  • Material: Select a container made of heat-resistant materials such as glass or coated ceramic.
  • Size: Choose a container that is wide enough to accommodate a safe perimeter of wax around your wick.

Vase Fillers And Décor Buying Guide


  • Decorative candles are one of the most cost-effective ways to decorate an event space.
  • Consider the position of your candles and what candle holder materials would complement the rest of your décor.
  • Tealight, votive, and pillar candle holders are the most popular choices for event decoration.
  • If decorating a dinner table with candles always choose unscented candles as the aroma from the candles won’t interfere with the smell of the food.
  • Unlike tealight candles that are contained in a cup, votive candles are bare and will burn onto the surface of the holder.
  • Pillar candles are designed to burn inwards, making them great for church services and event spaces.
  • LED Candles have a beautiful natural glow and are safe to use in any event display.
  • Adding decorative sand or stones to the bottom of your candle holder can help stabilise the candle.
