Advantages: Looks attractive, good quality, protects surfaces
Disadvantages: None from me
You may have read my latest reviews on Yankee Candles. I am a really big fan of the Yankee products and have tried a number of their candles now. One thing that I had never really thought about was getting a Yankee Candle holder that was until my Sister very kindly decided to get me one. She had gone into the local shop that I get my Yankee Candle products from will full intentions of getting me a candle but when she spotted the holders she decided it would be something different and go great on my fire place. Here are my thoughts on the product that she got me.
There is a big variety of Yankee candle holders, I guess I just hadn't paid that much notice to them before, I have spotted a great range of Christmas ones started to come through though. The holder that I have is the Tulip tray and I guess the title of it explains what it is. The cost I believe is around the £15.00 mark. If you think it is expensive, at least you will always have it as opposed to the candles that eventually burn out. My sister got this from the local independent retailer but most stockists of Yankee candles will now sell the holders as well.
The candle holder came all beautifully wrapped and I was quite keen to see what my sister had brought me. There is a definite quality to the plate as it is has quite a heavy feeling to it, this isn't some sort of flimsy and cheap product, it is a quality piece of china. The plate measures just less than 7 inches in diameter and is quite deep so whatever candle you decide to put into it, he plate will hold it well.
The design is really pretty on this holder, delicate and attractive in my opinion. The outer part of the plate is a cream background with an ivy printing running all the way around it. Then there is a very thin blue line running along the edge. The centre part of the plate is a green background with a blue check across it. There is something a little old fashioned about the print, almost giving the china an antique look about it.
There is a great finish to the plate, it has a glossy look over the china which you perhaps wouldn't expect for something as simple as a candle holder but Yankee have really added the same amount of quality into the candle holder that they do into their actual candles and tarts. I first added a large house warmer jar to the plate, it just made it look great on my fire place, I have also added about 4 tea lights on the plate and once lit they make a really nice feature by the fire as well as having the plate to protect your surfaces.
I would be more than happy to recommend this product, full of character and classic looking it's a 5 out 5 from me
Thank you for reading
