I've never used these things together before; in fact I'm not sure I've used them at all, as opposed to displaying them on a shelf somewhere. Both the candle holders and the bowl (dish? jar? container?) were golden wedding gifts to my grandmother (and my grandfather, too, technically, but these were from friends of hers). I never noticed how close in tone to the wood they were until I tried to photograph them.
This is how I set the table for my supper on winter solstice night. All that sunshine color was very satisfying. I didn't even need to light the candles.
