This Little Light of (Hopefully!) Mine

Pretty candlesticks are always a graceful addition to any decor, even if you never light a single candle. These handsome acanthus leaf-design candle holders, for instance, shine brightly without being lit:

Dana Candlesticks They’re old-world classic design is brought up to date by being finished in a distressed, sandy stone color with a rough gray wash. The white candles shown are even included!

Whether you use them to illuminate your dinner table or simply grace your sideboard or coffee table, they are sure to be admired on a regular basis.

Of course you’ll glow so brightly over the price that you may not ever need to light the candles. The suggested retail price is $273.00, but you can get them for a lot less at Bellacor. They normally carry them for just $243.00, which is a lot better. Right now, though, you can get the pair for a mere $141.00!

Oh, and remember that you can get free shipping on orders from Bellacor of $75.00 or more.

Friday Finds Under Fifty: The Warm Household Touches Edition

It’s the little things that make a house a home. Small things like napkin rings, candle holders, and picture frames can make a huge difference in how well your home reflects you as a person. Because of that, it behooves us all to do our best to pay attention to the quality and personality of the things we choose to put the finishing touches on our homes.

Verdigris Mini Taper Holder
For instance, these verdigris mini taper candle holders will tell friends and family that you have a fondness for nature, and a love of elegance. Slim candles rise from delicate verdigris trees to light your table gently.

Once upon a time, the candle holders would have cost you $69.00 each, and the candles $16.00 apiece. Now, though, at VivaTerra, the holders are just $48.00 and the pure beeswax candles a mere $6.00 each.

Let There Be Candlelight!

Soft, romantic lighting is a big part of the success of any intimate gathering. Too bright, and the intimacy is gone. Too dark and people start crashing into things, which is enough to dampen any good mood.

Some find the way around this with dimmer switches, but if you’re of a more retro-romance frame of mind, nothing fills the bill like a candelabra.

Savannah Candelabra From Crate and Barrel
This elegant Savannah candelabra is made of galvanized iron using 17th century French wiring techniques. Its graceful arms hold six tapers easily.

Originally priced at $119.00, it can now be yours from Crate and Barrel for a mere $49.95…which means darkness will fail to fall not only over your dinner party, but over your bank account as well.
