Cheap and cheerful and really effective if you get the look right… candles are the perfect pick-me-up during the recession! Studies show we are spending more time in rather than going out of an evening, to save money.
Set a relaxing, romantic mood in your home with an attractive candle display. Don’t be afraid to experiment- the images below from Decor8 provide plenty of inspiration. Have fun!

Now I know this isn’t a candle but how cute is it! Just perfect in the bedroom on your dressing table…
