Candles come in beautiful designs; also scented candles take the atmosphere to a whole different level. The pleasant scent and the dim flicker of the burning candles never fail to create a warm glow within you and build a sense of appreciation for the occasion and your partner. Whether you are planning for a romantic candle light dinner or simply wanting to decorate your bedroom and bathroom with Valentine’s decoration, adding candles to the scene will definitely make the setup look more dazzling and romantic. Candles come in special wrappings as well that can be used as gifts, candles always carry a special and deep message with them – they are simply elegant and at all times bring a smile to your face.
Candles that are specifically designed for Valentines come in gorgeous shapes, colors and have distinctive candle holders that blend in with the event perfectly. In this post you will be viewing some flawlessly designed candles with their holders – male readers, this could be helpful for you – be inspired and make sure you use at least one of these ideas to make Valentine’s Day special for your loved one.
1. Floating Candles with Petals
This idea is simple, yet artistic and stunning. Get a large bowl or container and fill it up with water, light up small candles that are either plain or shaped into a flower or a heart and drop them in the water. Add some rose petals and let it all float!
2. Tealight Candles
Tealight candles are simple candles that are encase in small metal cups and are widely available. Even though they usually come in white, multicolored tealights can be found too. Arranging these candles in heart shapes or buying elegant holders for these candles and arranging them together will no doubt give your setting the desired effect.
3. Pillar Candles
Decorative pillar candles could be bought and arranged next to the bed, like the picture above shows you could set these candles next to photo frames of you and your loved ones. Pillar candles could also be arranged with a bottle of champagne next to the bath tub – however, make sure you fill the tub with hot water and add a scent to it. And don’t forget the rose petals!
4. Candles & Potpourri
Potpourri and candles are a great combination, try placing scented candles amongst some pebbles and potpourri and let your sanity run wild. Adding incense burners will also help create the mood.
5. Jar Candles
Jar candles have amazing designs made on them, the ones above are a great example. Placing jar candles on your living room table or on your dinner table will look great with the Valentines themes.
6. Candles & Chocolate
Nothing could ever be more romantic than putting candles and chocolate together! You definitely got to give this one a shot.
7. Votive Candles
Although they aren’t much different than placing tealights into beautiful containers, some of these candles come in specially designed votive candle holders, buy love themed votives and make your decoration look marvelous.
8. Magic Candles
Look at this gorgeous candle! Magic candles are a creative innovation in the line of candles, these color changing candles come in all sort of shapes. Such candles will add pure character to the surroundings and make the scene look stunning! Have these candles places by your bedside.
9. Candles in Wine Glasses
One of my personal favorites; candles that come in wine glasses are either gel candles as the one above shows or either normal wax candles. Pick your favorite and lit them on the dinner table where you will have your Valentine dinner served. These candles are bound to give a dramatized effect and will look fabulous among the other cutlery.
10. Valentine Ornament Candles
You can find many valentine ornaments in the market these days, some of them include candles. Finding the right kind of candle that has already been customized according to the theme will do their jobs, however the picture above suggests you to let you imagination run wild. Candles are versatile objects and can easily fit into any scenery, thus take advantage of that and arrange candles in striking shapes. Or you could get pillars and jars and potpourri altogether and combine them. Have a good Valentines!
