NCA – February 2022 Valentine’s Day Blog

Celebrating love means more now than ever before. With Valentine’s Day only weeks away, this is the perfect time to take a moment to acknowledge someone special, even if that someone is you. A candlelight dinner, a luxurious bath, or even take-out with the family are great ways to celebrate love.

A new year also brings new trends. Consider incorporating the following candle ideas into your Valentine’s Day plans:  

  • Taper Candles / Candle Sticks – Taper candles or candle sticks are coming back in a big way. The color, scent and size of the candles can easily set the ambiance for any occasion. Pink, red and white taper candles are the perfect pairing for a romantic Valentine’s Day at home or simply adding elegance to a weeknight meal. Don’t forget to pair your candles with the perfect holder. Consider looking at resale or thrift stores for some vintage candle sticks at a great price.
  • Candle Crafts – Check out NCA’s site on Pinterest or any crafting site online for great ideas on candle crafts.  There are plenty of options to do with kids, a get-together with friends or make a special gift for your sweetie that will light their heart on fire.
  • New Scents– A new year means new candle scents. 2022 trending fragrances include Palo Santo, Gardenia, Teakwood and Leather – distinct aromas that stimulate relaxion and add ambiance. 

While candles are the perfect addition for a romantic evening, it is essential to keep safety in mind. NCA wants to remind everyone to practice safety by not leaving candles unattended and ensuring candles are kept away from pets and children.
