Gift & Decorating Ideas, part one

As promised, the gift giving and decorating ideas begin . . . this happens to be two for one! Candle holders--for pillars, tapers or votives.

They're appreciated as gifts because everyone uses candles. They're useful in decoration because they bring a sense of elegance and romance to any arrangement or setting. Here is a sampling of the candle holders you will find at Hodgepodge this holiday season:

This set of pillar holders look like liquid silver--they have a faux bois look that adds textural interest. They're lovely in a variety of settings.
These crystal taper holders have the classic star design so popular this time of year, but appropriate year-round. I love the icy feeling these blue tapers add to the look.
This is classic metal candelabra from our Mary Carol Collection. We've decorated with this candelabra in a variety of vignettes--including a spooky Halloween setting! It's a very versatile piece.
This tole candelabra is a personal favorite--do you know how hard it is to not bring everything home? It's absolutely lovely. I like it best with our espresso brown candles.
These votive stakes add a festive touch just about anywhere--in your potted plants especially. A planter filled with dirt or sand and topped with sheet moss would be a great centerpiece when filled with a variety of these stakes.

Mercury glass candle sticks--a classic.

These candle sticks resemble a stack of terra cotta pots--
wonderful for the gardener in you family.
One last sample of the beautiful, unique candle holders you'll find at Hodgepodge . . . this pillar hurricane on a metal base is quite stunning.
It will make a lasting impression on your table or mantle.

Remember all gift/decorating items I mention here in the blog will be available at a 20% discount for one week from the date of posting. This includes any candle holders in the shop--not just the ones mentioned here. It does not, however, include the candles. You have to mention the discount at check-out, because we're not promoting it in the shop. This is just for my blog followers. If you'd like tips for using these items in your home decor, please do not hesitate to ask for assistance when you're in the shop.

Thanks for your indulgence!
