Flickering, scented candle flames are synonymous with the holiday season. So, for all of you who—like us at the Natural Light Candle Company—love candles all year round and understand how essential they are to any gathering, this is your time to shine. For any festive celebration, there is nothing like the warm, uplifting glow of candlelight to welcome friends and loved ones to your holiday get-together. We believe that ambience is everything, and we have the perfect ingredients to help you. Follow our suggestions to revel in the spirit of the season and create memorable occasions.
Choose a color theme for your table setting.
For casual holiday gatherings we like the cool sophistication of our Ivory and Indigo St.Germain Pillars paired with blue and green mismatched plates. A branch from the garden, strung with silver ornaments makes an earthy addition.
For the purist, a collection of fresh whites will help set the scene. Consider our Damask Pillars in Ivory and White for the ultimate in modern luxe. Add touches of lace, silver, cream, and of course lots of champagne!
Traditionalists can return to the all time classic Christmas combination with our Red and White offerings from the elegant Damask range. Use objects on your table that reflect a lot of light. Here we’ve used an antique silver and white pitcher, a mirrored glass silver candle holder, silver Christmas ornaments, and silver leaf wrapping paper.
Add a splash of gold and elevate the glamour of your dinner setting with our Chrysanthemum Art Glass Luminary made especially for this festive season. Here we’ve accessorized a small grouping with gold ribbons and vintage gold costume jewelry for extra sparkle.
Group and regroup. Just like the number of guests at your gathering, we think the more candles the merrier. Candles are not just for the dining table. Place a group of candles at the entrance of your home to give a warm welcome to visitors. Group candles in conversation areas and even inside your fireplace in place of a traditional fire.
Does your home have a signature fragrance? If not, let us fill the sensory void! Each of our pure beeswax candles is blended with the finest European fragrance oils. For a rich floral that maintains sophistication, greet your guests with the scent of Gardenia paired with our equally luxurious Chrysanthemum Art Glass Luminary in Gold. This is a limited edition, so be sure to place your order soon. For the ultimate interplay of the traditional and the exotic, we suggest a Red Currant & Amber fragrance that burns from beeswax that has been hand poured into traditional Balinese offering containers. Each hand pressed and unique silver box is filled with botanically scented, locally sourced beeswax. Inspired by our environment, the silver tin is traditionally used by the Balinese to carry offerings to sacred spaces–now we have adapted it to fit your personal, sacred space.
Pair richly flavored meals with equally hearty olfactory delights. Our Damask collection is available in our most popular scent of Ginger & Amber Rose. The full-bodied top notes of Amber give way to an earthy Ginger and a sensual base note of Rose. All of our Natural Light Candle Company candles are made with our unique natural beeswax blend, so the only thing they emit is the holiday fragrance of your choice. Light up at least two hours before your guests arrive in order for the fragrance to fully saturate your home in time for their arrival.
Delight and Impress. To end the evening on a perfect note, gift guests with something special by decorating each place setting with a memento that they can take home. Our Damask Mini Recessed Pillars are as good, or better, than any dessert. Alternatively, our Mini Balinese Offering Tin in Red Currant & Amber will elevate any dining experience. Your guests can enjoy these candles all year round as each has a burning time of at least 50 hours.
One last tip! In order to enjoy each of our hand painted treasures for as long as possible, read our burning tips here. Have fun arranging your candles and enjoy the glow of the season.
Share you holiday table with us so we can enjoy your unique arrangement from afar. #naturallightcandle We have no doubt that they will be as fabulous as the festive season itself.
