Here's a simple idea for all you wine and port lovers out there (you know who you are fellow friends). If you have any old (or new) wine boxes or crates from packaged gifts or festive treats, turn them into a memorable keepsake by filling the box half way up with sand and then securely pushing in either chunky block or tapered candles. This makes for a perfect source of light for your candle lit dinner – bright, yet romantic. Let's face it, only one candle to eat by usually means a nice little spaghetti stain is on the cards.
As with all candles though, please don't leave them unattended. And never play with fire. Unless you have a dragon tattoo.
