Candles, The Different Types and smells !

Candles

Candles

It is no wonder that the are so popular. These simple light sources  makes every general house into a romantic place. However, they are also used for the aroma, to create a pleasant scent, or just to add a decorative element to a room, and can even be used in religious ceremonies and weddings.

One of the most popular typesis the pillar candle. These are cylinder shaped and are made with wax. They are usually have some kind of aroma in them. People use these to create a relaxing ambiance in the bath, a romantic ambiance in the bedroom, and a pleasant atmosphere in the dining room. And they are also frequently personalized to commemorate important events, such as a child’s christening or a wedding.

The taper candle is used to add some soft lighting at the dining room table. These candles are designed to fit easily into traditional candlesticks and burn slowly for several hours. They also are used in standard wall sconces.

Placing more in a group  together will make big impact. You can use votive candles in lanterns or decorative candle holders, but you should never burn them without having them contained in some way, since they are short and could burn down quickly before you notice that the flame has almost reached the furniture surface.

Floating candles are the ideal way to create a beautiful centerpiece. Having them float in water is beautiful, since the flames reflect on the water’s surface, but also is a great way to burn them safely.

Jar candles are scented candles made with high quality paraffin or soy. These candles can really make a room smell wonderful. Soy candles are a bit more costly than paraffin candles, but burn more cleanly.

Finally, since candles have an open flame, they can be dangerous to use. To keep your home safe while you are enjoying your candles, there are a few simple tips you may want to follow.

1. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
2. Always use some sort of candle holder. They will help protect furniture from dripping wax.
3. Consider using a candle shade to reduce soot from candle flames.
4. To enjoy scented candles without worrying about an open flame, try candle warmers. The candle warmer heats an unlit jar candle from beneath to release the scent. When you use a candle warmer, you will also help your candles last much longer than candles that are burned.

How to Decorate for a Baby Shower?

babyAs the host of a baby shower, the decorations will likely be one of your biggest tasks!

Just because you’re the host, it doesn’t mean you need to spend hundred of dollars to have a fabulously decorated location for your loved one’s baby shower.

Think in themes!  Using a theme can make decorating SO much easier than if you just have a vague idea of boy or girl for decorations.  Here are some simple ways you can save money on decorations.

Using the baby’s nursery theme, you can incorporate your gifts for the new mom into the decorations.  If the baby is going to have a Noah’s Ark, farm, or jungle themed room, you can get some stuffed animals to decorate with!  Use them as centerpieces and to decorate side tables, as needed.

For a star themed room, you can cut out large stars, spray paint them silver and gold and hang them from the ceiling.  Use star confetti on the tables and try to find some wire garland, too.  I’ve seen these types of garland all year round.  Stars are also easy to find on candles, tablecloths, napkins, etc.

Many people love to give diaper cakes as baby shower gifts.  They not only serve as gifts, but make great centerpieces!

For the baby showers I have hosted, I always like to have a menu on display so the guests know what they are eating!  It probably comes from being a picky eater, but I have always gotten wonderful comments on this.  It is VERY simple to do, too!  Just get a nice picture frame (you can even get one engraved for a baby gift!) and on your computer, type up the list of foods you will be serving.  Use a font that coordinates with the theme, center it on the page and print it out!  I like to order the item the same way nice restaurants do with appetizers first, salads and breads next, main courses after that, followed by desserts and beverages.

It really is a very nice touch that doesn’t take much work at all, but you will get lots of compliments on it!  I don’t even mind if you take all the credit yourself!

If you want to have something outside the baby shower location to announce it, you can get a banner or yard sign that can also be given to the mother as a gift.  Always be thinking of dual purpose baby shower decorations that can be given as gifts!  This is a great way to save money!
Flowers are wonderful additions to any baby shower decor.  If you live near a supermarket that has a floral department, you can save lots of money by just picking up some bundles and doing your own floral arrangements.  Most stores have a floral artist that works there, so ask for a few tips.  Don’t be afraid to try this!  No one will likely know that you didn’t get an arrangement custom made for the baby shower if you don’t tell them.

When you’re there, ask if they have any discarded petals you can have.  Most florists take a few petals off roses before arranging them and will give them to you for FREE if you ask.  Just call around to local shops and see.  You’ll never know unless you ask!

