Frogs and Dragonflies

This arrangement is a lovely green nature themed candle garden that features frogs and dragonflies…..there is also a pretty butterfly.  My favorite part of this garden is actually the base; this is a Partylite item that I bought from a friend who is a Partylite consultant.  This base is a Bamboo Leaf Pillar Holder or something like that.  If you have a chance to pick up one of these I’d recommend it, it’s very well made and beautiful… reflects the candle flame light perfectly.  I really like this simple arrangement it’s very summery and the shades of green complement each other so nicely.  The frogs and dragonflies are thrift store finds and the butterfly and the small light green candles are from Dollarama.  Sometimes I find that the simpler candle gardens are actually more appealing than the busy ones, it’s nice and clean looking and easy on the eyes.  The lesson is that there is beauty in simplicity, I can certainly wrap my head around this concept…… life tends to be hectic and chaotic and one of the things I’ve had to learn is to appreciate the in-between moments.
