Holiday Candles and Candleholders

Holiday candles and candleholders turn an ordinary room into a festive party mode. Now candles come flameless, which makes them safe around kids. Traditional candles are still available that you can light too.


For Halloween, we have pumpkin-shaped candles with a wick in the stem. Beaded skull candles, glass skull votive holders and mini skull candles add a lighthearted spookiness to the season. Light the candles while you wait for the trick-or-treaters to ring the doorbell. Keep the candy in a pumpkin serving bowl while you sip on apple cider in a pumpkin mug. The bowl is ideal to use throughout the fall season. Fill it with pine cones or fresh apples to use as a decorative centerpiece for a dining room or kitchen table.


The harvest spice scented candles and candleholders shaped like pumpkins are quite suited for Thanksgiving. Twig, filigree-punched ceramic and pierced bronze are gorgeous set out on a coffee table or fireplace mantle. Harvest pumpkin and autumn leaf wreaths are a welcoming greeting on a front or back door. Classic fall colors of golds, oranges and browns blend together for an elegant way to decorate an entrance.


Celebrate the eight days of Hanukkah with menorah candles. Flameless silver pillar candles could be another way to celebrate with lights that turn on and off with a touch of a button. A large silver champagne holder or ice bucket keeps bubbly nice and cold. When it’s time for a toast fill the flute with champagne or prosecco and raise your glass.


Kwanzaa is filled with a week of celebrating seven principles. A set of glass votives or silver-plated candlesticks with tapers is ideal for lighting a candle each of the seven days. Candlesticks come in a variety of sizes so you can mix and match them for dimension. During the week, it is customary to display beloved artwork. We have some awesome decorative objects that serve as tastefully-designed artwork. Treasured objet d’art might include showcasing a large hourglass stand on an accent table to show the value of time. In addition, consider putting out bronze bird statues signifying your appreciation of nature or a large coral piece as a reminder of the power of the ocean. These relics will last long after the holiday has ceased so you can use them as decoration all year.


For a sensational-looking touch, scatter silver and gold votives throughout your home for a little glitz and glamour. Sculptured reindeer votives are exquisite on a baby grand piano or on a dining room table. The antlers hold small votives. To add some of the fragrances of the season, light pomegranate or white cranberry mixed with thyme scented candles. Use flameless pillar candles to line the mantle in between sprays of greenery. Hang knitted, faux fur or embroidered stockings across. As tradition holds, Santa will fill them up with treats on Christmas Eve once everyone is sleeping.


Love and romance are always in the air on Valentine’s Day. Fill your home with red votives and red flameless pillar candles to set the proper mood. Whether you are having a candlelight dinner, reading a romantic novel or watching a romantic movie with friends or your significant other, the candles create a calm ambience for the holiday. Pour some wine in a lovely wine glass while you celebrate. Wine glasses with or without stems are super for serving whites, reds or blended varietals. We have etched wine glasses, crystal-cut and hipped-shaped at Pottery Barn. Good wine is important and good glasses are essential. Swirl, sniff and taste to your heart’s content when Cupid is in the area.
