The center, more than anything else, is always important. All things point to the center as the aspect which every person looks at, the point that catches the attention of people, the point that allows people to reach a state of equilibrium, the point that gives life. When you look at your homes, it is rather difficult to find which part or point of your house is the center of attention but try sitting in your living room and check whether the center piece of your living room is wonderful enough for it to capture your guest’s attention. Why do we need centerpieces anyway? Well, first of all, we do not want to put an empty center table in front of your guests, right? We want them to feel at home and to feel the warmth of your home even. Candles customized in many different ways, are among the most creative centerpieces that you could ever have. Not only is it used for design but it also adds to the warmth of your home, most especially, your living room. With candle center pieces, there is a mixture of design and functionality. You can even just have a giant white candle and design it by yourself according to how you want it to look like. Take a look at these candle center piece designs and get some inspiration for your next centerpiece project. Remember that you have the option to use scented or unscented candles.

You can check other flowers which look the same in your own country. You can choose any shape of flower as long as it is in white.
