glow in the dark

Like most people, I'm a huge candle aficionado--I never can seem to get enough. So "The Magic of Candlelight: 39 ways to glow beautifully throughout the year" article in Real Simple Magazine is right up my waxy alley. A few of my favorite inspirations from the piece:

Light the way up a spiral staircase with simple glass candle-holders

Transform small pumpkins and gourds into candlesticks (just hollow out the center and add white tapers) for a Halloween or Thanksgiving display

Add a merry note to a staircase by lining it with leaf-and-berry-adorned takes on luminarias

Lend a glow to a backyard bash by arranging tea lights in tiny hurricane lamps and terra-cotta pots clustered in groups

Nothing gives guests a warmer welcome ... than candles illuminating their pathway

A quick way to transform an everyday table: Cover a shallow tray or platter with a dozen pillar candles of varying sizes and diameters
