Being in the throws of the holiday season, many people are entertaining more guests, and spending more time with family and friends. One of the most beautiful tables setting you can set is one with delicious Floating Fruit Candles. They are elegant, aromatic and add a beautiful glow to your festive tables.

Fruit filled floating candles are one of the easiest home decor projects you can make in only a few minutes to really dress up your tables in a hurry. If you add essential oils to them, they are not only beautiful but fill the air with the most delicious smells. Many people use pumpkin and other spices for Thanksgiving and at Christmas time, using peppermint, or evergreen scents work well.
