Clear Bottle Candle Holders

I am so stealing this eco-chic tabletop candle display idea from the December 2009 issue of Elle Decoration UK, via Happy Mundane. Note the clever mix of same-height clear water/wine bottles with the varied candle lengths. LOVE! Perfect for the holidays and beyond! No flowers needed 😉
