Creative Placement Ideas

Enhancing your garden party with Rathbornes candles can add a magical touch to the evening. Here are some creative ways to display candles that not only elevate the ambience but also ensure safety and practicality:

Candlelit Pathways: Guide guests along garden paths with several candles placed at intervals. It creates a welcoming journey into your party space, combining beauty with practical lighting. Ensure candles are in secure holders to prevent tipping and away from low-hanging branches or decorations.

Captivating Centerpieces: Transform tables with centrepieces incorporating candles, flowers, and natural elements. For stability and safety, use candles within glass lanterns or hurricane vases, which protect the flame from breezes and add an elegant touch.

Hanging Lanterns: Suspend lanterns with candles from tree branches or along the perimeter of the gathering area. This vertical element draws the eye upward and adds depth to your party décor. Ensure lanterns are securely fastened and positioned away from any flammable material.

Always keep candles out of reach of children and pets. Place them away from walkways where they could be knocked over, and ensure they are extinguished at the end of the event.
