You never need an excuse to light candles. The light of candles is soft and romantic and creates a wonderful atmosphere in a room. I am a huge fan of candles and have loads of candlesticks, tea light holders or single candles all over the house. I often place a candle beneath a lamp on a small table and I light both the candle and turn on the lamp. The candle light softens the electric light.
I like to have one really nice scented candle in a room but I'm very fussy about the scent as there are so many ghastly, overpowering scented candles around. I particularly love the Pippa Small candle and I also love large Skeem candles.
Here are a few candles that I lit this evening that might help give you ideas of your own.
