We've done a few of these traditional
candle lighting centerpieces for
Bar/Bat Mitzvahs this season.
Sometimes the candles are part of
Sometimes they are in glass holders
on the sides.
Either way it's a great place to make it
personalized with a cutout name and often
a photo...sometimes more than one.
No amount of candles seems to be
the "correct amount". We've done
from just one candle to up to
seventeen! Now that was quite a few
and certainly not the norm. I'll bet
there were some folks wiggling in
their seats at that one.
I do see a trend towards shorter and
faster candle lightings but I can't image
they will ever stop happening.
