I’m trying to find tall nickel candlesticks for me reception. I have candelabras already but want to fill in between them with candle sticks that are approximately the same size-40″.
The problem is I cant find something like this ANYWHERE. Does any of have any suggestions on where to find such a thing?
Here is my inspiration- LOVE!

FutureMrsLawlis: I would imagine that size with that finish will be extremely hard to locate. Just collect tall candlestick holders as you find them (craft stores and garage sales) then paint them all with nickel finish spray paint. Also, I personally have never seen a 40″ candlestick holder. With the candle they’ll be over 4′ tall while on top of a table…

I agree–definitely hard to find. If you’re absolutely dead-set on having them, go to antique shops and flea markets, which are probably your best bet.

FutureMrsLawlis: I’ve made it my mission to find something this afternoon since my office is basically empty…
Does it have to tapers? What about a pillar? http://www.save-on-crafts.com/candleholder13.html Or, you could probably add a taper holder to the top of this.
These are the tallest candlesticks I found and they’d need to be painted still. http://www.save-on-crafts.com/crystal-candlesticks-19.html
Have you looked into rentals? My local place (American party place) seems to carry some pretty tall ones for rent. They’re meant to be part of a floor unity set but don’t see why it couldn’t sit on a table.

Soon2BeMrsS: The candelabras I have are 40″, they are made for special events. The candle sticks don’t have to be quite that tall but I’d love to find a few that are similar in height…as those few in the pictures.
I agree with you both, though I probably will just have to collect random pieces and spray paint them so they will work together I just need to located the tallest ones I can find 😉

Thanks for the help!! Those crystal ones are gorgeous it would almost be a crime to paint over them! Too bad the ones I already aren’t crystal or I’d totally switch themes 🙂
I am actually renting the candelabras from the venue but they don’t have regular candlesticks. I’d love to rent them all if possible but I’m getting married in Europe so that’s not really an option.
