5 Favorites: Moody Black Candles
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
For the past couple of years I've been addicted to black taper candles, especially effective when used in candelabras (or in groupings) to add an edgy note to a table setting and especially relevant for Halloween. Our favorite beeswax tapers (available in a range of colors, including black) come from Big Dipper Waxworks in Seattle.
