First you can use candle holders. You may use hanging fixtures or wall sconces to be able to hang them on walls, platters, or trays to make them as your centerpiece, candelabras, bowls, or votive displays to make your candles float. These holders are very useful because they can also collect the wax that has melted from the candles, thus keeping your tables and floors clear from any melted wax drippings.
Second you can add accents to your candles in display. Accents are ideal in adding color and texture to the candle you are using. You may use river rocks, flower petals and glass or acrylic beads to add accent to your candle display. You can do this by having a theme for your display. If for example your theme is for a beach wedding, then you can place your candle display in the middle of a platter that has beach sand on it and decorate its surroundings with some seashells to create a realistic beach theme.
Lastly you can make your candles ideal for the holiday by surrounding your fireplace mantel and dining table with red candles and placing them on glass holders. To produce an autumn effect you can add some leaves and gourds on your candle display. For Christmas, you can use red and green candles on your centerpiece with poinsettias and other accessories that depicts the season.
These are just examples of how you can use candle accessories to make your candle displays more decorative and appropriate for the occasion that you are preparing them for. Enjoy decorating your candles and your home.
