Candlelight against lush green foliage is always a little magical, and we usually see it used on a table top or along a garden pathway. We were intrigued by this variation, which sees slim, birthday-cake style candles tucked into the soil of a container garden.

Admittedly, the low, square planter looks a bit like bunny birthday cake, but we really like the ambiance created by sticking candles in the hanging pots, at eye level.
