Candle and Flower Centerpieces    

How to Decorate a Room with Flowers and Candles

Want to add an air of formal grandeur to a living room? Floral centerpieces with candles - specially one-color bouquets - add a look of timeless elegance to any table. Old-fashioned? Maybe so, but this remains a stylish way of decorating your interiors.

Deck that dinner party with bouquets of fresh cut flowers. Add the traditional dinner candles, and dine in style. For a long dining table, line up a series of small arrangements, alternating with candlesticks, on a sumptuous table runner; display wood box floral arrangements, for informal flair; or display an extra-long, narrow centerpiece, that spans the length of the table.

Adorn a mantel with an elongated arrangement of roses, orchids, or lilies. Put Sterling Silver or crystal candlesticks on either side. Simply magnificent!

Make your own simple centerpieces: stick a fat pillar candle into a terracotta pot, or decorative bucket; surround it with colorful flowers from your garden, or local market stall. These garden-fresh decorations add a look of just-picked vitality to a windowsill or patio.

Scented candles - with dried flowers inside - make fragrant candles for the home. Supremely feminine, as vanity and bedside table candles.

Poppy and pansy arrangement with large ivory, cylinder candle in the middle
Don't have the skill or inclination to do a formal flower arrangement? If, like me, you're not a very talented flower arranger, this is an easy floral piece you can do without an oasis.

This centrepiece won't stand the test of time, or withstand the rigours of a formal event, but is ideal for informal, candle lit dinner parties. A great way to display flowers from your own garden, too. Substitute your favourite seasonal flowers for the poppies and pansies, if you prefer.

Proceed as follows: place a big candle in the centre of a dinner plate, (or dish with slightly raised edges). Pour a shallow layer of water into the plate. Surround the candle with flower heads, with their stems in the water. Stick smaller, contrasting flowers and foliage into the gaps.

A quick, more environmentally-friendly way of arranging flowers.

You'll need:
A shallow, oval dish
2 taper candle holders
1 ball candle, 2 taper candles
A round bowl, which the ball candle fits into
Flowers, (we used asters)

Place the bowl into the oval dish. Place 2 candlesticks on either side of the dish, with taper candles in them. Pour water into the dish and arrange the flowers loosely around the bowl with their stems sticking into the water. Put the ball candle into the bowl.

Add some water to the vase. Place the candle in the vase. Stick the flowers in loosely around the candle in a way that is pleasing to your eye.

Other flowers you can use: marigolds, daisies, any other long-stemmed flowers. Not delicate, sophisticated flowers such as orchids and roses.
