The red candle holders tied in perfectly with the Valentine’s Day tea. Used with a pink table-cloth, they gave the table a romantic and relaxing mood.

If you remember, I kept this pair of candle holders and base out after Christmas. I kept the base until the middle of January. After that, the only Christmas decorations left out was wintery items, like snowmen, winter garland and the red candle holders without the Christmas base.

Now that Valentines Day is over, the red candle holders will retreat to the attic until they are retrieved in November to  grace the Thanksgiving table.
