Table candles are a very simple way to make any meal feel like a special occasion.
From classic white to fun colours our dinner candle collection is sure to have the perfect colour to fit your next dinner party.
Several of our dinner candles are smokeless, dripless and burn for approximately 7 hours. Follow these simple steps to ensure you get the most out of your dinner candles.
- Keep your candles away from drafts. This will ensure your candle burns correctly and will prevent it from dripping. This also allows the candle to burn more slowly.
- Before lighting your dinner candle trim the wick to approx 1cm in height. This helps prevent the candle from letting off excess smoke. Having a nicely trimmed wick also helps your candle to burn at its ideal speed. If the wick is too large it creates a bigger flame and will melt the wax faster than intended.
- Stop burning your candle before it reaches the candle holder. This will allow you to easily remove your candle from the candlestick.
- Be careful never to leave a burning candle unattended.
Our dinner candles are designed to fit standard candlesticks however sometimes you might need a little extra help to get them to stay up straight or squeeze into a small candle holder. We have some handy products to keep in your kit for just these purposes.
If your candles are too large for your holder you can use a candle sharpener to shave off some of the wax at the bottom of the candle.
If you're having trouble with your candles wobbling around in your candlestick you can use candle glue to help hold the candle in place.
Although this tool won't help your candles stay in place they are very handy to have around the house to keep those candle wicks trimmed to an ideal height.
