5 Favorites: Moody Black Candles

Issue 44 · Miss Havisham · October 31, 2012

For the past couple of years I've been addicted to black taper candles, especially effective when used in candelabras (or in groupings) to add an edgy note to a table setting and especially relevant for Halloween.

Our favorite beeswax tapers (available in a range of colors, including black) come from Big Dipper Waxworks in Seattle.
