Light Those Candles!

I have been blessed with an overabundance of tea lights from my sister in law’s wedding.  I love having candles lit in the home.  It makes the home feel warm and cozy.  I even light them all when I am home by myself.  Summer is also a great time to create ambiance outdoors.

I am not really sure the point of this post but I just wanted to share and encourage you to pull out all those candles you have hiding somewhere…and start enjoying them…even if you are home alone!

I remember going to a friend’s house for dinner with my husband and she said she and her husband were so excited to have friends over so they could light their candles!  I remember thinking that was so silly!  If lighting your candles make you happy…do it more often!

Clustered together, these little flames make a big statement.

And a whole bunch on a plate are even more dreamy…and moveable.

Do you light your candles?

  1. Nope... My husband freaks if a candle is lit, I light he blows out, it's a vicious cycle I tell ya... He is worried about the fire hazard aspect... I found a happy medium though... I bought a few Scentsy warmers and turn them on in the evening, at least I get a nice glow and yummy smell... hahahah

  2. I love my scentsy's, but there is nothing better than a flicker of a real candle going that just makes home feel more like home. I like the WoodWick candles that crackle as they burn. Candles are the best and you are right...I should burn mine more often!

  3. ABSOLUTELY I love lighting my candles! I have a bunch of candles in tall glass vases/hurricane laterns. I think it gives my home a certain calm ambiance. I also like to light tea candles outside in the summer. I put them in small mason jars filled with sand (So they don't tip).

  10. careful putting a bunch of tea lights together like that on a tray. my husband did that and started a fire. when he tried to extinguish it, the was flew everywhere and was burning on the walls. thankfully he got the fire out but was scraping wax off the walls forever in the bathroom where he took the tray to. we moved a few years later and are sure there is wax still on the walls which were quite high.

  12. I love candle light in my garden, home and especially on the porch... we light candles everyday... sometimes just a few tea lights in the window or on a shelf highlighting some favorite treasures, but most days we light the place up pretty good! I always count as I light them and then count again as I blow them out, my little safety tip! Fun post, thank you for sharing, it was nice to see you today :)

  15. I love lighting candles, my husband just calls them fire hazards! Mainly, I light them when he is not home, when the "girls" are over, and holidays.

  16. We hardly ever burn candles (slightly paranoid) but I love the try with all the tea lights, that would be great for a party!

  17. I ligth candles just about every night. After a long day at work, nothing relaxes me more than a lit candle on a table or countertop.

    I just bought some new ones from Anthropologie and they are fab!
