This past week I have been playing around with candles. I decided earlier in the year that I wanted lots of white, silver or crystal candle holders for my table centre piece. I have a large piece of mirror I am going to sit them on the double the effect.
I have gathered them from all sorts of places ready for the Christmas table. This large based silver one in the middle is one of a pair I received for my 21st birthday - now that's a day or two ago!!! LOL The plain glass set of three (without candles at the moment!) I had purchased a few years ago.
I have two shorter mercury glass candle holders which I bought last Christmas. The small silver one on the left I bought at a thrift store for $1.00.
The pretty little with one with the roses was also from the thrift store ($2.00 for 2!) which I painted white then gave the roses a little touch of silver.
This crystal (glass really) holder was also from the thrift store for $2.00. I had been popping in to the local stores near my beach house every couple of weeks just to see what I could pick up.
This lovely frosted glass holder was $2.00 but had gold bands so after a good scrub I painted the bands silver- now I love it!
A lot of the candles are siting a bit crooked (which really annoys me!!) so I am going to spend some time adjusting them when I place them on the table.
This really tall mercury glass holder in the centre was a new purchase this year - $40.00 which I thought was a good price as it is very tall and very pretty.
I have a pair of these crystal holders (actually they are a type of plastic but you would never guess) which look cute with the silver candles.
I hope all your Christmas decorating plans are taking shape!
