Pencil Candles in a Bucket of Sand. Fill a galvanized tub with sand, slide in a handful of candles, don with a festive ribbon, and you have an instant centerpiece; perfect for a Christmas table. I could change the colour for other celebrations.
The pergola works hard, and its multiple uses exemplify Boekel’s design mantra for the garden. It shelters the outdoor sofa, supports the climbing star jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) and holds the outdoor lighting.
