If you find yourself hosting more and more events, let candles be the star of the show that really wows your guests. No matter the occasion or season, candles bring a spectacular element to any dining room centerpiece or fireplace mantel. The key is to incorporate your candles in an effortless, complimentary way with the other décor in the room.
When it comes to those extravagant centerpieces (or even those modest ones), flowers and other seasonal foliage tend to be the focus of attention. However, instead of using expensive flowers as the main focal point, try using candles to set the stage and highlight other décor aspects. Candles and flowers can work together to create an absolutely beautiful and artful design.
Your artistic arrangement doesn’t necessarily have to include only flowers and greenery. Bring your arrangement to life by including candles that compliment the aroma of your flowers. Let the candles light up the room and other décor to create a space that will be sure to impress.
Another way to incorporate your candles is to use their stunning aromas to your advantage. It can be tempting to use fragrance free or lightly scented candles in order to not overload your guests’ senses, but if you can find just the right balance, your candles can compliment the overall atmosphere in any space. Seasonal scents can blend beautifully with seasonal blooms.
Fall can invite an assortment of rich, spicy scents which perfectly blend with turkey and pie, while summer offers more opportunities to include tropical and citrus fragrances that blend well with fresh fruit, salads and tropical smoothies. If you have the time, experiment! Consult with your candle experts in order to take your event to the next level.

At the end of any special event, dinner party, birthday party, etc, include candles with your gift giving. Candles are not only an affordable option, but can be personalized for each of your guests.
