Christmas parties are lively, fun, spirited and vibrant and when decorating for this special occasion it’s time to pull out all the stops. The use of candles can significantly enhance the overall look and feel of a Christmas party, creating a classy and stimulating edge. If you are unsure about how to utilise these timeless Xmas aides, then take a look at the following top Christmas party candle ideas. If you’re striving to create a traditional festive look at your Christmas party the pillar candles will augment the traditionalism of the occasion. Opt for a traditional festive colour, such as gold, red or green, or a pillar candle with Christmassy patterns embellished onto the wax, such as stars, snowflakes and ivy. Scatter this classic Christmas décor throughout the house. Make sure you light these elegant and striking candles before your guests arrive to make a decorative statement in your home.
Christmas Scented Candles
So Christmas might not be synonymous with garden partying but if the lawn is crisp with snow or the sky is blue (it can occasionally happen) you may want to take your guests outdoors for some fresh air. Outdoor garden candles will make a great addition to a Christmas party that ventures outdoors. The Jar Candle in red is an ideal outdoor decoration for a Christmas party. With a robust jar that shields the flame from the elements, this stylish candle is designed to weather the great outdoors. In glowing with such vibrant colour will create a warm and welcoming mood in even the frostiest of gardens at Christmas.
Christmas Dinner Candles
Whether you are serving buffet-style finger food or a full sit-down meal, your Christmas dinner table is likely to be one of the focal points of your party. The table therefore needs to be decorated suitably. Being tall, slender and elegant, Christmas dinner candles set the scene impeccably. For a real festive feel, place red tapered dinner candles in the centre of the table. For additional warmth and effectiveness, aim to have enough candles lighting up the dining room and dinner table that you eradicate the need for any artificial lighting.
Christmas Tea Lights
Whatever time of year it is tea lights always make a great addition to a party but particularly during the festive season when decorations and accessories are all about creating a characterful and atmospheric ambience. Scattering Christmas tea lights throughout the rooms the guests will be in will add a warm and welcoming cheer to the party. Putting tea lights in rooms where guests are likely to visit more infrequently such as the bathroom and cloakroom will be a classy and thoughtful touch. As it is likely to be dark when your guests either arrive or depart, lighting up the walkway with a row of tea lights in order to guide guests into the entrance of the party would be a sensible and welcoming precaution.
