Elegant Summer Centerpiece: Beach-Inspired Votive Candles

Beachy Candle Is an Elegant Summer Centerpiece

Recently, my honey and I had dinner at a restaurant that specialized in coastal American cuisine. While the succulent seafood was the real takeaway, I also made a note to replicate the beach-inspired candles for my next dinner party.

At the center of our two-top table was a nostalgic, uncomplicated piece: the flame of a single votive, flanked by beach sand, inside a short bar glass. This shockingly easy and inexpensive decoration would be perfect for a Summer pool party or even a beach-themed rehearsal dinner.

Have you ever created something similar?

i recently held a beach-themed party and did something like this. Along with tealights in votives, we had scallop shells scattered around with tealights in them as well. It ended up very cute!
