There is something universally comforting about a fire. The warmth, the gentle light, and the soft crackling of the flames create a sense of security. Even if you don’t have a working fireplace in your home, you can still enjoy the pleasures of a fire on a dark and chilly night with some strategically-placed candles.
Fill An Empty Fireplace
So maybe you have a fireplace which is no longer functional, or you just don’t want to go to the effort of building a whole fire. In either case, you can lay your hearth with candles instead of logs. Update this popular trend by foregoing the usual plain while pillars for elegant votive holders with a metallic accent.

Stage A Vignette
You aren’t limited by the presence of a hearth or a big dining table. You can lay out a vignette with candles just about anywhere – a desk, a bookshelf, a bedside table, a kitchen counter. Pair your candles with books, greenery, or a decorative tray to make a statement that will look great even when the flames are out.
