The Best Way to Present Your Top Quality Candles? Finding and buying those top quality candles can be a bit of a task but when you do find smokeless candles, dripless candles or candles that are both you want to show them at their best. The top combination must be crystal glass holders , especially for dinner candles, but there are alternatives. Why go to the expense of buying crystal candlesticks or crystal candle holders when there are so many cheaper alternatives available? The answer very simply is that when you are prepared to pay that little more for quality candles, displaying them to their best in equally good quality candle holders is a must. Large Pillar Candles Large pillar candles can be displayed in a large holder but more often than not they are placed on a small plate. The safer method is to buy a made for purpose plate that has a central spike that pushes into the centre of the candle to hold it firmly in place. Tealights Tealight holders are found in various colours with just as much variation in decoration. Candle lanterns are made specifically to take tea lights and the combination can look very effective. You may think all tealights are the same quality but you would be wrong. Look out for smokeless and dripless types and you may find they also have longer burn times.

Dinner Candles Dinner candles can be a simple shape such as the beeswax church and altar or the taper, tapered Venetian or Sherwood. A really classy combination is Sherwood dinner candles in crystal candelabra or substitute them for the smaller and elegant Venetians. Alternatively show the Sherwoods in glass candlesticks with simple styling such as a chunky crystal glass or Roman style, the faceted faces usually catch the light and create a very pleasing effect. Look for glass candlesticks being the same style but differing heights. Grouped together they can make a classy looking table centrepiece. A crystal glass candelabra can be used either as a table centrepiece for a dinner party or used on a side table for everyday use supporting unlit candles. Crystal glass candlesticks with their clean lines add a touch of class to a room. Of course both styles make an excellent wedding present or Christmas present.
