The season of entertaining is upon us, and if you’re looking to take your tablescape game to new heights, Jenna Lyons has quite the literal solution for you: 30-inch taper candles. In a recent Instagram story, Loveseen, the RHONY star’s cruelty-free fake eyelashes brand, shared a video of Lyons carefully unwrapping the dramatic candles as she exclaims: “Chic!”

Her color of choice appears to be eggplant by Creative Candles (she also has a pair in ivory displayed on her coffee table), but the brand carries each pair in 41 shades. The slow-burning, smokeless, dripless sets claim to give you 24 hours of burn time, so you won’t be running around with a lighter to reset the mood before your entrées are served. And you don’t have to worry about them toppling over either. Each order includes a bit of beeswax to help secure the candlesticks firmly in your holder of choice.

How can the rest of your table compete with the 30-inch taper candle drama? Try incorporating designer Nate Berkus’s formula for the perfect setting by adding some handwoven details, mismatching your glassware, and breaking out the good stuff for your guests. Between Lyons’s towering tapers and Berkus’s tips, don’t blame us when your table is so inviting that your friends never want to leave.

More Extra-Tall Taper Candles We Love

While you’ll be hard-pressed to find other 30-inchers out there, we did dig up an assortment of candles that belong to the 18-and-up club—which, in our opinion, still falls into dramatic-taper territory.
