These are very simple little gifts that are made of miniature roses, plain terra cotta pots and some moss and a pillar candle. Scented ever so lightly with a natural rose essence it makes a lovely smell and look in a country style room, or even a Victorian room. Roses and moss are always a romantic addition.

They make lovely gifts for any occasion and when used for a table centerpiece the rose scented candle pot imparts a light rose smell while the candles and roses and moss offer a romantic touch to the table.
