Types of Candles and Candleholders

What's a no-thought, small-investment way to dress up a mantel? Try a collection of various-diameter pillar candles. What about a tabletop? Sure, flowers are great, but votives inside glass hurricanes add drama and intimate atmosphere. Candles and candleholders are guaranteed to improve your decorating possibilities and reap dramatic rewards in your rooms. The types include pillar candles, taper candles, battery-operated candles, container candles, votive/tealight candles, lantern/hurricane candleholders, open candleholders, and candlestick candleholders.

Pillar Candles

Wide candles, known as pillars, can take a variety of shapes, both round and angular. They may rest on a platform or be freestanding, and they come in a range of heights.

Pierre Belvedere Home
$17.74

Pierre Belvedere Home has transformed the plain white candle into a truly beautiful work of art by giving it a gorgeous luminous p...earl finish and a slightly rustic reflective textured surface. Used individually, the candle makes a simple and elegant statement; used in a grouping, they create a soothing halo of light that gently glows from candle to candle. Because the candles are unscented, they're ideal for weddings, receptions or any occasion where it's definitely about the ambiance and not about anything artificial. The pillar candle measures 3 x 4 inches and has an approximate burn time of 47 hours (plenty of time for a wedding, reception and candle-lit bubble bath later!). All Pierre Belvedere Home candles are individually wrapped in cellophane for optimal protection. Whether your style is classic, trendy or something in between, Pierre Belvedere Home Collections are full of fun and festive items designed to turn even the simplest of daily rituals into pleasant and unforgettable experiences.

Product Features

Product Features

When it comes to ambience per dollar spent, candles and candleholders are hard to beat. A few dollars can add color and drama, as well as the allure of the flickering light that only a candle can provide. It helps to have a range of candle types available so you can choose the style and setup for different meals and gatherings. But even so, certain common product features can guide you. Those include size, scent, color, and material.

Size

From tiny votives—small enough to fit several in the palm of a hand—to oversize pillars that rival the diameter of a dinner plate, candles vary widely in width and height.

Scent

In addition to a flame, many candles supply a scent. Whether you want scented candles is a matter of personal preference as well as sensitivity to fragrance.

Color

Beyond traditional white, candles and candleholders are available in a range of colors and even patterns. You can find some in specialized hues to accent a pretty holiday table, or more adaptable colors that can be on display from season to season.

Material

While nearly all candles are made of wax, candleholders can be fabricated from metal or any other type of flame-resistant material.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

A few tapers, a few pillars, a collection of votives, a candelabra, and a platform: Build on the basics, and you'll be surprised how many ways on how many days you can use your candles and candleholders. But that's only true if the types and product features also take into account the purchase considerations that are important to any candle and candleholder purchase. Review flexibility, storage, and candle longevity; here's a short guide to help.

Flexibility

If you're interested in using candles and candleholders year-round, then choose those that adapt to a variety of situations—dinnertime to relaxation time—in both size and color.

Storage

If the candles and candleholders you choose are special-occasion items, you will need a spot to store them when not in use. That may be a kitchen pantry or dining room hutch, or another cabinet that can accommodate their size.

Candle Longevity

How long a candle lasts depends in large part on how much you burn it. But you can make a guess: A scattering of votives that decorate a table will need to be replenished much sooner than tall pillars or tapers.
