I light candles year round, and appreciate them even more during the colder months. Nothing adds warmth and evening ambiance like candle light! I have a lot of pillar candles in my living room..., and the following pillar candle holder display ideas should satisfy any beach cravings you might have.

Hi Maya, Thanks for stopping by. Now that we don't have power in Rockaways because of the hurricane, I could use some of those pretty candles in their candle holders. I'm glad you didn't lose power during the this storm. There are so many areas in downtown Manhattan still out of power. I just want everything to be back to normal, but I know I am months away from that!

I love all of the ideas! I have a tealight lit in a small mercury holder right now. It adds a little light and makes the room feel cozy. We're back in Florida so I'm anxious to do more decorating.

I love all the candle displays. Beautiful!! Keep in mind breathing the fumes from burning paraffin candles is essentially the same as breathing the exhaust fumes from a diesel engine. Use only bees wax candles... :)
