Let there be candlelight

It's September......the start of Fall- the harbinger of all festivities. Before you know it, the festive season will be here....Dussehra, Diwali, Halloween, Christmas, and candles are a big part of all of them.

My mind is bursting with lighting ideas for this year's festivals.....I found loads of inspiration all over the web and here is some for you....

Go get all your glasses out- wine glasses, shot glasses, martini glasses, all kinds of glasses.....and then all those jars that you may have collected, bring 'em out and get decorating.....with candles, for this festive season. 

Flowers paired with candles make for the most dazzling decor....don't you agree?

Jars with candles hung as lanterns....Pretty! I did something like this last Diwali.

I have tonnes of more ideas for decorating with candles- some inspired and some my own, which I'll be sharing with you in the next few weeks. So stay tuned for more on 
candlelight decor.

 If you have any such share. I'd love to post about them here.
