As you know I am one who loves to set a table. I have posted many photos of our tables both full views and snippets and one thing I never leave out are the candles. In my opinion the candles almost make the table and should never be set without them. They provide instant atmosphere and are sure to add incredible details to any table you set.
My favorite taper is from Creative Candles. I was introduced to Creative Candles a few years ago when Eddie Ross mentioned to about how he loved the candles and the amazing selection of colors. Since I love color I immediately checked them out and was instantly hooked. He was absolutely right, they make incredible candles and their selection is like no other.
Of course the first set I bought was the hot pink. They came and I immediately could tell a difference in the quality of the taper. I had been purchasing other tapers and I immediately vowed to purchase Creative Candles from that point forward. I have since purchased the mango, navy blue and cornflower.
Most recently I used the Cocktail Gift set on our Easter table. I love the subtleness of the candles and yet how stunning they become on a table. The aquamarine may, in fact, be my new favorite color.
For more than 50 years the artisans at Creative Candles have been hand-dipping and hand-pouring candles in Kansas City, Missouri. A unique proprietary blend of high-quality waxes is used to create beautiful one-of-a-kind candles and our craftsmen add their personal touch to give every candle a rich, matte finish. The result is truly something special - an exceptional smokeless, drip less candle with a slow and even burn.
Whether you are planning a large event, setting an intimate table, decorating your home or business or creating an elaborate tablescape, Creative Candles will be just right. From our dramatic 39-inch tapers, among the tallest in the world, to our collection of pillars and specialty candles, you'll have endless possibilities for creating a beautiful atmosphere. And, with the largest palette of colors in the United States, Creative Candles can provide you with just the right shade.
Our customers rely on us for a candle company who is consistent and dependable in delivery of products and services. We are carried by distinguished retailers, restaurants, hotels, resorts, florists, and special event planners throughout the United States and abroad. Our tapers have graced the tables at the White House, Lincoln Center, The Waldorf Astoria, the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong, countless weddings, galas, dinners for royalty, celebrity parties, and numerous special events.
If you have never purchased Creative's tapers you must check them out. They burn clean, are smokeless and drip less and come in a pair ready to grace your table. I normally purchase the 12 inch tapers but they also come in a variety of other lengths. They start at 9 inches and are available in three inch increments all the way to 30 inches.
The lovely people at Creative would love to give away a Cocktail Gift set to one lucky reader! These sets are my new favorite finds. In each box there are 8 tapers and two glass crystal candle holders ready to set up and enjoy immediately.
