Perfect Pillars

I love using pillar candles anytime, but they are especially delightful during Christmas.  One favorite is to place a pillar surrounded by ribbons, bows, or decorative balls in a favorite crystal bowl.  This makes a great centerpiece for a dining table or coffee table.  An accented crystal bowl is perfect for a foyer lamp table or a sideboard/buffet decoration.  It can be elevated for deeper effect.

Our large Vintage glass vase or one that you have that is of similar size and shape can be beautifully displayed filled with holiday ornaments of any variety. Two colors look fabulous here or use all one color to make a bold statement.  Great on a mantle, buffet table, island, etc.

Decorate your pillars with ribbon; be bold!  This tiny gold ribbon is affixed with glue dots and can enhance any pillar candle.  Paired with this wrapped 3 x 3 pillar is a taller 2 inch diameter pillar surrounded by gold round ornaments.  I love this simple, elegant look!

Our 8 inch Adorn vase is shown here with an Ivory pillar and cranberries; also pictured is a flared cylinder with a taper candle and berries; this is one of my most admired festive looks.  Of course you can use any size vase or cylinder and nuts, small pinecones, cumquats, etc.  Use what you love!

LED pillars are perfectly paired with fresh evergreen and pyracantha branches in a pedestal vase.  Red, white, and green always means Christmas!

Remember:  Pillars are perfect for your holiday decorating-create with what you have and enjoy!
