Candles are great additions to your décor theme because they provide warm ambient lighting. Keeping candles lit has become more convenient with the development of flameless candle technology, which emits a soft light that’s virtually indistinguishable from real candles. Here are 3 reasons to inspire you to decorate different areas of your home with candles.

To Create a Warm Welcome

Candles help set a relaxed mood for any occasion. Make your guests feel at home by placing candle lanterns in your entryway. With a vintage appeal that is sophisticated and soothing to the eyes, these holders can be used both indoors or just outside your door for an ambience that is friendly and inviting.

Placing lanterns on your window sills is another way to heighten the homey feel. Most lanterns come with covers to protect the candles within from wind or rain.

To Have a Lovely Dining Experience

A candlelight setup makes a stylish centerpiece on your dining table. Use wine glasses, flutes, or other glass containers as a unique way to house your candles and give your space that festive yet relaxed ambience. You can also choose simple and versatile metal-and-glass candle holders that can match any tablescape theme.

For meals held al fresco, the gentle glimmer of candlelight can complement your natural surroundings. In an outdoor setting, enhance your dinner experience under a starry sky with flameless candles that won’t easily topple over or be blown out by the wind.

For more formal settings, tall elegant candlesticks are a classic addition to your table setting. Place them beside one or a few flower arrangements for a beautifully styled look.

To Establish a Cozy Mood

The soft, flickering light of a candle can also be a calming sight when you relax during quiet evenings. Display sturdy candle holders in your living room and lounge or reading area. Place them on a mantel or high shelf to lend a cozy ambience to your space.
