Outdoor candles: The perfect atmosphere for your outdoor space
Summer is here and with it the time to enjoy the outdoors. What could be better for a pleasant mood than the flickering of candlelight? Whether traditionally made of real wax or modern LED, outdoor candles are the perfect addition to any outdoor oasis and bring a warm atmosphere to the outdoor area. In this guide, restaurateurs will learn everything they need to know about outdoor candles: From choosing the right candles to the healthiest options and the different types suitable for outdoor use.
What candles are suitable for outdoor?
There are several types of candles that are particularly well suited for outdoor use. Here are some popular options:
✓ Candle jars: In the outdoor area, candles in jars enjoy great popularity, because they are, in a sense, a candle holder and a candle in one. They are characterized by a long burning time and high practicality. When the candle is completely burned down, the decorative glass containers can be wonderfully reused. Equipped with a small or large tea light or flowers we breathe new life into the candle jar.
✓ Pillar candles and garden torches: Pillar candles are cylindrical candles that are well suited for both indoor and outdoor use. They have a long burn time and create a warm and cozy candlelight. Be sure to use a candle holder for the pillar candle, both to better protect it from the wind and to ensure safe use. Garden torches are another option for outdoor use. They are often made of wood or metal and can be used with either candles or oil. Garden torches create an impressive mood lighting and are perfect for evenings in the garden.
✓ Tea lights: Tea lights can also create a feel-good factor in the outdoor area, as long as you combine them with matching candle holders that provide some wind protection. Make sure that the tea lights are re-lightable. If you want to avoid the risk of blowing out, you can also rely on LED tea lights.
✓ LED candles: LED candles are a safer alternative to traditional candles because they do not produce heat or flame in the traditional sense. Here, a flame is imitated by LED technology. This makes them ideal for use around children and pets. Moreover, outdoor LED candles can be programmed to flicker and glow like real candles. They create a warm and inviting atmosphere without the risks associated with traditional candles. For your staff, outdoor LED candles mean labor savings because they don't have to spend time replacing and lighting them in front of guests.
No matter what type of outdoor candles you choose, the safety aspect should always be at the top of your list. Place the real wax candles on a sturdy base and make sure they are out of the reach of children and pets. Never leave the candles burning unattended and extinguish them completely.

What is an outdoor candle?
Outdoor candles are specially designed for outdoor use, which create a pleasant atmosphere and at the same time withstand the challenges of wind and weather in the best possible way . They are ideal for bathing the outdoor area of a restaurant, café or beer garden in atmospheric light and encouraging guests to stay. Compared to conventional candles, outdoor candles are characterized by their robust design and longer burning time. Meanwhile, there are even outdoor LED candles that are an environmentally friendly and safe alternative to real wax candles and do without an open flame.
What are the healthiest candles?
Choosing the right candles for outdoor use is not only a question of aesthetics, but also of health. Many conventional candles contain chemical additives and can release harmful substances when burned. Therefore, when choosing a candle, you should ideally pay attention to the RAL specification. RAL certification guarantees that the candle contains no harmful substances, retains its shape, burns cleanly and is generally safe and reliable.
