Candles Outside - Beware!

Ahhh, don't you just love the scene below? So home-y and gorgeous, a warm glow of candlelight illuminating a beautiful table.  It's absolutely stunning! One thing to keep in mind when re-creating this lovely look: the wind! Don't underestimate the power of the wind to blow out your candles, no matter how large the jar or candleholder is!

Instead of lighting & re-lighting votives until your fingers are burnt, just go for the cheap battery-powered votives. You'll get the same look but without the headache.
