Aren’t they emergency candles like for when you lose power? I have a dozen of them from the hardware store. Are you using them for your wedding? You should if you can get a good deal on them.

For what will you be using it?  With what will it be displayed?

Absent other detail I would say that it is a perfectly nice candle, but nothing about it really jumps out at me.

@Amaryllis: Ha!  I was thinking the OOP  (original original post) was sort of out of character for you.

Honestly?  I think the candles you found are a bit industrial looking and might not pair well with the milk glass.  I’d hold out for the tealights and invest in the LED variety.

They remind me of those candles that have a picture of the Virgin Mary on them… because of that, I’d decorate them up somehow (but not sure how you could do that, since the top is what gives it away).

Check Dollar Tree online, to see if they have any other candles.

I too was worried about tea lights not lasting through the night (and mine didn’t) – what I used for most of the table were bigger votive candles in glass containers instead of tea lights….

Sorry, not a huge fan of them on their own.  Can you post alittle more detail on what you are going to use with them?

You can definitely dress them up and no one will ever know. Tea lights never last long and no one is going to go around and replace them. Votives can burn funny and go out too. I think you should get one and play with it. Since I have some, I’ll play myself to give you some ideas. What colors are in your wedding? Are these a true white or more ivory?

@Amaryllis:  Sorry, the last vase and the rest wasn’t there when I read it, WB is jacking up again third thread today like that.

I think that they would be pretty with the milk glass and the ribbon around it.  I just got some ribbon like that at Hobby Lobby for $4, would go perfect.

What about wrapping them with sheer fabric or lace? I think that the lace would add a really nice softness to the table. I also love the look of lace with milk glass! Good find!
