Pillar Candles Make Ideal Decorations For All Occasions
From the large variety of candle models available on the market, pillar candles are probably among the most appreciated. Almost all candle manufacturers have included specific pillar candle lines in their collections, in a large number of colors, whether scented or not. Pillars also come in several shapes, the most common of which are round and square. Now, let's have a closer look at the occasions when this type of candle is successfully used, both in day to day life and in church. I should perhaps mention that very often people use groups of several pillar candles. When and where? Given their size variations, pillar candles go very well with wedding candle arrangements.
Groupings of such candles, but of different sizes and in a finely organized manner, can be a real sensation in the decorative atmosphere of a wedding. Many couples want their candles to be simple and elegant without seeming austere. This is why the candle color and their ornamental position are so important. Sometimes messages, such as thanks, invitations, jokes can be attached to the larger-sized pillar candles. Guests find it quite amusing to read the few lines addressed by their hosts.
Pillar candles also prove excellent accessories when organizing a very special romantic dinner. For such occasions, people usually go for red, dark green, silver or golden candles, given the fact that such hues emphasize mystery and romance. This time you should definitely choose scented candles that prove the best at creating the warmth and mystery of a night to be remembered. However, don't place the scented candles on the table where you serve dinner. The candle fragrance may go very bad with the food flavor. Better keep it on the safe side! Simply use some unscented pillar candles while eating. Pillar candles and the religious service The favorite candles during the religious service are usually tapers, however, pillars come second in the preference top. Mention should be made, that pillar candles are not held during ceremonial rites. They are actually placed in the altar, at the feet of statues or Christian representations of The Holy Son, Virgin Mary and various protecting saints. Beeswax, fragrance-free white pillar candles are among the most widely used in all the churches regardless of confession.
A special case is represented by pillar candles used at baptizing children. Such candles are held by the godfathers, and they are usually blue for boys and red or pink for girls.
