Whether you want to add a calming accent to your everyday decor or a festive touch to your Fourth of July or Hanukkah celebration, blue candles can complete the look. Mix and match light and dark blue candles or go with a single hue for a striking effect.
Styles of Blue Candles
Set a peaceful tone throughout your home by placing blue candlesticks on a dining table or buffet. Set small blue candles on your vanity or around your bathtub to create a spa-like atmosphere. Here are some other ideas for adding this colorful accent to your home:
• Blue pillar candles are classic shapes that come in various heights. Place them next to each other to create a focal point in your room. Or set them in an empty fireplace or on a decorative tray for a stylish arrangement.
• Place traditional tall, thin blue taper candles in candle holders or candelabras. For a festive look, place taper candles of varying shades in holders next to each other.
• Make an attractive centerpiece with blue floating candles in a vase or bowl with water and rocks – perfect for a beach cottage vibe.
• For a subtle approach, choose blue votive candles or tea lights. Placed in special glass holders, these work well in groups. Use them to line your mantle or set them on your dining table surrounding a flower arrangement.
For a safer option when kids or pets are afoot, choose blue battery-operated candles. Place LED tea lights on a window sill or on outdoor picnic tables. You won’t have to worry about the breeze blowing them out. Or look for waterproof versions to surprise dinner party guests with a glowing flower vase or ice bucket.
