What are Taper Candles?

A taper candle is a slender candle that gradually tapers from a wider base to a narrower top. They come in various lengths that can range from demure to dramatic (6” to upwards of 39”). Designed to fit into candlesticks and candelabras, they can be used for decorative purposes, such as adding an elegant touch to a dinner table or enhancing the atmosphere in any room. You’ll also find taper candles playing vital roles in celebrating Advent and Chanukah, as well as wedding ceremonies.

How to Decorate with Taper Candles

Taper candles are a classic and versatile decorative element that can be used in a variety of ways. First off, tapers need holders. These can range from impressive brass candelabras to small wooden bases, rock-filled jars to colorful ceramic holders. 

A general rule to keep in mind is to choose a holder that is proportional to the height of the candle — a shorter taper candle typically looks best in a shorter holder, while a longer taper candle looks best in a taller holder. 

Once you choose the right holder for your taste, tapers can be styled into centerpieces on a dining table or coffee table, to add ambiance to a room, or to create a visually interesting display on shelves, mantels, and more by mixing and matching colors and heights.
