A soft, but romantic look with dripping wax.
Make it unexpected, put a candle in a wine bottle for a centerpiece.
Would you like a glass of wine?
Its 5:00 oclock somewhere!
Candlelight glow can sweeten up any corner.

Want to add a special touch to a spot in your room?  Make it romantic?  Believe it or not by just adding candlelight, your almost there.  Now give those candles a defined look by "dripping" the wax.  This can be achieved by setting up the candles in a controlled area, place them on something wax won't ruin.  Now let them burn a while, then lightly add a soft breeze their way.  This can be achieved by having a low fan blowing softly their direction, or by simply waving your hand alongside them, causing some of the melted wax to drip down the sides.  PLEASE be careful when manipulating candles!  But the result is purely romantic, don't you think?
