Use a cake stand for this! Love pillar candles grouped like this. You could put pink and purple ribbons around them as an advent wreath and then switch to a berry wreath and greenery or red ribbons at Christmas.
Year round crate filled with different things for each season. Love this simple holiday decorating / repurposing idea: Fill a crate with jars, candles, and greenery and/or pine cones. (via Kaleidoscope of Colors)
