This Candle Holder Is For The Birds

There’s so many ways to decorate with tea lights — from floating them in a bowl of water to illuminating fancy schmancy candle holders from Crate + Barrel. We prefer this fun canary from CB2 (Crate + Barrel’s funkier younger sister). It’s a pop of bright Tweetie Bird yellow to perk up any room of your house when it’s not lit, making it a conversation piece in its own right. But for your sake, we hope you don’t own any cats!
