Decorations for Summer Parties

star floating candlesWith the 4th of July coming right around the corner many people are looking for patriotic decorating ideas for their parties.  Lots of decorative accents in red, white, and blue will be used on tables, walls, doors, and windows.  We have a lot of red, white, and blue candles to add to your home decor for the summer holidays but two new products we have found,  really stand out.  There are red, white, and blue star shaped floating candles in 2 sizes, and a 3 piece set of frosted votive cups with red, white, and blue stars on them.  The votive cups will hold a standard size votive candle.  The light shinning through the star shaped cutouts create a really neat light show.  These new candles and candle holders will really make decorating for your summer parties easy.

Another very simple way to decorate for summer is using red, white, and blue pillar candles on a mirror with some beaded garland.  Using pillars of varying heights will make a better display. Since we have very affordable candles that are made in the U.S.A., you can put together an attractive display with quality candles at a great price.

Votive Candle Inserts Eliminate The Mess

New unscented soy votive inserts virtually eliminate the need to clean leftover wax out of your votive holders.  These thick poly carbonate inserts are the same size as a standard votive candle so they will fit in all the same holders.  When the unscented soy candle is used up in the insert, just recycle it.  These votive candles can also be used without a holder because they have a flat base.  Votive candle inserts should be burned on a heat resistant surface so they won’t damage the table tops when the flame gets near the bottom.  They are less expensive than buying a candle and a holder separately so they make ideal wedding decorations for brides on a budget.  These unscented soy candles will burn for 12 hours.  These soy candles are a big benefit to places that burn a lot of candles often like restaurants and places that host banquets or events.  You can save tons of time getting wax residue and wick tabs out of the bottom of your holders by just replacing the insert.

Butterfly Kisses Unity Candle Set

Brand new unity candle and matching taper set for weddings. This new set is original and unique. The butterflies on these wedding candles look like they could flutter away at any moment.

You can get this wedding candle set for only $39.00. The holders are sold separately.

Floating Candles

floating candlesOne of the questions we get quite often from our customers is regarding floating candles, or rather candles that float. The question is usually along the lines of ” What makes the candle float or Will any candle float?” There is a pretty consistent look of surprise when we explain to them that just about all candles will “float”. (I say “just about” since I’m sure somewhere there is a candle that won’t) It is not the shape or size of the candle that makes it float but the fact that wax is lighter than water. The shape of a floating candle is important since that determines if the wick will stay out of the water. You could put one of our biggest pillar candles, 6×9, in a tub of water and it will float, only it will float on its side, putting the wicks under water.
