When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Candlesticks

I love love love lemons. The color is fantastic, and the smell is amazing. A bowl of lemons in the kitchen can brighten up your day in a second. After some time, you’ll probably figure out I enjoy decorating with food more than I enjoy cooking it. I am one of those cooks who turns the oven on too high to get dinner done, so I can get out of the kitchen.
But I have a husband and children, so I had to learn to cook a little. I used to say if we won the lottery, my first investment would be a personal chef.
But back to why you came to visit in the first place…
What am I talking about making candlesticks out of lemons?
Let me just show you.
The trend today in design is natural, light, and easy. Here is a perfect example of how you can create a beautiful tablescape for your next dinner party using organic items, such as herbs, with lemons as the center of attention. Don’t you just love that pop of yellow?
Set-up is a cinch. You place the lemon on the base spike and a candle in the top. Then spike the top of the lemon, making sure it stands up straight, and light your candle — that’s it, you’re finished! Your centerpiece looks beautiful, and it smells amazing. Everyone will think you spent your day preparing the table decorations, when really — if you’re anything like me — you stressed over the most important part of a dinner party: the meal. But that can be our little secret.
Tea parties, brunches, book clubs, church socials — lemons can add a fresh look to any event; and, with our candlesticks, you will have centerpiece options beyond your imagination.
If you are a modern hostess, order your must-have candlestick today and be the talk of the table.
