This $12 Amazon Find Will Make Even a Table of Leftovers Look Luxe
I have one absolute must-have when it comes to hosting at home: taper candles. There’s just something about that soft, flickering glow that effortlessly elevates any tablescape. That’s not all, though. Candles, of course, need holders, which is the perfect opportunity to add a layer of seasonal style to your table. With space and budget on the tighter side, I can’t invest in new dinnerware or linens every season. I can, however, indulge in an ever-growing stash of candle holders that are my seasonal table decor. Even better, they’re far easier to stash than things like plates, platters, and extra flatware or glasses, too.
With spring in the air, I’m eyeing these pretty VIXDONOS glass candlestick holder sets currently in my Amazon cart. They come in a gorgeous slew of fresh hues, including a soft pink, a bright amber, and a leafy green. Smoky gray glass and a clear option with a gold rim round out the offerings, and while these last two colorways don’t feel as springy as the others, they’re ideal for pairing with brightly colored candles. The stained, ribbed glass not only looks elegant and offers lots of texture, but it also has an almost vintage, high-end air about it — but thankfully without the matching price tag.
These candle holders are hiding an unexpected little secret, too: Flip them over, and they become tealight holders! I love the versatile decorating opportunities this simple set allows. You can place them on your table with tall candles, or use them for tealights practically anywhere in your home, any time of the year (think: windowsills, on a countertop, in the bathroom — the list goes on and on).
For the skeptical-minded (myself included!), I understand modestly priced decor can sometimes look better on a screen than IRL. Luckily with Amazon, most products have both a generous return policy and ample reviews just like these do, making this a non-issue. One buyer said, “I ordered them not thinking I would keep them — but I love them,” while another described them as “beautiful and super-functional candle holders.” With a set of three starting at just $11.89, maybe I don’t have to decide on just one color after all!
