Birch Candles and Spring Tulips

I bought some birch candles in the 90% off Christmas isle at World Market about 5 weeks ago.    They have been laying on my work table in the utility room ever since I brought them home.   This morning I decided I should either put them away or use them in a new!

I wondered how they would look mixed in with spring decor in the entry and was pleased at how my vignette turned out.   

I bought 5 birch tapers......

I bundled 3 of them together with a rag ribbon,   and put the other 2 in crystal candle holders.

I put the two round birch candles on crystal candle holders and set them in a spray of greenery.


Herb  Gardens......

and painted tiles fill the other 4 shelves in my entry unit.

My floral design is a little different than I usually make.     I tied  long stem tulips together  with rag ribbon and put them in a short vase for an unusual look.

The new faux flowers that have come out look so real!

I will add some Easter touches to the existing decor and I will be good to go!


  1. I have some of the WM birch bark candles that I purchased a few years ago. I love the texture they provide and the natural feel they bring to a vignette.

  2. The birch candles worked in very nicely penny. They do make gorgeous faux flowers now days! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
