Chasing Candles

This week, I’ve been on the hunt for a candle holder I found via the mysterious interwebs of technology.  I say it’s mysterious, because while Google gave the results for the image and I was even able to track the photo back to the originating website, the owner of the website cannot provide me with a source for the subject of the image (which is the most amazing brass taper candle holder) and I can’t even come up with any other key words that can provide me with similar search results.

I’ve contacted companies and event florists throughout the country, all who are intrigued by my dilemma but none are able to offer me satisfactory results for my search.  I have racked up hours of frustration, late night Google searches and I don’t feel like I can give up because all this effort would truly be wasted.

I love a good hunt.  But this is just getting ridiculous.

As much as I love flowers, I also love illuminating them with the most perfect golden glow.  Candles are one of my favorite event accessories and I pride myself I choosing the best ones for each and every tabletop I design.

I don’t really have a profound reason for sharing these thoughts today, but I did come across this quote that seemed appropriate for the situation and perhaps we need a dose of positivity in an often frustrating world,

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.  Happiness never decreases by being shared.”


We’re drawn towards a beautiful flame.  Let us light one another and share joy. Just a little something mull over on this gloomy Thursday afternoon.  And if you’re really interested on the candle that I’m trying to track down, it’s these gold bases (but VaseMart doesn’t actually carry them).  Any tips on sourcing them would be greatly appreciated.
