Here is an idea that anyone can tackle. Purchase a small urn, (any shape that suits your taste), preferable with a bit of height and an opening large enough to take the diameter of a pillar candle plus greenery. Also, be sure the urn has enough heft so that it will not tip under the weight of a candle. The example above is cast iron. Place inside the urn a piece of styrophome or floral foam cut to fit, be sure it is just slightly below the rim of your container by 1/2″ or so. Be sure that it is level. Place your candle in the center. Now decorate around the candle anything that appeals to your decor. ie: bows, decorative picks (from your craft store), small glass ornaments. Just keep with a color scheme including the candle.
