Summer Style: Ketchup Bottle Candle


For some reason, I think of Summer as the most casual of all the seasons. Maybe it's the memories of running around barefoot in the grass, the low-key attitude given off by shorts and T-shirt ensembles, or that Summer vacations inherently equate ditching your suit and tie, but whatever it is, it certainly allows for a little kitsch. That's why I'm so enamored with this Ketchup Bottle Candle ($13.95): it's the ultimate kitschy lighting for your leisurely Summer barbecue. And actually, empty bottles of actual ketchup may be just the right size to hold a tapered candle: a condiment candlestick — but even that might be too formal for a hot dogs and hamburgers crowd.
