Watch That Warm Weather: Set Candles Out Later

When hosting any sort of sit down dinner, I always set the table in advance -sometimes even days in advance. However I learned a hard lesson in pre-setting the table this 4th of July. Our hostess Denise had created a gorgeous table setting in red, white, and blue with watermelon accents. Although dinner would not be served until dark, the table was set and unfortunately the heat (it was 105° that day!) had melted all of her candles into wilted shapes! Thinking quickly, she took the melted candles, rolled them back into their long, thin shape, and placed them inside until it was time to light them. Moral of the story: to avoid a waxy meltdown, when pre-setting your outdoor table, don't position the candles until the weather has cooled and you are ready to light the wick.
