So you have the perfect crockery and flowers, and the venue really is starting to look great, but there is something missing. You just can't put your finger on it. But as the day wears down and you are putting your final touches to the room, you reach over and switch on the electric lights and the room lights up in a glare.
Finally you can put your finger on it. You need candle light to soften the glare and to create atmosphere, and this is the case for almost any function, whether it is an engagement or a wedding or even a low key business dinner. You do not want your guests feeling as if they are under scrutiny. A well placed candelabra will provide you with adequate lighting while setting a tone.
You can either place tall candelabra around the room or go for a smaller version and have them standing directly on the table, this is a favourite for the degree of intimicy that it creates.
But don't rush out and buy candelabra. We hire out vintage candelabra which will suit most occasions. With the right candles and even some floral arrangement you can have a truly unique table setting.
