KC Live Valentine Special

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so why not treat your sweetheart to a romantic candlelit dinner? Local chef Mary Berg of Delish! Catering and stylist Chadwick Brooks of Walter & Ferris teamed up on KC Live to teach viewers how to bake a flourless chocolate torte and style a romantic Valentine’s dinner table. 

For your tablescape, Brooks recommends combining modern and vintage looks. Bright white dishes paired with red linen napkins will provide excellent contrast and a romantic feel. Brooks also included some fun, whimsical Valentines from Hallmark to the place settings just to add a little something extra.

A pair of taper candles is a classic way to dress up your dinner table. Brooks recommends Creative Candles for our wide range of colors, specifically our shades of red. The candles that were featured in the segment are a pair of 12” tapers in Red.

Red roses are another traditional choice for your Valentine’s tablescape. When you purchase your roses, keep in mind that the price varies by stem length and color. The longer the stem and the deeper the red of the rose, the more expensive they’ll likely be.

Designer Spotlight: Eddie Ross Features Creative Candles’ Tapers

When it comes to hosting a summer bash, the smallest details are often the most important. Seemingly minor details like silverware, glasses and candles help to create an extraordinary finished design. Here at Creative Candles, we always appreciate an impressively detailed tablescape, so when one of our most beloved designers, Eddie Ross, featured our natural beeswax tapers in an event, we had to share.

Eddie Ross is truly an expert when it comes to details. He consistently creates gorgeous and immaculate designs, and his summer soirees are no exception. His colorful and eclectic style is apparent in every one of his recent tablescapes and designs.

For a recent book signing in Macon, Georgia, Ross created a magical tablescape by mixing the host’s beautiful dinnerware with his own for his signature “modern mix” look. By combining dishes in various blue tones with bright yellow roses and our 12’’ natural beeswax tapers, the final product was whimsical and even reminiscent of a scene from Alice in Wonderland.
