Eco-Monday: A night by candlelight

In addition to the horrible nuisance of running tons of wires to make outdoor lighting work, Christmas lights and outdoor lamps are not always the most eco-friendly route to achieving great ambiance at your event. Candles are a wonderful alternative and add a great sense of elegance. Consider buying candles made from pure bees wax or vegetable oil, which are the best choices when thinking about the environment. If the idea of avoiding orange extensions cords and decreasing your footprint haven't convinced you, check out these gorgeous pictures of different events where candles played a significant role in lighting. Enjoy!

Hanging lights can be whimsical and create a great ambiance

Great addition to a fall inspired tablescape
Try hanging mason jars and add a tea light for a gorgeous candle-lit reception
