How to Use Crystal Candlestick Holders to Decorate a Table


Crystal candlesticks add a sparkling touch of elegance to any table decor. Their colorless appearance makes them ideal for any decorating palette, making any occasion feel more special. Crystal candlesticks are available in assorted shapes and sizes to accommodate your table needs and personal preference. They're also offered at a wide range of price points to fit almost any budget.

Dinner Parties

  • Dinner parties provide an ideal opportunity to include crystal candlesticks in your table decor. Place an arrangement of candleholders in assorted widths and staggered heights in the center of a dining table. Place the tallest candlestick in the middle of a crystal grouping. Use white tapers, tea lights and pillars to create a simple, charming ambiance. Tuck small sprigs of flowering plants among the candlesticks for increased visual interest. For example, lavender or forsythia sprigs add soft spring colors, while white baby's breath conveys a fresh, monochromatic look.


  • Weddings and crystal candlesticks go hand-in-hand. Reception tables, buffet tables or family dinners after a wedding will instantly come to life when glowing candles are perched atop crystal candlesticks. Slide mirrored tiles under the candleholders and sprinkle shiny confetti over them for added sparkle. Situate clear vases of flowers in the midst of a candlestick grouping to add soft elegance. For example, position a vase of pink roses atop a mirrored tile in the center of a reception table. Surround the vase with crystal tea-light holders filled with pink tea lights for a soft glow with simple, upscale appeal.

Holiday Gatherings

  • Deck your holiday tables with seasonal foliage and crystal candlesticks. For example, center two or three large crystal hurricane candleholders atop a dining table. Situate a tall, white pillar candle in each of the hurricanes, and add a couple of inches of artificial snow inside the crystal holders around the base of each candle. Lay small evergreen branches, white-frosted pinecones, holly twigs with red berries, shiny Christmas tree ornaments and red, curly ribbons around the hurricane candleholders.

Romantic Dinners

  • Ignite a romantic spark with a table ensemble that includes a crystal candleholder. Set a romantic table for two by positioning a floating crystal candleholder in the center of a quaint bistro table. Fill the bottom of the holder with colored rocks, add water and place a floating candle in the water. The soft glow of a lit candle combined with reflecting water and sparkling crystal will help to set the stage for a cozy, romantic dinner.
