why don’t we – brighten up with candles

Happy Birthday Candles

Happy Friday! I am normally a huge fan of party candles, and after a week of evenings getting noticeably darker – I’ve found myself especially drawn to lighting them. I may have had 15 different candles lit throughout the house one night this week! Pretty sure I almost set the fire alarm off;)

Candles are the perfect way to brighten up anything from a cupcake to an entire room. So why don’t we brighten up the longer nights by building a collection of noteworthy candles?

Here are some of my favorite candles to buy and DIY:

Candles in pretty cups make a gorgeous statement for fall

Harvest rugby striped candlesor make them yourself, we did!

I love this Be Dazzling candle by Kate Spade

Glitter candles for a cake

Tapers in sand never get old


Pretty party candles by the dozen

Painted concrete holders

Tea lights in wisks – very fun

PS. Short on time? You can turn almost anything into a candle – it is one of my favorite things to do. Try it yourself with nuts, fruit, colored pencils,corks and matches. Just please always be careful when wielding fire filled cakes. Happy lighting!
