Want to know something ridiculous?!?
I have always styled my home for the holidays filled with pretty candles, and I never would light them!
I would light a scented candle on my kitchen countertop, but all the candles in the pretty candleholders sprinkled around my house?
Not a chance.
I’m too afraid of lighting the house on fire, I guess!
Which leads me to The Best Piece Of Decor I Bought For The Holidays.
This year I went (almost) all flameless candles, and I am loving it. I get the pretty glow of the candles without the worry of the kitty or kid or husband (more on that below) knocking them over, or wax getting all over everything!
Funny story, my husband once accidentally lit a napkin on fire at my mom’s house while we were all eating dinner (hi mom!) and we laugh about it to this day! But I’m sure it hasn’t helped my confidence of burning candles in my own home 🙂 !
So, if you are like me and still want the glow of a candle without the worry or mess, these are for you!
These are the Pillar Candles I used & these are the Taper Candles. (I have the ivory ones.)
note- the small votive candles on my dining room table are real.
