  • Twisted candles are made by slowly turning the melted wax of the candle resulting in an interesting, twisted design.

Before deciding which dinner candles to choose, it is a good idea to think about the effect you would like to create when you display. Here are some ideas for candle arrangements for a beautiful table setting:

Place a selection of tall candles equally distanced apart to give a dramatic effect to the table setting.

Play with height

By combining small and large candles in varying heights you can create movement and flow along the table.

If you are decorating a round table, you can create a beautiful centrepiece by grouping together several elegant candles in different heights.

Why do candles flicker?

The strong flickering of candles is usually a sign that the wick is too long, therefore you should shorten the candle wick regularly. This also extends the burning time of the candles. A candle wick should have an approximate length of 5-7mm.
