Asparagus Candles :: Add fresh asparagus around a cylinder shaped candle and instant springtime happiness

So, I just couldn’t stop at the Asparagus Vase!   I thought about what else I could cover in beautiful, fresh asparagus and the natural answer would be candles!

The asparagus spears bring an organic and architectural element to my decor. Plus, it works indoors or outdoors!

Perfect for Spring dinners out on the deck, this eye-pleasing idea will keep all your guests captivated.  To ensure the spears don’t get too hot, just make sure your filled candles are at least 3″ in diameter.

Mine never even got a little hot.
