I enjoy changing the decorations on my fireplace mantle as the seasons change, but I most always have some type of candles there. One of my favorite decorations is a large metal floral display which holds several votive candles and holders.
The sad thing is, I just use this as a display and have never even lit the candles! When I think about it I have several votive candles throughout my house that I have never lit.
The ones around the bathtub are the exception though. There is nothing more relaxing than a bubble bath surrounded with some scented candles.
