Votive candles are pillars that are placed inside candle containers. Although they are very basic, they create an intimate setting with their soft glowing light. They are quite often used at special events such as wedding table décor, restaurants and dinner parties. Tapers give a more formal feel as they placed in candleabra. They are also quite elegant and light up a room beautifully. Intimate dinner parties, weddings, churches and romantic settings, candle tapers are a great way to add elegance to your setting.
