Lifestyle : Candle Holders Double As Vases

a2 Use a candle holder as a vase

After attending two wedding receptions in the past weeks, I was reminded of the liveliness of fresh flowers can bring to a space. I tend to decorate my space with artificial flowers for an obvious reason: convenience. Inspired by the wedding theme, I’m keen to introduce some fresh flowers to my space.

My past preference has always steered towards a tall and majestic flower arrangement. With that being said, it is an impractical choice for dining and coffee table centerpiece. As much as we all love flowers, we don’t want to peer through the flowers to see each other across the table and television shows right?

I started to look around for a short vase. Surprisingly, it is not easy to find an affordable and decorative short vase! (And I don’t want the clear glass ones). Talk about not finding something when you are looking.

Then I came across these rounded candle holders at a discount store (The Reject Shop, to be exact).  I love the blush and neutral colour palettes and its reflective surface is a bonus too! Since the candles holders are made of glass, there is no reason that they can’t double as vases.

    These are super sweet, Emily! I also tend to go for tall or big centrepieces, but really love the look of these :)

      thanks for your kind words! I have been loving it so far. It is an eye candy for my dining table at the moment. :)
