Floating Candles Decor for Christmas

I found these super cute gel candle stars the other day at the store. These Floating Candles Decor for Christmas is just another quick (and inexpensive!) color scheme I am working on as I am still not sure whether we will only have a small Christmas breakfast or none at all and going to a restaurant for lunch.

Anyhow, whichever way we decide, I love Christmas time and playing around with decor ideas is quite a bit of fun. I do not think we will decorate the house on a big scale, but I am working on just a little thing I want to hang on the wall where it will be seen as you enter the front door into the living room. {by working on, I mean the idea is there - still have to make !}

The pack of gel candles I picked up has 6 different colors - one of each.

I used a small vase {about a whiskey glass height}, filled with water and placed the gel candle on top. It kept floating which is great as some of these so-called floating candles immediately drops to the bottom. What I like most of the candle - the lightest of light breezes make it move around in the glass creating the prettiest flame display. Not too much moving though, the flame kept burning.

I used an old candle wreath-like decoration and wrapped it around the bottom of the glass vase.

The decoration is small enough to place a few on a dining table, without being in the way or add to much height. I really do not like something in the way when I sit across from someone and can not see them when we chat. I see, restaurants especially, like to place a tall something or other in the center of a table and one needs to strain your neck to see the person across from you ... might be that the restaurants think the patrons are there to eat and that's it ;-)

What do you think of a red, green and gold Christmas color scheme ? And what are your colors for this year? Last year ours were blue, white and silver - minimally done as you can see ;-)
