Tealights are the back up and back bone of filling out a festive candlelight party with 5 candles per guest.
We sell both half inch and tea lights for under 25 cents a candle. Thus five candle lights per guest cost 1.25 or less. Half inch candles, clips and metal holders go from one time, your first festive party at $1.50 up.
However, you can use tealights with no holder for making a number like 39 spelled out in center of birthday party for someone 39, . using 24 tealights, no holders, about $6.00. works fine right on table. Someone
9 years old party $3.00.
You can use drinking glasses filled with water and float tealights and we can tell a zillion other ways to use tealights no holder.
Here is a bunch floating in a serving bowl.
Note, you can use tealights with no candle holder. They normally come with an aluminum container. You can obtain tealights with acrylic holder which makes more or an ornate cup holder in itself. However, the Acrylic contained teaclights
are more expensive.
