Brighten Your Party with Candles


This week's tip has been submitted by Irene Garcia.

A creative overflow of candles can be an inexpensive yet elegant way to light up any party! Put them on your bare buffet table to add more excitement and color, throw some on your boring countertops for eyecandy, make a lonely fireplace romantic by placing some inside, and yes even the top of your toilet needs love with a votive or two!

Being creative with what you use to hold the candles and selecting candle colors is really half the fun. The other half is lighting the candles and watching your party glow like no other! Just be mindful of any little hands you may have around you, and never leave lighted candles unattended.

Thanks for the tip, Irene!
