What is yellow and white and striped all over?


Have you ever seen a cuter pair of candles? Fivestripes, the manufacturer of Ana Candles, has sent me one pair of Chiffon and Daffodil tapered candles from their Pageant collection to give away to one lucky reader! The lemon-y fresh color combination is a great way to spruce up your table, mantle or patio for a summer party. Oh, and the packaging is almost as lovely as the candles themselves! I can't seem to get enough of all these stripes!

Ana Candles come in so many great colorways. Take a look at just some of the options in the Bright and Springy collection below.





They have been featured in House Beautiful, Country Living, Ladies Home Journal, Traditional Home... they're showing up everywhere and we love them!

More details, more details...

"Ana’s Striped Candles first shipped out to customers in 1994, and we proudly remain the leader in the stripe design we created. The original Striped Taper was designed by the company’s founder Frank Weeden and was the first of its kind, transforming a common household necessity into a sensuous canvass of alternating color. Sometimes, the simplest ideas produce the most extraordinary results…

The perfect symmetry, smooth finish, and deep richness of our inlaid stripes make Ana Candles everything they are today. Each season, sumptuous new palettes are selected to reflect the latest trends and delight candle lovers around the world. Ana Candles are truly a design classic and the perfect choice for decorating, celebrating, and gift giving."

Hi, I came over from Isabella & Max Rooms blog. What gorgeous candlesticks, I have just seen them in a recent mag & fell in love! If I won them I'd have to have a fun, modern-style garden party...they'd look great with all of my yellow Stella d'Oro daylilies blooming right now! Add in lots more yellow to the tablescape & it would be lovely! Thanks for the chance, I'm off to look around your blog at past posts now!
Blessings,
Stacey

What fun, summery candles. The yellow reminds me of the twinkly fireflies on a steamy June night. I would certainly use them when dining al fresco on my deck, gazing at the stars and sipping a cool glass of wine.

They remind me of summer and silly bumble bees! I would use them in my kitchen because it would be a contrasting color and because my kitchen is very eclectic. Also, I could use them on my black and white dining table. Thank you for the opportunity!