If you just don’t think you can handle doing your own floral arrangements or you won’t have the time, ordering online can also be a huge money saver.  You can often get dozens of roses for so much less online than locally because online florists can buy in bulk and pass the savings on to you.

Have fun decorating for your next baby shower!  Remember to use decorations that also can be used as gifts to save money!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the YearWith the Christmas season fast upon us, it is time to start decorating our homes  On the inside and on the outside. There are a lot of families that use the same decorations every year again.  But others go all out and try to change the decoration style with every passing season.  As the holidays tend to be a time when people do a lot of entertaining in their homes, why not consider adding something extra to your holiday decor ?

In years past, we have approached our holiday decorations with a certain theme in mind.  One year, we decorated our home to look like Santa workshop.  Another time, we dressed our living room like a life-sized nativity scene.  And last year was my favorite, by far!  We made our  home look like a beach complete with sand and palm trees, and had Christmas in a Hawaii scene.  There are lots of different scenes you can come up with. As long as you have the time and money for it to do it you can make something really nice.
This year we keep the decorating simple. White lights on the outside of the home, in a winter theme. (So lets hope there will be some snow 🙂  The idea is to transform the living room in a winter wonderland.  We are planning to use in the Christmas decoration a lot of blue, white, and silver.  And we will spend an afternoon making paper snowflakes.  You remember those don’t you?  You know the ones we all used to make in elementary school, where you fold up a round piece of paper and take little snippets out of it with scissors to make unique snowflake patterns.  So much fun!  We will also use lots of those silver icicles, and snowmen of various shapes and sizes.
Decorating your home really helps get your family and friends into the Christmas spirit.  We usually invite our extended families over to help.  This gives all the children an opportunity to share in what has become a wonderful family tradition.  It also gives the adults a chance to enjoy some good company and maybe even some spiced-up eggnog!  Later in the day we will likely all gather around the television and watch our favorite Christmas movie.  We like to watch “A Christmas Story” every year as a family.   What are your Christmas wishes ?

Christmas Tree Ornament Tips

Christmas-OrnamentsWhen it comes to decorating, we are all perfectionists about our Christmas tree. After all, it happens only once a year and the decorations are a treasure to behold. The finishing touch, for any Christmas tree, is the ornaments. Perhaps you have memories of a personalized ornament given to you as a child or maybe it’s the tradition of hanging them with your family – making sure that each is perfectly spaced from its neighbor for that added touch of beauty. The Christmas ornaments for Christmas trees, which we choose, should be a reflection of ourselves and our family.

There are all types of Christmas ornaments for Christmas trees. From glass to unbreakable, there is something for everyone. Glass ornaments are among the most expensive, in part, because they require such intricate detail and add a touch of elegance to any Christmas tree. Glass ornaments pick up the reflection of lights and beam them across the room with, perhaps, even a twinkle or two. These ornaments are often hand-painted, which adds to their uniqueness.

There are a variety of unbreakable ornaments, also available, in a multitude of colors. If you have a child who loves to be near the Christmas tree, glass ornaments may not be the best option. Or, if you have a pet that enjoys the mystique of the tree a little too much, you may opt for something unbreakable. This is why there are plastic ornaments, which are much safer for your inquiring family members whether they be small or furry.

If you have children, there are plenty of ways to make beautiful Christmas ornaments for Christmas trees at home.


Using gold ribbon, tie a bow and place it on the tree. Repeat these steps until your tree is filled with golden memories of your child’s imagination. You can also purchase plain white ceramic ornaments and, together with your children, paint them into beautiful Christmas ornaments for Christmas trees.

What’s good enough to eat and also looks beautiful on a Christmas tree? Give up? It’s a candy cane, of course. These pretty little symbols of Christmas are everywhere during the holiday season. If you can resist the temptation of eating them, candy canes make terrific Christmas ornaments for Christmas trees. Leave them as they are or tie little red bows around them for an added touch of Christmas.

If your child would like a personalized letter from Santa, contact one of Santa’s helper services and inquire about Santa also sending your child a personalized ornament with his/her name engraved. This will truly be one of the most special ornaments on the tree and your child will treasure it forever.

Christmas ornaments for Christmas trees truly are the icing on the cake. Let them reflect you, your family, your home and your love for the holidays. The most precious ornaments are those we decorate with love. Not so surprisingly, these are also the most beautiful.
