An Instant Mood Setter

I don’t know about you, but daylight savings time

seems to be a catalyst for a new game changer for all things around my house.

We end the day earlier heading inside for food and warmth.

As the day draws to a close, I like to add warmth to my room with candlelight.

There’s something about candlelight that makes everything more special.

Candles seem to add coziness to room warding off the chill

that the autumn weather brings.

I like to distribute candles around the room and into other rooms, avoiding jarring light.

I use tapers, votives, pillars, and tea lights so I can create a softly lit environment no matter what the occasion is just to add a bit of ambiance to a quiet room or a room filled with conversation and laughter.

I place a few votives on the table to make it special.

I love the reflection of the candlelight as it highlights spaces and objects in a room.

Candlelight seems to add a bit of magic to your space and sets a mood and tone.

There’s just something about candlelight that makes everything a bit more special.

I would like to believe that the soft glow of candlelight

makes my efforts look just a little better!;)

I love using tapered candles in décor.

They are the perfect thing to add to a vignette or centerpiece.


So, as you set your table for a meal,

wind down the day,

or cozy up by the fire…

light a candle!

It doesn’t need to be a scented candle.

When guests are to arrive, I like to light a scented candle in the guest powder room.

So tonight light a candle or two and turn off the lights.

You may find a more soothing environment and a whole new focus.
