Yes, with the European system of five candles per guest with small candles and innovation, your candlelight party can be an emotional festive mood experience that guests will remember and indeed talk about for years.
Keep in mind, the large pillar and taper candles used at the usual U.S. candle lit party have basically the same size lit flame's the European use of small candles.
Thus the candle light effect is determined almost totally by the number of lit flames, not the size of your candles producing the light. A fifteen dollar candle and holder, and a 25 cent candle produce very close to the same size flame and light.
The smaller candles burn from 2 to 5 hours, depending on the candle particular use.
The traditional U.S. candle and holder used at candlelight parties costs
in the area of ten to 15 dollars to produce ONE light.
European system uses small candles that we supply in 5 for each guest at the total of $1.25 range. Thus the European festive system not only supplies three to five times the lit candles per guest it still saves you up to 80% of usual cost and stores in one fifth the space.
Holders are also one fifth the cost and take almost no storage room. Read about how we use Tea lights here. (burn 4 to 5 hours) 25 cents each.
