Floating candles combine the soft flickering of a natural flame with gentle floating movement. What seems like an unlikely combination of fire and water works in perfect harmony to create the ultimate ambiance and mesmerise guests. They add something uniquely special to your event, yet floating candles are extremely cost-effective and easy to use…

Floating candles are specifically designed to float and can be placed in any vessel that holds water. Their shape ensures they remain stable as they burn, rather than tipping or sinking and extinguishing themselves. The cooling effect from the water keeps the wax contained for clean, beautiful burning.

The floating candle is a very versatile decorative candle, perfect for weddings and events. Whether you’re planning a glamorous wedding or entertaining at home, the versatility of floating candles allows you to display them in abundance on their own or pair with pillars and other candles.

Tips and tricks when incorporating floating candles, include:

  • Display in clear glass water-filled vases to maximise the effect from the flickering flame
  • Use different heights to create a layered look, for example Centrepiece Sets here
  • Pair floating candles with florals to create romantic centrepiece sets on your tables
  • Spread across your pool (just make sure your pool pump is turned off)
  • For an extra element of fun, use flowers, fruit or other décor objects in the water beneath the candle
