Centerpiece with fruit dessert candles Reminiscent of long, lazy days, warm friendships, and summer fruits, you can enjoy these desserts, (visually, at least), whatever the weather.

Arrange 3 of these fruit dessert candles on a tray, decorate with colourful napkins, and other dessert accessories, and your centerpiece is complete.


Rectangular, marbled candle with 3 wicks, surrounded by strawberries and carnations Create a "strawberries-and-cream" effect, using a red-pink-and-white marbled candle, fresh strawberries, and snow-white flowers. (We used carnations, but many other white flowers will do equally well).

You'll need: A rectangular, strawberry-red, pink, and white candle; a rectangular, white plate, longer and wider than the candle; fresh strawberries; white flowers.

Place the candle on the white plate. Arrange strawberries around the candle, and stick a flower head into each corner.
Centerpiece with apple decoupage pillar candle in the middle, surrounded by fresh apples You'll need:
A cylinder candle with an apple decoupage design
A wicker basket
Paper napkins, with an apple design, (optional)
Fresh apples

Place a few paper napkins into the wicker basket with
the edges hanging slightly over the sides. (Or just use
the wicker basket as it is). Place the candle into the center
of the basket. Surround the candle with the apples. Here are the instructions for the decoupage technique used on the candle.
Chunk orange candle centerpiece with fresh oranges Use a scented or unscented candle for this centerpiece, your choice. We used a 4x6" (10x15cm) cylinder candle with orange and yellow chunks.

You'll need:
A large orange chunk cylinder candle.
2 dried orange slices.
2 fresh oranges.
String (or raffia, ribbons, leather thong, etc.)

Thread the string through the orange slices. Tie it around the candle, so that one orange slice is on the front of the candle and the other on the opposite side. (So that your guest's on either side of the table have the same view of the candle). Slice the orange through four ways, without cutting through the bottom. This leaves 8 attached wedges. Open the wedges up gently to form petal shapes. Place on either side of the candle on 2 plates.
Lemon tin container candle centerpiece with fresh lemons Let your friends admire your handiwork, while you tempt them with tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits.

You'll need:
A decorative tin container candle with a fruit design. Scented or unscented, you choose. (I filled an old Danish lemon biscuit tin with wax).
Pieces of fresh fruit matching the tin design.

Place your tin candle in a central spot on the table. Arrange a few pieces of the fresh fruit next to it. Echo this centerpiece theme in the paper napkins, the cakes you serve or other decorative elements on your table. (Selectively, not every single thing has to match). This is also great for outdoors, as the tin makes a perfect hurricane shield.
Tip: these tin container candles become ferociously hot when they've been burning for some hours. Don't place it on a cake stand or anything else which might shatter easily. Tiles, dinner plates, metal trays and wooden surfaces are suitable.
candle in wine bottle centerpiece A variation of the old candle & wine holder centrepieces. Traditionally, a very soft candle is used, leaving artistic drips on the bottle and sometimes (oops!) on the table.

You'll need:
A wine bottle (I used a decorative bottle of Spanish recycled glass, with a raised grape design).
A taper candle.
A plate or tile to display the bottle on.
Fresh grapes, green and black.

Stick the taper into the bottle. Put the bottle onto the tile/plate. Casually arrange some grapes around the bottle.
fresh apple taper candle holder Fresh apples make luscious, (although perishable, and fleeting) candle holders. Insert tea light candles instead of tapers, if you like. A fruit tealight cutter gives you a neat and precise hole.

You'll need:
2 large apples (get the biggest ones you can find)
An ivory taper candle
Leaves (from apples or flowers)
A plate, to display the centerpiece on
A fruit candle carver (an apple-corer makes a good candle carver tool, especially for taper candles)
Lemon juice

Place the leaves in water and hydrate them well. This delays the inevitable droop which happens after a few hours. Make a straight hole about 2,5 cms (1") deep in the apple, using the fruit candle corer. Place the apple onto the plate. Wedge the candle firmly into the apple. Stick some leaves in around the base of the candle.

Slice the second apple into thin pieces. Sprinkle with lemon juice. This slows down the discolouration process, and the apple pieces will take longer to turn brown. Arrange them around the base of the central apple.
centerpiece made with citrus-coloured pillar candles and dried lemon, orange and grapefruit slices Enjoy the colours and scents of summer fruits, whatever the season.

Arrange a group of chunky, citrus-coloured pillar candles on a wax candle plate embedded with dried citrus slices. The lemon, orange and grapefruit slices are partially embedded, with the exposed bits subtly giving off their gorgeous fragrance.

We used various flat-topped and pointed cylinder candles with the following sizes: 10x10cm (4x4"), 8.5x19cm (3.4x7.6"), 8.5x16cm (3.4x6.4"), and 6x20cm (2.4x8").
