Summer nights are the perfect time to line a table with pretty, colorful candles. This year I decided to forgo the normal taper candles in favor of a mixture of glass jars filled with colorful candle oil. The result gave me a table that is a mix of the Old World (where I imagine oil-lit candles dotted along summer tables) and my bright, modern taste.
