Dinner Candles

{Making DIY candlesticks: 1. Lay a nest of blue-tack inside an egg cup; 2. Wedge in the base of a dinner candles securely; 3. Fill in the gap with craft moss}

Lately I've been appreciating the simplicity of a beautifully laid table and sit down evening meal. Since our dining table is my office, setting a table cloth and lighting a few candles is all about switching off and reconnecting. When it comes to dinner candles I have a strong preference for the tall, tapered, unscented variety. I'm on the lookout for the perfect antique silver candlesticks to hold them, but in the mean time I'm really enjoying these sweet little DIY'd egg cup stand-ins.
