I don’t know why but I always light a candle or two or three on the Easter table. It makes me feel special and it makes the meal festive. Besides, Easter is a religious holiday and the candles are the symbol of Jesus Christ’s resurrection and eternal life. And the Easter eggs are the symbol of Easter, as they are said to have been coloured by Christ’s blood when He was on the cross. So why don’t we combine the two and get the so beautiful egg candles? And, of course, you need a special place where to keep them. I found the perfect one – the Egg-a-Labra, the candle holder for egg candles.
This special candle holder is the perfect piece for the centre of the table and it has a wooden support that looks like an urn. It is actually the base for the metal arms of the candle holder. The wood comes from the mango tree and it is painted in white and each of the metal arms is made to support a votive candle, in this case an egg-shaped Easter candle. You can purchase it now for $149 from Pottery Barn.
